“I was looking for someone to work with, trying to think of something imaginative to do and one day my manager said, ‘Do you fancy writing with Elvis Costello?” MaCartney said (via Team Rock). “It might be a great thing.’ I said, ‘Yeah.”

“Costello came down to my studio and we sat opposite each other with our guitars because I had said to him early on that this is how I’d written with John [Lennon], with me being left handed and him being right handed – it was almost like looking in a mirror.” McCartney said.
