"Too Many People" is a song by Paul McCartney from his 1971 album Ram. It was dedicated to John Lennon a former member of The Beatles. The song is one of several instances of "musical sniping" among the four Beatles after the band broke up. Others include McCartney's "3 Legs," Lennon's "How Do You Sleep?," and George Harrison's "Wah-wah." The song's lyric has something to do with Lennon's lucky break.
That was your first mistake
You took your lucky break and broke it in two
Now what can be done for you?
You broke it in two McCartney sings falsetto during the chorus. Hugh McCracken's guitar solo between the second chorus and third verse is played in one piece while his outro-solo is accompanied by a drum stick on the side of a floor tom.
