Paul McCartney reveals his favorite Beatles song!
And it's not one that you'd expect!
Paul McCartney’s favorite Beatles song!
Paul recently sat down with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe for an interview on his former iconic band, following the release of McCartney III, his latest solo album. While talking about The Beatles, Lowe asked Paul his favorite song with the fab four, and if he has ever swerved the question. Paul joked:
I always swerve it.
And he also has a song that he tells people is his favorite with The Beatles. Paul said:
I always say ‘You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)’, which is a zany, zany little B-side that nobody knows – but we had such fun making it. It’s like a little comedy record. And I just remember the joy of making it.
The track that Paul is talking about was released as the B-Side to the ‘Let It Be’ single in 1970. However, Paul McCartney later gave a list of his favorite songs with the fab four, enlisting:
But there’s a lot of songs that I love of the Beatles. I think ‘Strawberry Fields’ is a great song; I think ‘Hey Jude’ worked out great. I’ve got a lot of favourite songs: ‘Blackbird’ I love, ‘Eleanor Rigby’ I love.
Furthermore, Lowe also asked him the Beatles song that he believes he has heard the most. And Paul McCartney knew the answer right away, saying:
I would say probably ‘Let It Be’ … It’s the most ubiquitous. It sort of got everywhere. Ubiquitous from the Latin, ubi quo, meaning everywhere.
