  2. Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite is nice to hear live.

    Paul’s media blitzing and promotion for this new cd is quite good. New cd is on one of the “charts” at number 8.

    It would be a blessing if Sir McCartney would do some smaller venues on this tour (New Jersey would be nice). “Hey, anybody out there” that really likes stadium concerts versus a normal size concert hall?

  3. Sounds like they sampled the tape loops from the original “Mr Kite”. Great show. Paul also did a second show later that day on BBC Radio 6. The “New” album is excellent.

  4. Thanks, bigO!

  5. Respect. many others wont step on stage without a 50 piece orchestra behind…
    Just appears a bit “unlively” to me - just me? Is it the voice? In analog times i would have guessed 1 % too slow. Hm.
    Nevertheless. And will check the NEW songs anyway.
    thank you, BigO.

  6. Mr. Kite sounds great. I was thinking the same thing about sampling the tape loops. I’m fine with it. They produce the circus feel of the song, and cannot be played live.

  7. Thanks Big O!
    Can’t get enough of Sir Macca in this new found happy productive phase!

  11. wow

    that felt good.I hadn’t said or really typed ‘whoopy shit’ since I was 7.

    By bonafide jerk on Oct 19, 2013

  12. no actually whoopy shit is sir p`s new song about a guy who thinks he has a relationship with a lot of rock stars he claims to have items from their garbage and plenty of pictures of himself with these stars but can`t seem to access them seems everytime he pulls some “treasure” out of maccas garbage bin he hollers whoopee! hence the title because sir paul says in the song that anything in the dustbin is shit.

  18. Paul McCartney’s “Queenie Eye” video is set to debut later this week, but HuffPost Entertainment is pleased to exclusively take you behind the scenes of the star-studded Abbey Road Studios shoot today.

    In a six-minute clip that features the likes of Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Jude Law, Kate Moss, and a host of other luminaries, McCartney reveals the inspiration behind the song. “Queenie Eye” is named after a game that was popular with children in Liverpool, where the Beatles formed and McCartney grew up. The single is off of McCartney’s album, “NEW,” which landed in stores on Oct. 15.

    There’s an inherent thrill to watching McCartney work in the studio where the Beatles’ first single, “Love Me Do,” was filmed, an excitement McCartney builds upon by sharing some of his most vivid memories from the period:

    So George Martin came down and he said, “Um, John, I wonder if you could just not sing that line and just do the harmonica thing.” He said, “One of the other guys can sing it.” And he looks at me and says, “Paul, you can sing it.” And I go, “Yeah, OK.” I’m thinking, “Oh my god,” and everything stops. I’m in Abbey Road, first time ever, and I’ve got to take this lead vocal line, and I know that all the guys back in Liverpool in all the other groups are going to kill me, because it’s not my line. It’s John’s line. So, I can still hear, [in rough voice] “Love me do-oo–o,” because I’m standing right here, terrified out my wits, trying to pretend I’m not. So, you know, the stories go out from there…

    “To have a collection of masterpieces under your belt, and the fact that he has been doing it for as long as he’s been doing it with the passion that he has for it? It’s always new,” Depp said. “It’s always new for him. He still gets excited about it, he’s still curious. There’s one. There’s only one of him.”

  19. after i posted ‘they never left’ the next posting isnt mine.

    the long posting above isnt something i would have posted. it isnt of interest to me so i had no interest and didnt think anyone here would either. i saw it a couple of days ago and decided not to include it. i get 100s of similar stories and news articles relating to film tv and music etc every day and i go thru them and decide what i think might be of interest to others on here and what wouldnt. based on that i will share or not. videos of songs that are just lipsynched arent important to me. now if the audio of the video is different then i am interested. which of course doesnt mean sound effects.

    i have the 1min9sec clip with trailer talking walking over it.. of the new u2 song. the full clip is longer but i only cared about the u2 participation of the audio track so i made an mp3 of the portion i cared about. i dont normally care about something so short or small but this is the first u2 recording in 3 yrs so i wanted something.

    while i am in my collecting mode i went off on a soundtrack binge recently and obtained some 2-300 soundtracks. many are complete sessions and others are extended scores full original soundtracks etc. i love this sort of thing.
    the new batman arkham origins game sndtrck is out and its 64mins long. while dl’ing that i decided that i wanted the previous 2 that had come out. they were 91mins and 204mins. the quality of this music is incredible. normally i wouldnt care about games or their soundtracks but some of them are different.
    a different composer did this new one than the previous 2. i have the super deluxe extended versions of the batman film scores. and im a fanatic on some of these composers. i have an absolute massive collection of tangerine dream and john williams and hans zimmer for example.

    that being said.. if unreleased recording sessions of any epic motion pictures come along that might interest others as well as myself i for one think that there is much interest for such things.
    a recorded score for a film that was scrapped and then later replaced with someone elses is excellent material for collectors.
    trevor rabin has dome a small shitload of these sndtrks. i have i think 8 or 9 now.
    vangelis is known for his. tangerine dream for theirs. i am sure brian may did one or two. we know clapton did a few. page did 2. floyd did a few.

  20. The whole even was broadcasted on BBC red button last night, so maybe someone can offer the video?

    By Michael Abramson on Nov 9, 2013

  21. michael - u wont find video on here. try tube7. they often offer such things there. if u want to watch videos of paul.. there are many many 100s if not 1000s of his performances on youtube and u can get a downloader that will help u save the clips from there to your own computer where u can own them forever. hopefully before they ever yank em like they are wont to do. daily motion has a lot of great videos too and there are programs for that site too. many videos are there that u will never find on youtube.
