I 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?
