Snapshot: Paul McCartney
Filed under: Snapshot | Posted by:

Paul McCartney in Barry Miles’ Many Years From Now: “‘Got To Get You Into My Life’ was one I wrote when I had first been introduced to pot. I’d been a rather straight working-class lad but when we started to get into pot it seemed to me to be quite uplifting… I didn’t have a hard time with it and to me it was mind-expanding, literally mind-expanding. So ‘Got To Get You Into My Life’ is really a song about that, it’s not to a person, it’s actually about pot. It’s saying, I’m going to do this. This is not a bad idea. So it’s actually an ode to pot, like someone else might write an ode to chocolate or a good claret.”

Good old Paul McCartney; one of recreational drugs’ greatest ambassadors. You just can’t argue with it can you?

“Weed is bad”
“No, it’s not. Look at Paul McCartney.”
“Oh yeah”.
