In 2013, the Beatles' On Air - Live at the BBC Volume 2 was released, essentially providing fans with new music over 40 years after the band's official breakup. Fans were delighted to hear so many unreleased tracks, but what if there were even more lost Beatles songs?
In an interview with the London Evening Standard, Paul McCartney discussed how, in the band's early days, he and John Lennon would think of songs and simply forget them before they could be written down. McCartney claims that dozens of songs got lost this way, and will never be heard by the public.
McCartney also went on to talk about how modern day recording devices prevents this from happening. Now, he says, it's easy to keep record of something as soon as it pops into your head, preventing it from getting lost in your mind.
If modern technology had been around back then, McCartney teases, perhaps so many of these early Beatles songs wouldn't be "lost" in memory.
