“The Kiss Of Venus” is a track from 2020 album “McCartney III“.
I fight with myself sometimes. I did it recently. I had an afternoon, it was a lovely summer’s day last year, and the window was open and I was in the bedroom in London and I sat down and thought, ‘Oh yeah, I’ll have a noodle.’ So I was noodling on the guitar and I thought, ‘Oh, that’s quite good.’ And I thought, I’ll either just bang it down on my iPhone or I’ll finish it. And I wrestled with myself, and said, ‘Finish it – what else are you gonna do? stick it down then go and watch telly or something? Finish it. Take an hour or’. So I did and I was very proud of myself. I had a cool little book Jools Holland’s wife had given me, kind of an astrology book, all about the planets and the movements and the fantastic synchronicity of it all. A fascinating book, actually, when the planets go through all the little things, if you look at a graph, as it were, of them all, it like makes a lotus. It’s trippy. There was some great little phrases – “the kiss of Venus” was one of them. So I was loving that book and I was making up a song about that, but that was an instance of forcing myself to write. And I felt good after it. I thought, ‘Yeah that’s a pretty good little song.’ I haven’t had time to record it, but I will.Paul McCartney, from the Flaming Pie – Archive Collection book, 2020
[...] The kiss of Venus has got me on the go / She’s put a bullseye in the early morning glow [...]
