What song is being emulated in the bridge of McCartney's "Too Many People"?

Asked by buckyboy28 (4938points) August 21st, 2010

The part of the song that goes “That Was Your First Mistake, You Took Your Lucky Break And Broke It In Two”.

It sounds so familiar. Is there a song that is being copied?

It sounds a lot like the the similar falsetto part of “Baby, You’re a Rich Man” by the Beatles, but that might just be because it’s two near-contemporaneous instances of McCartney singing in falsetto. If you mean the exact melody, I do not know.

That is exactly it. I kept humming it in my head, but I probably would have never put two and two together.

Thank you so much!!!
