Jennifur Sun - Ramona. He reveals to his audiences before he plays the song that is was HE who played the raunchy, driving guitar lead on Paperback Writer. He even uses the exact guitar in concert that he used in the studio, which is an Epiphone Casino. The PW session photos show him playing the Epi. Thus ends decades of speculation about who the lead guitarist was in this song. Pete - San Antonio, Texas.
Barry - Sauquoit, Ny. I would bet that Paul wrote this about John. Poor Cyn was just a safety net and the son who works for the dailymail is Julian being a great PR subject matter for the DailyMail to write stories about.
PR and real life. Emily - St Louis, Mo. The critic George Melly wrote Throughout , I found their singles releases less and less interesting, for me, Paperback Writer was a poor thing, a falling off. I agree with George Melly absolutely. McCartney cannot - opposed to Lennon- maintain an excited feeling.
McCartney starts this song by - inspired by Lennon - hammering on the same note. But when he comes to Johan - Stockholm, Sweden. On April 22, , I am seeing a reference to Yesterday and Today album at top of this page. That song was NOT on that album, nor was it on Revolver.
Carl - Apg, Md. His father Kingsley, maybe? Eric - Coral Gables, Fl. I have no idea why I love this song so so much!!! Been listening to it non-stop for the past 3 hours!
Akina - Dhaka, Bangladesh. But on another note, I really love this song, becase I am indeed a Paperback Writer. Sydney - Dallas, Tx. It was done in the sessions which also produced the songs on "Revolver", and by the way some people were disappointed that the Beatles did not perform any songs from "Revolver" during their touring. Interesting point about the moustaches. I think Auntie Lil was right. Mary - Chandler, Az. So it was noted that Paul and John would always compete for the A sides of singles Did they flip a coin, or did George Martin the producer get the final say, or did the group members get to vote on it, or was it the record company executives who got the final say?
Personally they should have put Rain on another A side single to give it the recognition it really deserved. Myla - San Diego, Ca. What a song,what a concept,what an idea,what greatness. This is a powerful example of pop rock song writing. Paul could write about anything and write top quality songs,which is the main thing,the quality of a song,and this song has it. George - Belleville, Nj. Ben - Toronto, On. On June 25th, "Paperback Writer" moved into the 1 spot for one week, then "Strangers in the Night" by Frank Sinatra bumped it out for one week.
But "Paperback Writer" reclaimed the top spot for another week!!! I had made made comments on daytripper and paperback writer and I had confused the two sorry. Paperback writer has the promotional film and it is the song on guitar I encourage players to learn. Both of these songs have a great riff One again I apoligize to the readers of these comments for the confusion. Brian - Boston, Ma. Also in the promotional film George Harrison plays a Gibson SG I might be wrong but I think this is the first time we as fans have seen him play this guitar.
Prior he had been known for Gretchs and rickenbackers. This Gibson SG gives a somewhat heavier sound. The guitar itself is hard and heavy and yet the harmonizing vocals give it more mellow tone a truly breakthru song for the Beatles Brian - Boston, Ma. I recently learned to play Daytripper on guitar. To those who might be just learning guitar or only know a few chords I encourage you to learn this.
What is great about this song is that it has such balls. It is not a difficult song to learn it sounds more complex then it is. It does take some practice like anything else but it is pretty basic. I am not exactly sure off the top of my head what album the Beatles were working on when they released this single [because I think it was released as a single and not an album cut but I could be wrong] But I think this was around 65 or so.
Around the time of Rubber Soul and then of course followed by Revolver in Just from a fan of guitar this was a great period for the Beatles some really great riffs.
I also think that it is no coinsedence that around this time marijuna use among them was heavy and very influential on their sound. Great stuff Brian - Boston, Ma. John - Grand Island, Ny. I love this song, cause it totally describes me!
Ringo Starr played the drums and tambourine on Paperback Writer. Paul was lead vocalist and played bass on Rickenbacker guitar. John played rhythm guitar and back up vocal. The single was released on A side with "Rain" on B. It stayed at No. John - Milwaukee, Wi. I agree, the guitar riff really makes the song. Daevid - Glendale, Ca. John and George both play hollow body Gibsons on this song. A good friend and Beatle fan has played me an original mono single pressing and that is the way to hear this song because it gives the guitars justice.
In my opinion, there has never been a satisfactory stereo version to the song, even on the "1" CD. It is really a heavy song when you hear it in mono. Tim - Reston, Va. Paperback writer, paperback writer. Dear Sir or Madam, will you read my book? It took me years to write, will you take a look? I could make it longer if you like the style. If you really like it you can have the rights.
It could make a million for you overnight. If you must return it you can send it here, But I need a break, And I want to be a paperback writer, Paperback writer. Paperback Writer song meanings. Add your thoughts 36 Comments. General Comment Well, the story goes that Paul said he could write a song about anything, so his Grandmother asked him to write one about a paperback writer. No Replies Log in to reply. There was an error. A secondhand bookseller I went to a while ago had many on sale from that time period.
In my mind, that probably where Paul got the other part of his inspiration, besides his grandma. The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics.
