It's Not True from Press to Play


Its Not True paulmccartney.filminspector.com



"It's Not True" is a track from Paul McCartney's "Press to Play" that also was the B side for the "Press to Play" single. The single was a minor hit for Paul, hitting No. 21 in the United States and No. 25 in the United Kingdom. Two versions are included here for your delectation, one the final cut above, the other a rough cut demo version that is sort of a stripped-down mirror of the album track.

"It's Not True" isn't one of my favorite McCartney recordings. It is repetitive and long at 5:35, a deadly combination. After a few minutes you may be prone to go, "Okay already, I believe you, it's not true, shut up already." However, "It's Not True" is nicely done anyway and has a nice sax part which isn't something Paul incorporates in his songs very often. It was recorded at Hog Hill Studio, Rye, the United Kingdom in March/May 1985 and released in 1986 (and reissued in 1993). "It's Not True" apparently has appeared only on its original album and various bootlegs and never been performed in concert. So, we may assume from those two facts that Paul considers "It's Not True" to be mediocre album filler without much popularity. However, inevitably, you will find someone who just loves it, so it is worth a listen - at least once.

It's not true
It's not true
It's not true

Some people say she's a bad girl
Some people think she's a fool
Some people tell me she's no good
But I'm telling you, "It's not true, it's not true, it's not true"

They say that my girl's a mad girl
No saying what she might do
Some people tell me she's crazy
But I'm telling you, "It's not true, it's not true, it's not true"

It's not true
Ooh, ooh, ooh, they've been talking to the fellas
Ooh, ooh, ooh, have they never heard of jealousy?
Ooh, ooh, ooh, if she helps me write the melody
I'll let the words take care of themselves

It's not true, it's not true, it's not true

It's not true
Ooh, ooh, ooh, they've been talking to the fellas
Ooh, ooh, ooh, have they never heard of jealousy?
Ooh, ooh, ooh, if she helps me make the memories
I'll let the words take care of themselves

Some people say she's a loser
Some people tell me that she's through
Some people say I don't love her
But I'm telling you, "It's not true, it's not true, it's not true
What they're saying about her isn't true"

Don't you know it isn't true?
Oh no, no, no, no
Ooh, it isn't
Oh, it's not true

It's not true
It's not true
It's not true
