I know there was a thread awhile back about miss-hearing the lyrics to a song, but I can't find it. If a mod can, feel free to merge this post. Led Zeppelin Stairway To Heaven" "And every wino down the road" Correct: "And as we wind on down the road"
I had one this morning where I was at a Paul concert in the front row (he looked much younger though) and he was on the same level as the audience (no high stage) and he started walking towards me and took my hand. I eventually tried to let go, but he wouldn't let me (yeah right!) He said "I'm doing that"and laughed and I said "I've waited over 50 years for this!" It was real vivid--I even remember seeing sweat beads on his forehead. He had on a black suit and tie and of course looked handsome as hell!
I don't know why Paul doesn't have his paintings in museums! This is one of my favs Robot and Star Ancient Connections (does anyone think the front figure looks like G. Martin?) Egypt Station This was on a curtain at one of Paul's shows Twin Freaks This is another fav of mine Magritte's Ruler Another fav of mine, I think Linda may have bought him that https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/94/32/9d/94329d346fc45a2531e3dad646fa2629.jpg Boxer Lips another fav
It's also a beautifully produced track too. I'm not a massive fan of the egg shell seas/in excelsis word-play but it does carry on the Catholic connection of Biker Like an Icon as well as the punning thing too and he just about gets away with it. wink
Were the calendars, Linda's calendars? I have a couple of hers, I'd like to get some others. There is one photo of hers, a fence next to a tree with a dew covered spiderweb. Does anyone know if this was ever for sale, or the name of it, so I could put it in my search on Ebay wish list
It is indeed a terrible song. (And perhaps Brian Wilson's weakest solo album). They aught to tackle something much more "wacky". How about Paul gives Brian the "Men From Halifax" track from "Cold Cuts", to finish off? If Brian got into his "Smile" mode the result could be fascinating.
Just more reasons why McCartney II is such a cool album. I'd love to hear "One of These Days" live.
McCartney II is a highly underrated album indeed!
I once wrote an Amazon review about how strong the LP actually is. It has a sound that is overall very cohesive. More so than other albums. Macca is checking his machine, having fun, and yet totally involved and focused throughout.
Just shows Macca is willing to experiment and take chances. No nonsense production, it's a fairly honest album as well.
The deluxe/expanded edition has even more gems.
Also, does any think that the melody from Cyndi Lauper's Girl's Just Want To Have Fun, was a melody swipe from Frozen Jap, about the 0:47+ ?
