Rainy Valentine's Day inspired Paul McCartney to write romantic song for wife

London, November 23 (ANI): Paul McCartney has revealed how a rainy day inspired him to composed a song about wife Nancy Shevell in an upcoming television documentary.

The pair tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in October last year.

In the documentary, titled 'Live Kisses', the 70-year-old musician is seen singing the track, called My Valentine, recorded for his album 'Kisses On The Bottom'.

The former Beatles star said he wrote the tune on Valentine's Day while on holiday in Morocco.

"We were on holiday together, Nancy and I, and it was raining, it's kind of led me towards a kind of minor-y type thing and the sentiment of you know, oh it's raining," the Daily Mail quoted Paul as saying.

"I wrote the song on Valentine's Day in Morocco where we were on holiday and it had been raining, and I'd said 'oh pity about the rain' and all of that, and she'd said to me 'it doesn't matter, we'll have a good time' - and I really liked that because I know there's nothing you can do about weather," he said.

"So I was in the foyer of the hotel, knocking around on this old Joanna that the Irish pianist played in the evenings and because it was raining, because it was not sort of sunny and bright and everyone milling around, this minor-y melody came out and the words were pretty much what I was thinking really, they just spilled out," he revealed.

'Live Kisses' documents a February night in Los Angeles - the very same evening The Beatles made their debut television performance on The Ed Sullivan show 48 years prior - when Paul decided to bring the tunes on his album to life.

He performed the songs at the Capitol Studios earlier this year where much of the collection was created and he is seen singing his love letter to Nancy live.

The show will be broadcast on ITV1 at 11pm on Saturday 24 November. (ANI)
