"Agree 100% Yankeefan. My biggest disappointment with the Got Back tour was that, for the most part, Paul totally ignored McCartney 3. Just blows my mind that he would ignore his latest well received album. Where was the Paul from 1976 or even 1989 when he opened a new tour with a non-Beatles song. Find My Way would have been a great opener. So if some in the audience didn't know it...So What? Another missed opportunity! And for that matter, why not do 3-4 songs from McCartney 3 with the full band (including Paul's new "horn" section). That alone would have made McCartney 3 songs on the tour sound a little different than his studio versions."
Those tours Paul cared about being considered a "relevant" artist and said in interview that was why he was opening concert with "Figure Of Eight". Fast forward and all Paul cares about is satisfying the "first timers" and casual Beatle fans. Mind boggling that he did not try and promote "McCartney III" live especially with it being critically acclaimed. His team is so clueless they don't even try to sell "McCartney III" CD's at his shows -smh !!
"After this tour, my biggest question is...what is Paul's "love affair" with "Fuh You"? Of all the songs on Paul's "Got Back" Setlist, "Fuh You" would have been the first song in my opinion to replace. It's not that "Fuh You" was a hit. At least "Come On to Me" made the charts and did pretty well."
Simple answer was he did not want to try and rehearse different "Egypt Station" song. Like you, I dislike the song and IMO it makes Paul look like and damn old fool. Try talking or singing something "sexual" in front of your grown children and watch their reaction -lol. That is how I feel when I hear Paul sing "Come On To Me" or "Fuh You".
I totally agree that it's crazy he doesn't play more songs from McCartney 3, or from any of his newer albums really. So many great songs to choose from.
As for Fuh You, it's catchy and modern sounding so it's probably more likely to pique the curiosity of someone who doesn't know much about his music. It's not my favorite song, but I do like it (though I really dislike the title and wish it was "For You").
Good Ole Justin Trudeau has decided to call another election. With 2 years to go. Hmmm....with Pandemic, the shaky economy, wildfires everywhere I think he's crazy. Among other things. This is where I actually like the American way where unless he/she is impeached, the President must serve out his whole term. And not play politics because he happens to think he'll win if he goes earlier. What a collosal wast of money. Not to mention risk of virus surge as people go out to vote when they actually didn't HAVE to.
I'm not sure any system is more insane than the U.S. Electoral College.
Although Paul suggested that he wouldn't tour the UK until next year in the interview with ZDF, we still can't forget about the Telegraph interview just a few weeks before that in which he stated (for those who don't remember): "We've only got planned out the Japanese dates at the moment and we haven't got anything planned after that... but I always like to finish the year in the UK. This is a new show so I'd love to show people ? I like to show off." http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/music-news/10273050/Paul-McCartney-posts-New-single-online.html Hopefully, there might still be a chance of the UK Christmas shows happening
How's it going fellow Beatles fanatics! I hope all is well with all of you. I hope all of you have a good drink for me! Unfortunately, I quit drinking! It was something I needed to do. When I drank here on this thread, I kid you not, I REALLY drank like that! I even used to buy rounds for people and vice versa when I co-owned a bar with a buddy a few months ago! I hope all of you are still having fun, take care!
Good man! I quit about a year and a half ago. I only drink occasionally now. A friend gave me a bottle of Barefoot wine at Christmas. It was very good! Hope everyone has a Nice St. Patty's Day!!!
Hi SurSteven! How are you? I hope all is well with you and your family. Thanks SurSteven, I really needed to quit drinking. it was for my own good! I'm glad you quit also, I actually feel better since I quit! Take care my friend.
Well as long as we’re admitting, I admit that I drank in the bar here, a lot more heavily than I did anywhere else. It was so low calorie, I couldn’t resist. I did have a tequila for my sisters birthday, however, I have cut back on the few drinks that I used to have. Salute to all and much support to you Jl4761
Its okay if you drink one tequila, just don't swallow the worm!
Brushing off the cobwebs from this thread. Topic title updated. So, Mr. Oliver. You still around? What do you make of Real Madrid under Zizou? You must be smiling, I imagine. Bar?a under Lucho started well in 2015 but this past season was a train wreck. The midfield needs work with Iniesta fading. Valverde is alright but I was hoping for a surprise pick, like Oscar Garcia who's doing good things with RB Salzburg. One year away from the World Cup. Spain starting to look formidable again. And look out for Argentina with Sampaoli now leading them. Germany always show up at tournaments but the favorite for me must be Brazil with France a close second.
Just wondering if anyone had recently experienced some weird stuff on here?
Recently, when I was posting something on here and all of sudden, it looked like a different screen I was seeing my post in. Just wondering if anyone else experienced this type of thing as well? Things were jumping around and I couldn't post.
^Hope SurSteven and Paulfan11's cataracts/Lasik surgery healed well, and everyone is seeing better than ever!!!
Just got an update from SurSteven. He was working on one of his projects and will be going for his cataract surgery shortly.
I told him I would let everyone know. He sends his hellos to everyone!
Was so glad to hear he is OK and am sending prayers his way for a quick recovery
Very happy to hear he is still kickin!!! Please tell him to hurry back!
