A long time ago, someone gave me remixes that Paul did (or Paul hired someone to do) for his solo songs or Wings songs. These songs included "Coming Up", "No More Lonely Nights", "Temporary Secretary", "Goodnight Tonight", "Silly Love Songs", "Let Em In", "With A Little Luck" and "Listen To What The Man Said". There are 3 different mixes for "Coming Up" and "Silly Love Songs" and 2 different remixes for "Goodnight Tonight". The rest of the songs have only 1 remix. "Goodnight Tonight" even had an extra verse! Don't get too cold for love Don't pass it by Don't grow too old for love It's a feeling that may never end I was told that these remixes were included as part of a press kit for McCartney II. Can anyone give me any more information about these remixes? Who did them? Was it Paul himself? Did he work with anyone else? Was there ever an official title for the compilation? Thanks for any information you can provide!

RE: The Original Paul McCartney Picture Thread
I loved all the wedding photos too. Only recently had I seen any in color. I also love the one with Heather sucking her thumb sleeping curled up next to Paul.
Aww, I've never seen that one. Do you happen to have it?
RE: Remembering Linda
My heart goes out to her family today & every day... Paul's Yellow Linda
That's pretty. Was yellow Linda's favorite color? I remember hearing that Linda died and thinking "it's sad but I don't understand why the news is making such a big deal about this. She was just his wife." But now I know better. Based on what I've read, she seemed like a genuinely kind person. RIP Linda.
RE: The Nancy Shevell Appreciation Thread
There's nothing worth defending about pathological liars. What's telling is that the people around Paul all like and respect Nancy. Paul's band likes her. His kids like her. Ringo and Yoko like her. Nobody's perfect but Nancy clearly seems in the relationship for the right reasons.
When Ringo, your friend of almost 50 years, doesn't like your wife, you know there's something wrong.
RE: The Original Paul McCartney Picture Thread
I know this is from backstage at Jimmy Fallon but I'd really like to know why this photo exists....or how this conversation started. http://img171.imageshack.us/img171/5895/jimmyfallonpaul.jpg
RE: BE PART OF A BOOK OF FAN MESSAGES, TO BE SENT TO PAUL.
Sarah actually met Paul at a soundcheck this past summer and gave him the book. There are photos of this meeting all over her facebook and on the book's facebook website. It pays to trust people every once in a while.
Do you think that Paul actually read it? Sometimes, I think he just throws that stuff out.
RE: Any Duran Duran fans?
I saw these guys in concert not too long ago at Madison Square Garden and they are still amazing. Their most recent album, All You Need is Now, is terrific. Produced by Mark Ronson..."Girl Panic!" is just plain fun, "Before the Rain" is haunting and dramatic and a perfect album closer(and believe it or not, a great concert opener), "The Man Who Stole a Leopard" is a twisted tale indeed. And, in a move that would make many of us McCartney fans jealous, they play about 5 or 6 NEW album songs in concert and the new songs generally get a good response--not like the old ones of course but that's natural, they are new(but of course just to show that fans are never happy, just like McCartney fans complain about the setlist, you see on message boards fans complaining about the setlist LOL--why don't they play more b-sides, too many hits lol, I think we fans should just admit we're never happy and let it go. PS: Did you ever hear about how they met Paul McCartney in the studio when they were recording the Rio album and he was recording, I guess, Pipes of Peace(?)--it was George Martin's Air Studios--apparently Heather McCartney met them first(and asked them not to mention how they knew her, as she'd apparently met them whilst hanging with punk rockers her mom and dad didn't exactly love her hanging around with)--- and one day she was like "Would you like to meet my dad" so Paul came in and said he was sure that one song(Rio) he'd heard them playing had HIT written all over it.
SO glad that someone else feels the same way! I listened to the live stream of Coachella last year. There wasn't anyone on that I really wanted to see, so I figured that I would just listen to them while I waited for Kanye's performance to start (whcih ended up being just eh). They were AMAZING. I had a friend who was there and, independently, said that she just went to see Duran Duran because there wasn't anyone else she wanted to see and they blew her away. I thought "Girl Panic" was an 80s song of theirs that I had never heard. I really like the instrumentals and "The Man Who Stole a Leopard". I do love their choice of newsreader--apparently, the woman who reads the story is Nina Hossain, their favorite newsreader. I'm not surprised that Mark Ronson produced their newest album. He LOVES them and constantly talks about how important they were to him, musically speaking. The video for it is fun, too:Their tribute to John Barry at Coachella was fabulous, too. I couldn't believe that Simon Le Bon sounded JUST like the records. I have told some people that I'm getting more into Duran Duran and they give me a look of doubt, but I tell them that they should give them an honest chance. I didn't know that fact about Rio. I also find it funny that Linda felt the same way about the punk rock scene that her father felt about the rock scene.
