Well, I'm prepared to die.
Before you take that the wrong way, I just spent a week updating all my documents and instructions for my son to follow in the event of my untimely death going to/from or while in Texas. I leave Tuesday.
Also updated documents and instructions for Yoly's cousin to follow in looking after her brother for the same reason. I currently look after her 73 year old cognitively challenged brother who, happily, lives in the family home in Gonzales instead of with me.

Thad Evans is alive and well in Salinas California. Had fasting blood work done today and felt tired, sorry for myself, etc. for the rest of the day. About 4:00 p.m. I realised that fasting blood work involved not having coffee beforehand and I forgot to have any afterwards. Damn! I'm addicted to coffee. Anyway, OK.

Last one. Anyone ever listened to Lennon's song "God". I think it's more about mourning the Beatles than anything else.

Here Today (1982)
After Lennon’s murder, there was a lot of talk in the media about whether the Beatles argued, and who liked who. According to McCartney, he almost started buying into the idea that he and Lennon were fighting all the time. However, it was important for him to set the record straight. “It was really, for me, thinking about John and thinking, you know that we had a great relationship, and just like any family, there’s always arguments,” McCartney said in 2018.

“There’s always disputes, but in the end, we loved each other. And I wanted to make a song where I actually said I love you to John.” The singer-songwriter is known to get choked up whenever he talks about or performs this emotional tribute in front of audiences.

Let It Be (1970)
Let It Be was another song that came to him in a dream. According to McCartney, he had been overdoing it with mind-altering substances, and he wasn’t feeling too great with himself when he went to bed. But when he closed his eyes, his late mother came to him in a dream. “When someone who you’ve lost comes back to you in a dream, it’s a miraculous moment because you’re with them,” McCartney said.

“Your mind doesn’t say, ‘Wait a minute, you shouldn’t be here.’ You’re just with them.” In his dream, his mother seemed to realize that McCartney was struggling with life. She turned to him and said, “It’s going to be okay, just let it be.” As soon as she said that, the singer could breathe. He woke up and immediately started writing music.

Blackbird (1968)
McCartney was sitting around with his guitar when he first heard of the Civil Rights movement in the US. According to the songwriter, he was moved by their stories and wanted to write something that might give protesters a little bit of hope.

“In England, a bird is a girl. So Black girl, now’s your time to arise, you know, set yourself free and take these broken wings,” McCartney told GQ. “One of the nice things about music is that you know a lot of people listening to you are going to take seriously what you are saying in the song. I’m very proud of the fact that The Beatles’ output is always really pretty positive.”

Helter Skelter (1968)
One day John was reading the paper when he came across an article quoting Pete Townshend from The Who bragging about recently recording a heavy track. McCartney says that he didn’t know what song Townshend was talking about (and still doesn’t know), but the idea inspired him. So he walked into the studio and told the guys that they have to do a dirtier, louder song than The Who.

The great thing about The Beatles’ tracks is that there are no two songs that are alike. According to McCartney, there are a lot of record artists who will find a great formula, and then the next three singles are kind of the same. “We were young guys and would have gotten bored doing that.”
