Riff: Paul McCartney – “Turned Out”

Oct 14, 2013

Well looking back it didn’t hurt me/It did something for my soul/It taught me when you find the love/Don’t break it try to make it whole

from Turned Out lyrics by Paul McCartney

Braving the stormy weather, an uncharacteristically uncertain McCartney takes a trip down to the ocean for some soul-searching about a love that he’s been fighting against on a driving old-school rocker that could have been lifted straight from Band On The Run; [LISTEN].
