--> "Somebody said to me, 'But the Beatles were anti-materialistic.' That's a huge myth. John and I literally used to sit down and say, 'Now, let's write a swimming pool.'"

* ScheduleSlip: Having recorded two albums a year for their whole career up to that time, the 10 month gap between the release of ''{{Music/Revolver}}'' and ''Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand'' raised eyebrows. But the success of the latter convinced record companies that allowing performers more time to perfect their music was a wiser strategy.

* {{Corpsing}}: Paul cracks up during the second verse of "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" because John mooned him in the recording studio as he sang the line "so he waits behind".

In some cases this is due to ValuesDissonance - he particularly detested "Run for Your Life" for its severe misogyny, which is perfectly understandable. For a lot of them it just seemed he was being churlish though.
