Great show guys. I like those rarities. I'm looking forward to re-appraising both McCartney and McCartney 2 again. Just weighing in on Waterfalls discussion. The song, as I read it, is a metaphor about the fear of taking chances but also the need to, in order to find love. He's having a conversation with himself, using metaphors (waterfalls, polar bears, motor cars) to symbolize a man taking too great a risk and suffering the consequences. On the other hand, he recognises his desire for a real and lasting love (but I need love like a etc etc). If you take the song literally, of course it sounds dumb but I never have and have never had a problem with it. I guess it's one of those songs you either "get" or don't.

Also, someone was speculating about the meaning of "I'm Carrying." I remember hearing or reading that it was a song about Linda's pregnancy. If you look at the lyrics again this makes sense.
