In the early 1960s, the Beatles were not yet famous. They were trying hard to become successful. Paul McCartney talks about this time on his podcast, McCartney: A Life in Lyrics.
In the first episode, McCartney talks about the Beatles’ first song, “Love Me Do.” He remembers how the band felt about fame back then. They believed that if they didn’t try too hard to become famous, something good would happen.
McCartney recalls a time when the Beatles got into a small car accident. They were stuck in the snow, and someone said, “Something will happen.” This phrase became important to the band, like a motto.
McCartney says it’s better not to try too hard for something. Just let things happen naturally.
Despite their early struggles, the Beatles became very successful. “Love Me Do” became a hit in 1964, and the band released many albums. They are still considered one of the greatest rock bands ever.
McCartney’s podcast talks about famous Beatles songs like “Yesterday” and “Hey Jude” in its second season.
Paul McCartney also wrote a book called The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present with poet Paul Muldoon in 2021. They talk about the making of McCartney’s songs in the podcast too.
