Two of Us
Two of Us is a Paul McCartney song. (Lennon said in a 1980 interview that he wrote it, but was mistaken.) The song was written in 1968, recorded in 1969 and mixed in 1970. It is sung as a duet by Paul and John. Paul has confirmed that it was written for Linda Eastman, whom he would marry. The two sang into the same mike (as shown on the Let It Be film). In the middle of the song there are references that seem to be about each of them and their relationship in the Beatles, which was about to come to an end, and they both knew it.
The recording came out as the first track on the Let It Be album. A take has been made available on Anthology 3, and a re-mixed version was released on Let It Be . . . Naked.
The Two of Us track starts with Lennon saying, "I Dig a Pygmy, by Charles Hawtrey and the Deaf Aids... Phase One, in which Doris gets her oats!" Spector left this adlib in the mix for both the album and the film. ("Deaf Aids" was a Beatles code name for their guitar amps.)
