Paul McCartney is an exceptionally brilliant and creative songwriter. He has created waves for generations as among the most influential performers of his era as a member of The Beatles and as a solo act, which implies the man certainly has creativity to spend.

Throughout his tenure with The Beatles in the 1960s, he produced many compositions that were never used in their record, and the same could be stated of his own discography later on.
