On this day (June 18) in 1942 James Paul McCartney was born in Walton Hospital, Liverpool, England. 15 years later, McCartney would meet John Lennon, and in 5 years the two will begin changing the world, forever. On this special day, while millions of fans online are sending their words to Sir Paul, we chose to focus on this incredibly touching song McCartney wrote just a minute before The Beatles‘ break-up. ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ was featured on McCartney’s first solo album, ‘McCartney’, released in 1970. Now you can play this wonderful piece of music with the Lyrics & Chords in sweet sync.
For us (and million others), ‘Maybe I’m Amazed‘ represents everything that is good in Paul McCartney. He wrote it as a tribute to his wife, Linda, saying thank you for the way she helped him while The Beatles we’re breaking up. It’s incredible to think that he was only 27 years old when he wrote this song and already got to change the world in less than a decade.
Although most of the album was recorded in McCartney’s farm in Scotland, while his family was with him, ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ was done at Abbey Road in London and McCartney played all the instruments by himself. You can not play this song without getting chills down your spine. This is McCartney in his purest form. Happy Birthday Paul, thank you for everything.
