      Original post

      What songs would you like to hear Paul cover?
      Great Balls of Fire, So Far Away From Me (Dire Straits), Let it Grow by Eric Clapton, Lay Down Sally by Clapton, A Whiter Shade of Pale, Beast of Burden by the Stones (LOL), Mexico by James Taylor, In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel, We'll Be Together Tonite by Sting, Fix You and Mellow by Coldplay, Finer Things by Stevie Windwood, for starters. Would like him to cover some female music like River by Joni Mitchell, Rolling in the Deep by Adele, that song by the All About the Base singer that goes "when I am with you there's no place I'd rather be"

        It kind of seems like those people should be covering his songs, not the other way around.

          Those are just some I'd like to hear him sing, because I like those songs and wonder what his take on them would sound like, and I can imagine him singing them, "hear" them in my head and it's fun and pleasing to me.
          And as if they might suit him. He has done covers before, of course.

            He can sing any song he wants. I won't complain.

              Maybe it could have been fun to hear him play "Rock This Town" or "Stray Cat Strut" by Stray Cats. Or just a Brian Setzer song.

              McCartney has a rockabilly in his musical hips but he chooses mostly songs from the 50's when he plays rock & roll.

              Found the official video for "Rock This Town" on youtube

              And hey, "Stray Cat Strut". Maybe he can cover Setzer's hair too.

              Ay, here I found the official video for the big band retro swing of The Brian Setzer Orchestra - Jump Jive An' Wail. Rather fun Music.

                In his prime "Where's the Orchestra?" Or "Through the Long Night" by Billy Joel both of those songs are very McCartneyesque

                  I'd love to see him do Elvis Costello's "Let Him Dangle."

                    Songs I would like Paul to cover?

                    Anything from his OWN catalogue from 1978 onwards!!!

                      Veronica.

                        Abracadabra - Steve Miller Band

                          Hendrix Ibsen:Maybe it could have been fun to hear him play "Rock This Town" or "Stray Cat Strut" by Stray Cats. Or just a Brian Setzer song.

                          I agree totally. I have always said there is nobody better IMO covering 50's music than Mr. McCartney.

                            Absolutely, yes!

                            Interesting question, though, because I can't think of anything past the '70s by other artists that he has ever covered. Am I wrong? Maybe the newest song is Ian Dury's "(I'm Partial To Your) Abracadabra" from 1977?

                              HaileyMcComet:It kind of seems like those people should be covering his songs, not the other way around.

                                Nights in white satin

                                  Procol Harum's Whiter Shade of Pale would be cool to hear him do. I remember reading he and Linda really liked that one and it was "their song". Also love to hear his take on some of Bob Dylan's classics from the '60's. Going even further back, work up some of Elvis' songs he never did before.

                                    Just like heaven by the cure

                                      Yes, I also think he is good on rock with roll. And 50s rock & roll is good fun. In the 70s it was more like sex, drugs and rock & roll, in the 90s disappeared roll and one was left with rock. I'm fond of the original rock & roll and rockabilly style myself. The music swings and you just have to tap your feet and sing along.

                                        Yes, rockabilly is always cool

                                          Helen Wheels is a good one by Wings...was it?

                                            I will name just two songs.

                                            -Hallelujah
                                            -Evil Woman from ELO
