Come along with Paul to his bouncy castle
on 28 July 2007
This album has the song "Nobody knows", which is as close as McCartney gets to saying nobody really knows what life is all about. And he says he likes not knowing. There is also a Golden Slumbers, nursery style song with lyrics "The world will soon be waking to a summer's day": Read "our present miserable nightmare of consciousness is but a dream". But he never is quite saying that because Paul McCartney is aspiritual. His spirit is entirely in his music and sometimes the lightness of it makes it depressingly unprofound. So there is a kind of fun immaturity mixed with traces of melodic splendour that drift about inside him. As he said in a song not on this album "What have those songs got to do with me?"
