What the Beatles said about “Carry That Weight”
JOHN 1980: "That’s Paul. Apparently he was under strain at that period."
PAUL circa-1994: "I’m generally quite upbeat, but at certain times things get to me so much that I just can’t be upbeat anymore and that was one of those times. ‘Carry that weight a long time’– like forever! That’s what I meant… in this heaviness there was no place to be. It was serious, paranoid heaviness and it was just very uncomfortable."
