Paul McCartney has just posted a new 12-song Spotify playlist on his official PaulMcCartney.com site. Every month McCartney will post a new tracklisting with a specific theme — with March spotlighting some of McCartney's favorite songs for spring.
In the “Sticking Out Of My Back Pocket” section of the site, a message was posted, reading, “Each month we will highlight a selection of deep cuts along with a few classics. As the first days of spring arrive, we’re focusing on Paul’s songs about nature.”
With so many Beatles and solo classics under his belt, Paul McCartney admits that at times songwriting can be considered nothing short of divine intervention: “If you're lucky, songs are easy to come up with. The magic just happens quite quickly. Some of them, you've got to slog at; it's like anything. But the ones I feel luckiest with are songs like that. Something like 'Yesterday' really came without me knowing it. Y'know, I just woke up one morning, I kind of dreamed that melody. So, I mean, I was just lucky, I don't know really how that one happened. I haven't got an explanation for that — except maybe this idea of a composer being some sort of vehicle that this (exaggerated voice) force flows through.”
