Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney has revealed that the hidden meaning behind his album title Memory Almost Full is an anagram in dedication to his first wife Linda, although he claims that the anagram was unintentional. The singer said that the title of his latest album could be rearranged to spell out 'For my soulmate, LLM', if his late wife's full name Linda Louise McCartney was used.

McCartney said that he had realised the anagram until his daughter introduced him to it. "It was only when my eldest daughter said to me, 'Oh Dad, that's lovely.' I had no idea what she was talking about, until she explained. I said: 'Oh my goodness, that's so weird', and she said: 'What's even weirder is that you didn't realise,'" Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

"I found out about it on the anniversary of her passing. Very weird," he added. Linda died in April 1998, aged 56, after losing her battle with breast cancer.
