Paul McCartney, like most people, has a favorite Beatles song, and it’s a surprising one.

In a new appearance on The Zane Lowe Show, Sir Paul says the Beatles song he’s listened to the most is “Let It Be,” but his favorite is “You Know My Name (Look Up the Number),” which is the b-side to “Let It Be.”

Macca calls the song “a zany, zany little B-side that nobody knows, but we had such fun making it.”

“It’s like a little comedy record. And I just remember the joy of making it,” said McCartney. “…But there’s a lot of songs that I love of the Beatles. I think ‘Strawberry Fields’ is a great song; I think ‘Hey Jude’ worked out great. I’ve got a lot of favorite songs. ‘Blackbird’ I love. ‘Eleanor Rigby’ I love.”

McCartney released his latest solo album McCartney III last week. Fans can stream/download the album here, while physical copies are available at Shop.PaulMcCartney.com.
