In this episode, Host Diana Erickson and regular contributor Dr. Duncan Driver dig into Paul McCartney's commentary on the song, Dear Friend, from the book, The Lyrics.
This episode considers the musical conversation between Lennon and McCartney at this time, in 1971, so God, How Do You Sleep, and Jealous Guy are all explored.
Dear Friend is not only a beautiful song but an important one in the conversation between Lennon and McCartney in 1971—a time when their relationship was strained and spiraling. Diana and Duncan consider the context in which the song was created and what the song communicates.
