The Beatles legend loves to “escape” by writing new lyrics and often finds the best place to explore his ideas is in the bathroom or a cupboard, reports As quoted by McCartney:

(Songwriting) is a solitary process but that’s nice. The rest of the day isn’t solitary. I’m doing interviews or taking my girl to school or doing some filming.

And you escape into a world of your own thoughts.
