Default Come on Paul, that was \"Yesterday\"...


Read the news about Paul trying to get the writting credits on "Yeaterday" changed from "Lennon-McCartney" to "McCartney" because he wrote it all by himself + no other Beatle played on it and also because, for a period of time, Yoko got more royalties out of this song than Paul did.

I sort of see his point but...

Did it take Paul 36 years to realise this ?


And how about Lennon-McCartney songs like "Julia", "Revolution 9", "Give peace a chance" and probably a few more that Paul did'nt play on but got 50% of the royalties anyway...


I know "Yesterday" can't be compared to some of these songs as far as how much (royalties) money they brought in and so forth but if the Beatles & Yoko were to start nit-picking who wrote how much of what, we'd never hear the end of it...


Come on Paul, relax a little O.K. ?


It's not like he's about to go broke...

Be seeing you...

You're right, we'd never hear the end of it. Even when questioned about their individual input into different songs, John and Paul both disagreed about what, how much, and where their own "bits" appeared... and they further contradicted their own previous answers!

I can just hear it now:

"The latest word is..."

"But surely you were closer to the actual event way back when you..."

"No, this is the LAST word..."

"But he said..."

"And I'm saying now..."

"But we can't ask him again..."

"Aww, they're both full of it, Ringo and me did it all by our selves!"

"No, it was Mal and Stu!"

"Certainly wasn't..."

"The latest word is..."

Well, we sure know where John's "bits" appeared.

No lawsuits here... and I don't think John was a bit shy about showing us exactly where his "bits" were (page 300, right?)
