Here’s a preview from a podcast from iHeart Media, MPL and Pushkin Industries, McCartney: A Life in Lyrics.
Face cream, a Bristol liquor business, and a lifelong reverence for the elderly are just a few of the rather ordinary and disparate inspirations Paul McCartney brought together in the creation of a masterpiece: “Eleanor Rigby.” In this episode, McCartney and Paul Muldoon tease out the song's lyrical inspirations and discuss the influence a Bernard Herrman score for a Hitchcock film had on the lead single from 1966’s “Revolver."
