Riff: Paul McCartney – “Looking At Her”

Oct 14, 2013

She’s got everybody talking about her/She’s good, she’s kind, she’s so refined/But me, I’m losing my mind

from Looking At Her lyrics by Paul McCartney

Interspersing jaunty acoustic pop with quick bursts of squelchy electro-rock, a weak-willed McCartney reveals his frustrations at being part of the crowd who can’t help but turn their heads whenever the girl who’s ‘kind, refined and as sweet as wine’ crosses their path; [LISTEN].
