When Sir Paul met the Boss
isn’t simply getting where Lennon was 20 years before
the icing on the cake.
3 hours of music in the original keys
You simply can’t see him enough
professional, a little bland and careful
ain’t what it used to be
the two men singing together seemed like shared grief
mistakes spontaneity for inspiration
the only hits here are Pepper and Divide
a minor work by a major artist.
a new paradigm
Part two in the lowest point of his career
“I didn’t mean it’s a drag, I meant it’s a draaaaaagggg.”
Putin likes the Beatles, his favorite Beatle is Paul
an experimental pop album that loses its nerve
Even punk rock couldn’t stop em
Wings were a fascist democracy
In his deepest sorrow, Paul sees a future
it brought the home cooking of a stadium show home to you
Not kind, not caring, but carefree
What a great Beatles album might sound like if the Beatles had never been invented
Paul did what he chose to
It was a valentine to domesticity
McCartney should have given the revisionism a rest
In the completion McCartney is made whole again.
It’s McCartney, he is performing his songs, what’s not to like?
Gives services like YouTube “safe harbor” from copyright
The greatest melodist since Gershwin
“Be bigger than The Beatles, but don’t say it.”
“I took to a wee dram,” he admitted.
A no nonsense instrumental segued version, that had the audience delighted.
First, the major question, how much will this monster concert cost?
Tickets for all newly-added shows go on sale Friday, April 22 at 10 AM
He is still ambitious as his recent collaboration with Youth proved
Negative emotions are stronger than positive ones
‘How VIP do we gotta get?’
As for Bernie Sanders, does it even matter what kind of music he likes?
McCartney is great and I see him whenever he is in town but he could be doing more
The Shins, with their cover of Paul McCartney’s ‘Wonderful Christmastime’, are now number one, pushing poor Mariah to number two.
I figured I’d take a closer look at solo Paul. I passed on the live albums becomes, come on it’s McCartney, also passed on classical stuff and The Fireman two albums, just because I can’t read classical well enough and the Youth produced albums were somewhat vanity products
Lonesome Town – Paul McCartney – The Ricky Nelson cover is given the saddest take imaginable, from the first album after Linda’s death and it is a track with nowhere to go, a heartache of oneness and mourning, it is one of McCartney’s greatest achievements – A+
When Bruce Springsteen performs a three hour set we get 30 songs, when Paul McCartney does the same length set we get 25% more as last nights truly epic 41 song set at London’s 02 proves unhesitatingly. Paul is the Ramones of 60s rockers!
I don’t know if they will ever make up,’ continued McCartney. ‘It would be good because I think everyone likes brothers to like each other — and make up. It’s a pity because they are very good together. Like many brothers, they are crazy. But it would be nice if they got together.”
I say it here and I’ve said it often, when it comes to big musical stars you lose nothing when you tell the truth. If you didn’t write that Surfer Blood’s Python was a bummer, what could I say about 1000 Palms, for you to trust me that it is a goodie. I’ve seen McCartney a couple of times since this show, but this one was the masterpiece
‘My mum came to me in a dream when she’d died years previously. I was in a bit of a state – it was the Sixties and I was overdoing it. In the dream she said, ‘Don’t worry it’s all going to be fine, just let it be.’ And I woke up and thought, ‘Woah’ and wrote the song.’ And this moving story really inspired Kanye, who said, ‘I’m going to write a song with my mum.’ Macca sat at the piano and they wrote ‘Only One’.
One of the saddest days in the year for me are Father’s Day, it is the one where it becomes clear that I have no children and nieces and nephew aren’t a substitute. It is a day dreamy concern (I don’t like the responsibility of a woman or a cat so it would be a form of hell…) but when you hear songs like this it triggers something. Less the urge to continue the Iman line and much more the urge to be loved
‘We’re really excited to say the file is now available to any fan who wishes to try making their own!’ They announced. ‘If you’d like to get your own 3D Paul printed off, you have two options: either find a local or online printing company who can make it for you; or, if you have access to a 3D printer, you can try printing your own!
