STOCKI SURMISES ON THE SAD DEATH OF AMY WINEHOUSE

Short Thought on Hope and Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney is never seen as the most political or spiritual of Beatles. He has certainly never written anything lyrical to challenge

McCartney 

Imagine by Beatle John or My Sweet Lord by Beatle George. However, as I lay on my early morning holiday bed listening to him on my iPod shuffle I became aware of a theme that I had never recognised before in McCartney’s work; hope! Now some might immediately jump to his song Hope Of Deliverance and say that it states the patently obvious. Maybe! However my songs that appeared spookily close  together on that shuffle were Tug Of War from album of same title, Summer’s Day from McCartney II and Golden Earth Girl from Off the Ground. All three songs speak of a deep hopefulness of what will happen beyond the difficult moments the singer is in; the entire culture in Tug Of War, the very personal in Summer’s Day and the eco world in Golden Earth Girl. Just what Macca is placing his hope in is hard to say. I have already blogged on this issue in my Lyric Of the Day on The End Of The End (see link below). Perhaps in the end McCartney is simply expressing the secular wishfulness of something better. Perhaps it is just another sign in the art of our culture that human beings need hope and even if we are atheist or agnostic when there is nothing tangible we make it up.
