Paul McCartney & John Lennon, literary agents?

Beatles Rain 45I listened to Paperback Writer again this week.


Listening as a freelance writer gives one new appreciation for the words from Paul McCartney (with John Lennon’s finishing touches). Even today, the song mirrors the desperation of “authors” who’d do ANYTHING to get published.

The Beatles Bible” gives some fun insight about the making of the song.

Do you wonder how this one would do as an unsolicited submission for some publisher’s slush pile?


One thought on “Paul McCartney & John Lennon, literary agents?

  1. I have quite a bit of Beatles memorabilia and a huge fan. However, I never really considered this song, before, as a theme song for authors. I’m playing it now for inspiration! Thanks, Tom!
