Paul McCartney, “Every Night”

Paul McCartney, “Every Night,” from the album, McCarthy (1970). This was off of his very first solo album. I remember seeing this album on the store shelves, but I wasn’t into rock music when this came out. “Maybe I’m Amazed” is on here too. Another great, classic song. I never even knew what this song was called or even knew it very well until I started hearing it a lot lately. I can’t believe I missed this song.

The album itself was widely panned but it has gained a bit more respect in later years. The entire album is characterized by effortless simplicity. That was the source of both the original critique of and subsequent praise for the album.

The lyrics are quietly, effortlessly simple also. They’re also quite perfect.

Every night I just want to go out
Get out of my head
Every day I don’t want to get up
Get out of my bed
Every night I want to play out
And every day I want to do

Ooh ooh oh oh
But tonight I just want to stay in

And be with you
And be with you
Ooh…
Ooh…
Believe me mama

Every day I lean on a lamp post
I’m wasting my time
Every day I lay on a pillow
I’m resting my mind
Every morning brings a new day
Every night that day is through
Ooh ooh oh oh
But tonight I just want to stay in

And be with you
And be with you
Ooh…
Ooh…
Believe me mama ooh…
Ooh…
