I agree with this. I honestly forgot about that song.
Paul pretending to make an angry face at the beginning of this clip is funny and unconvincing. But that's why I love him: most of his music is joyful.
I'm wish that I could permanently forget about that song. ...
I did until you just reminded me.
What's the issue with NEW on this thread?
Everytime I check back there seems to be another song picked from NEW for criticism and agreed disliking - first Scared, then Early Days, then I Can Bet, then Save Us, now Everybody Out There - honestly what's wrong with these songs?! I bloody love NEW - I would take it over Band on the Run anyday! Everybody Out There may be the weakest on the album (I disagree - in fact I believe a slower acoustic version would have sat good and proper on Flaming Pie) but that's only because it's shadowed and perhaps pales in comparison to Hosanna, On My Way to Work, Looking at Her and New - or are they all bad songs as well!
It's a great album with great songs. Your opinion on it is spot on. To me it's in my top 5 McCartney albums.
New was pretty good but it's not new anymore. I'm waiting for a new album.
Don't let it get you down. If you believe in NEW, then that's all that counts.
Take it from me. The amount of abuse that "Bip Bop" gets here would drive a person crazy. But it doesn't faze me one iota (as I'm already crazy).
I like Bip-Bop ☺
Your check is in the mail ...
I don't think Paul is pretending to make an angry face, he's just making a face, to the music, like millions of other musicians do as they are playing.
The Rockshow version is my favorite though, that scream at the end....ugh, the chills.
I don't know what photo they are talking about, but here's one in which a drunken Paul asked Ringo to marry him, and Richie said "yes":
I like New a lot. Just 5hink that EOT is one of the weaker songs.
Did I miss the news about Paul's new album??
I sure wouldn't elevate it above Band in the Run but it's a good album. And Everybody Out There, in my opinion, is a good song. In fact, I'm listening to it this very minute (after watching that Soily video).
24 more days.
Damn! I just got it!
Did you need a calculator though?
I would agree. The version I listen to is the one I burned, to include all the bonus tracks. It's such a varied, and fun album. I personally don't have any problem with the songs being ridiculed.
Look at my list again, I definitely included Soily, and I like all versions, but my favorite is the one from Wings Over America!
The night I saw Wings and they performed it for the final encore with the lasers, I can't even begin to tell you the thrill that went thru the crowd! I don't think anyone had seen lasers like that before and on top of all that a hot hard rocking song! It's a night I will never ever forget!
And a calendar!
Hope Ringo got to keep the ring.
Whaaaaat?! Well, if it's ready to go, let's have it then- the only other Deluxe Archive edition besides McCartney II I'd actually go out and buy!
Ahem...as someone who's been playing guitar, bass and drums (and now keyboards!) for over twenty five years and have my own home studio, I think I know a little bit about production and a sh-tload about rock and roll!
"Early Days" was my favourite song on New, which is why I'd want Paul to do something in the solo acoustic, singer/songwriter vein. Hell, as far as I'm concerned "Yesterday" didn't need a bloody string quartet!
Mr Vanderbilt is 100% correct, @maccafan. Hey, if you want Paul to make Driving Rain II, maccafan, that's fine and dandy- personally I'd like to take him out of his comfort zone a bit and make him do something he's never really done before for an entire album. I think Driving Rain is one of Paul's worst albums- it's basically the Wild Life aesthetic for the new Millenium and was about just as successful as Wild Life was IMO- which is to say, not very successful at all.
