      Paul, Elton John and Julian Lennon were interviewed by Sean Lennon for a BBC radio 2 programme broadcast over the weekend in honour of John's 80th birthday. It includes a clip of Paul singing a never before heard Lennon-McCartney composition called, "Just for Fun".

          The interview with Sean and Paul is heartwarming. They discuss Sean's grandmother Julia, Paul's favorite John song, and Paul's influence on John and John's influence on Paul. Sean truly knows the Beatles music and Paul's role in his father's songwriting during and after the Beatles. A wonderful listen in these difficult times.

            I listened earlier today and loved it as well! ❤️ I knew Paul was going to say (SPOILER ALERT!) Beautiful Boy and could tell Sean was quite touched by that.

              I enjoyed the interview too, especially Paul's telling of how he first saw John and his memories of John's mother Julia. The choice of 'Beautiful Boy' was pretty obvious as it was one of Paul's choices when he appeared on the 'Desert Island Discs' radio show years ago, ....1982 I think without looking it up. And John hasn't written any new songs since. 

                Anyone talking about this?
