When Paul  described the themes of his debut album McCartney 50 years ago, he said: "Home, Family, Love". With Mother’s Day celebrated by many across the world in May and Father’s Day around the corner in June, we wanted to make this month’s playlist a Family affair.

This month’s 'Sticking Out of My Back Pocket' playlist includes 'Walking in the Park with Eloise' a song originally composed by Paul’s father Jim McCartney. From Auntie Jin to Uncle Albert, guitar solos by his son James on 'Heaven On A Sunday', and lyrics written for a young Mary McCartney. Paul’s music has always been influenced by those nearest to him—his family.
