Though McCartney has since gone on to state that he is now embarrassed about this record, it continues to receive substantial airplay every year. Including royalties from cover versions, it is estimated that Paul McCartney makes $400,000 per year from this song, which puts its cumulative earnings for this song at near $15 million.
“I don’t like the idea that people who aren’t adolescents make records. Adolescents make the best records. Except for Paul Simon. Except for Graceland. He’s hit a new plateau there, but he’s writing to his own age group. Graceland is something new.” - Joe Strummer interviewed by Richard Cromelin for the Los Angeles Times on January 31, 1988
