Playlist: Pastoral Paul - a compilation of mostly acoustic, nature-inspired songs by Paul McCartney

Here's my first stab at a Beatles-focused Spotify playlist: Pastoral Paul.

Dating back to songs like "Blackbird" and "Mother Nature's Son," Paul has a history of writing stripped-down acoustic guitar tunes that draw on nature and folk-music as inspiration.

This is a selection of some of my favorites, made up of solo tracks and songs recorded with Wings and by the Beatles.
