      Songs Paul wrote for Linda/inspired by Linda:  Mama Miss America, Lovely Linda, Maybe I'm Amazed, Golden Earth Girl, Country Dreamers (?) that goes "You and I, country dreamers," Cook Of The House, My Love, So Bad, seems there are more? No fussin' and fightin' songs such as were inspired by Jane Asher  like "Looking Through You," "We Can Work It Out," "For No One," "Yesterday" "You Won't See Me" ?--because Paul and Linda were happily married. He wrote "Here, There and Everywhere" and "And I Love Her" for Asher. 

      Songs written for Nancy? "My Valentine," "Hosanna," "Happy With You," "Hand in Hand," "Fu You" (?),  "Everybody's Looking At Her" (?),  "Save Us," "New,"--more? "Alligator" (?) "I Can Bet" (?), "Scared" and "Road" in a way, seems to mention their road trip out West, also "Highway" does from "Electric Arguments" and a few more from "EA"seem written for her--"Lovers In a Dream," "Lifelong Passion," "Is This Love?"-- and "Dance Till We're High" (?) which seems  tinged with melancholy. It isn't "young love" all giddy just starting out to a long lifetime ahead.

      For Heather Mills: "See Your Sunshine" (?), "Your Eternal Flame," "Heather,"  I think "Riding To Vanity Fair" is; "Friends To Go," and a couple more on "Chaos and Creation In the Backyard" are, that real mushy one, can't recall its title right now...oh yes, it's "A Certain Softness" I guess that's for her, also "Promise To You Girl" and "This Never Happened Before"(?) and perhaps the sad rather mournful "At the Mercy." Some of the songs on there for her are unhappy while some are happy love songs. Reflecting before and after the split in the relationship, one would think.

        He did not write Yesterday for Jane! If anyone, it was about his mother. He also wrote What You’re Doing about Jane.

        And Fuh You sounds more like to Linda (on the night that I met you I was on the town) He met Nancy during the daytime in a shop in the Hamptons.

          I thought Paul and Linda had already known Nancy and her first husband. Or maybe it was that Nancy knew Linda, and Paul didn't really meet Shevell until that day in the Hamptons shop.

          Maybe "Yesterday" was for both Jane and his mother. A line goes "love was such an easy game to play" (it was "yesterday") which seems to refer to a love affair, doesn't it.

          Yes, now that you mention it I too sort of had the impression "Fuh You" might be about Linda.

            Nancy knew Linda. I had heard that perhaps the 2 couples had been at the same parties in the Hamptons, though.

            Yesterday definitely had nothing to do with Jane. 

              "Every Night" on "McCartney was composed for Linda. "Arrow Through Me" on "Back to the Egg" was perhaps an "argument" type fussin' and fightin' song about Linda, they'd had a verbal spat, and "The Other Me" suggests he felt guilty for not being all that nice to Linda during some sort of verbal tiff, he was in a bad mood or something. 

              "You Tell Me" on "Memory Almost Full" seems an ambiguous understated love song with poetic lyrics perhaps directed to Mills. 

                He wrote the very smooth pleasing "Lindiana" for Linda.

                  "The Night Before" was probably inspired by his redhead...or his most well-known redhead, anyway. Asher. Another "fight song" albeit one that sounds warm, infectious, exuberantely charming, and fond of its subject.
