On Easter Monday, April 21, Sir Paul will share the secrets of creating and recording his music during Radio 2's two-hour special celebration of music writing, Sold On Song. During the interview, Sir Paul revealed that his love of words was instilled by one of his schoolteachers:"I used to read plays when I was kid on top of the bus, I still like to do that, read Dickens and stuff. I love to find uses of words. And then people like Elvis, Chuck Berry and Dylan came along and they took it into the poetic and exciting realm.
"A lot of my songs are just me playing with words, I mean Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, I don't know a Desmond or a Molly. I'm just imagining them."
