Mccartney Writes Without Purpose

Musician SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY laughs at fans who claim to understand the songs he writes, because most of the time they mean nothing. The former Beatle claims he sits down to write songs with no idea about he wants to create. He says, "When I write something, half the time I don't have a specific idea of what it's about. "I've always had a wave of people who interpret things and say, 'Oooh...he's talking about Yoko.' And I'm thinking, 'What? I'm bloody not. I'm talking about a car.' Yoko, Volvo, easy mistake."

Well In away I agree with that analogy and disagree.True it may seem to have no purpose in that he just writes what is in his mood stream from his muses and his heart. On the other hand, the purpose is to provide enjoyment, entertain ment and good vibrations through words set to music.,love doris.
