. . . songs . . .
". . .I’ve said it before, but one of the real reasons I started getting into composing is that I thought: ‘Well, if John and Paul can write songs…’…The hang-up of playing my songs to John and Paul always used to hold me back, as I’ve said, because I knew how it would sound finished, and I had to try and convince them in one play. For that reason, there are a lot of numbers of mine that I decided not to do anything about. It was a shyness - a withdrawal - and I always used to take the easy way out. . . Now? Well, maybe I’m cocky! Because now, I don’t care if nobody else likes it. It’s a matter of taste. And maybe I don’t like some of their songs, either. What I still do, though, is to bring out the numbers I think are the easiest to get across. The ones I think will take the shortest time to make an impact… the ones that’ll sound the nicest tunes…Summing me up, I don’t mind admitting that I definitely USED TO BE self-conscious. But now I’ve got less hang-ups about everything, not just music. . ."
