Two of Us,” appeared on the final Beatles album, “Let it Be.” It was also written by McCartney (credit Lennon-McCartney), its meaning revolved around carefree times Paul and Linda McCartney shared, special memories, and an escape from the pressures of international megastardom. 

“Two of Us” It’s reflective and nostalgic, and sounds like descriptions of snippets from the fond memories of a close duo.

Linda McCartney stated that she, her husband, and their dog Martha would drive out of London with no particular destination in mind. “I’d say, ‘Let’s get lost’ and we’d keep driving without looking at any signs. Hence, the line in the song, ‘Two of us going nowhere,'” she reportedly said. 

On one such trip, it seems, the spirit of creativity struck Paul. “Paul wrote ‘Two of Us’ on one of those days out. It’s about us.” They parked in a quiet area, surrounded by trees and nature, and Paul began feverishly writing.

The Winding Road is about Beatles splitting. If ever there was a song which summed up the fraught nature of The Beatles’ final months, it was ‘The Long And Winding Road’.

He had a little spurt just before we split. I think the shock of Yoko Ono and what was happening gave him a creative spurt including ‘Let It Be’ and ‘Long And Winding Road’, ’cause that was the last gasp from him. (John Lennon)

‘The Long And Winding Road’ started out as a simple McCartney ballad, written in Scotland in 1968 at a time in which the cracks in The Beatles’ relationships were become ever deeper. A demo was recorded during the White Album sessions, but taken no further.

I was a bit flipped out and tripped out at that time. It’s a sad song because it’s all about the unattainable; the door you never quite reach. This is the road that you never get to the end of (Paul McCartney)

On doing Get Back, McCartney calls on roadie Mal Evans to write down some words that he’s pairing with a new piano part. He’s called it ‘The Long and Winding Road’, and as Ringo Starr reads a newspaper, McCartney and Evans pick and choose some of the phrases they prefer.


Meanwhile, Lindsay-Hogg and Linda Eastman have a discussion about Ringo while McCartney continues to work. Lindsay-Hogg has a really unfortunate history in the series of talking over some of the most magical moments of spontaneous music composition.
Also the cameras catch McCartney strumming away at his bass, seemingly searching for inspiration. Ringo Starr and George Harrison look on as their bandmate works to create a song.
McCartney sings along to his chords, but doesn’t appear to use real words. Instead, it’s simply vowel sounds and rhythmic phrasing, basically gibberish designed as a placeholder where lyrics could potentially go

The ex Beatle has spoken out about The Beatles’ legendary rooftop gig just after they recorded their final album, Let It Be, while explaining that they didn’t write the band’s music for everyone.
 Peter Jackson has edited the footage to tell a more “faithful” story, and during promotion for the series Paul McCartney reminisced about the Fab Four’s understanding of their fans.
All four members of the band – McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr – came from working-class backgrounds in Liverpool.Although the band went on to become multimillionaires, McCartney explained that he always felt the group were for the “working people”.
Speaking about the rooftop gig which occurred on Apple Corps’ roof on January 30, 1969, McCartney hit out at those who weren’t appreciative of his music.

He said: “There’s always the guy in the bowler hat who hates what you’re doing. He’s never going to like it, and he thinks you’re offending his sensibilities.”

McCartney went on: “And occasionally, you would get the kind of snob who would get angry. In a way, that was part of the fun.”

went on to explain that the band were never writing music for “the establishment”, but for the people.

He said: “But you’ve got to remember, as we always did, there’s the people who work for that guy. There’s the young secretaries, the young guys in the office, or the tradesmen or the cleaners. Those are the people who like us.

“Also a lot of the bosses too. We always knew that there’s the establishment, then there’s the working people.”
