Quote of the Day — Paul McCartney Talks to Rolling Stone

“When I write a song, I have my other songs hanging over it. I suppose the minute you write a decent song, that’s a curse. You’re always like, ‘Oh shit, I’ve just written “Eleanor Rigby,” how am I going to top that?’ I think you go, ‘I’m not.’ You just realize you’re not going to top it, but you write “Blackbird.” Paul McCartney, on whether it’s difficult to continue writing good music when he’s already had so much success.
