Riff: Paul McCartney – “I Can Bet”

Oct 14, 2013

Listen to me/We can give it a try/I look you straight in the eye/And pull you to me

from I Can Bet lyrics by Paul McCartney

McCartney gets rather suggestive here as he talks of leaving his next move entirely to his lover’s imagination, a bold approach slightly undermined by the fact that this chugging 70s rock number is yet another clingy plea for some sign of relationship stability; [LISTEN].
