’Paul Or Nothing’ Podcast

The place to get all your Paul, all of the time.

Take a Sad Song: interview with James Campion - Paul or Nothing Bonus Episode #99.

May 25th, 2022

Continuing with our run of authorial interviews; I am kindly joined by James Campion, the author of "Take a Sad Song: The Emotional Currency of Hey Jude". This is a book that eschews all the grand, sweeping scope of most Beatle texts and replaces it with an incredibly detailed and granular deep dive into a single Beatles tune. If you ever wanted to know ALL there is to know about Hey Jude, or are interested in how songs work in general, this book is not to be missed!

Also, I do apologise for not actually stating the entire title anywhere in this episode!

Please enjoy. Peace and love,   


You can buy "Take a Sad Song: The Emotional Currency of Hey Jude" at all good book shops/websites.
