Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) The lyrics tell us Paul believes it's going to rain. How's the weather where you are today? Today it is sunny and in the 70's...perfect weather for me. I will probably go spend the day outside again. I did yesterday too.
2) Paul sings that he is sorry because he hasn't "done a bloody thing all day." What do you hope to accomplish this weekend? Maybe clean the house some, read some. I want to spend some time outside before it gets hot next week.
3) He also references butter pie, which is made primarily with potatoes (with onions and, of course, butter). That dish is not popular on this side of the Atlantic. Last time you had potatoes, how were they prepared (baked, mashed, hash browned, french fried ...)? hash browned
4) Linda McCartney is credited as co-writer and performer on this recording. Paul and Linda were partners in real life, too; married 29 years, they raised four children together. They often said they tried never to spend more than a few hours apart. Do you enjoy a lot of togetherness, or do you value your personal time? Has your experience with Covid19 and quarantine changed how you feel about this? I enjoy my personal time. Nothing has changed. Karl is still working. I enjoy when Josh comes out of his room, but he stays in there most of the time. Josh probably wishes I was at work...hee, hee.
5) Paul and Linda came from very different backgrounds. His family was lower middle class, lived in Liverpool's public housing and received government aid. She grew up in affluent Scarsdale, the daughter of a wealthy theatrical attorney. Do you think it's more important for a couple to share a common background, or to share common interests? common interests, there are things Karl likes that I think are so boring and vice versa. However, we have several common interests that allow us to do things together or have conversations about topics.
6) Paul is known for his work ethic. At age 78, he's still making music and performing live. What's your favorite Paul McCartney song? Silly Love Songs, but I think my absolute favorites are probably with The Beatles.
7) In 1971, when this song was a hit, Bobby Fischer was the world's most famous and highest-rated chess player. Do you play chess? no
8) England's Princess Anne turned 21 in 1971. The occasion was commemorated by a formal portrait, taken by celebrated fashion photographer Norman Parkinson. Who took the most recent photo of you? I believe it was either Josh, or a mom from a drive through birthday party I went to.
9) Random question: Do you find it more satisfying to work with your hands, or your head? Probably my head.
