    I’ll throw my horse into the race....

    Maybe my favorite bonus track/non album should have been on the album song....

    Mine too, that’s enough to piss me off. Why So Blue got thrown aside while Nod Your Head made it through. Fuh that..;)

    Heck...I would prefer either instumenal, "In Private" and "222", to "Nod Your Head"...or "Gratitude", for that matter.

    I’m woefully uneducated on the Off the Ground period, so I didn’t have a horse in that off topic race.

    But now you guys are speaking my language. Those bonus disc songs from MAF are incredible, and I agree that you’ve picked the 2 weakest album tracks that they should have replaced.

    The so-called MAF "suite" was a huge disappointment to me as the songs didn't really crossfade with each other nor did they have anything in common. It was kinda like all he did was take out the silence between those tracks. I'm hoping this is a true "suite" like the Red Rose Speedway or Abbey Road medleys were.

    It's even got great lyrics:

    "Why So Blue"

    Staring from a cardboard castle
    Down and out
    One of life's young students
    Finds out what it's all about
    Paper flutters
    Angry taxy drivers shout

    From the pages of a paper
    Candles shine
    On a perfect table
    Laid for two who love to dine
    They suggest a highly recommended wine
    Once again the same old line

    Why so sad
    My fine young friend
    Why so blue

    Weary carriage horses stand in single file
    Someone at a crowded bus stop
    Wears a friendly smile
    Touching nerves that
    No one's heard from in a while
    Papers from the same old file

    Why so sad
    My fine young friend
    Why so blue

    Sometimes
    When eyes meet you know
    They have to meet again
    Sometimes
    Birds of a feather
    Got to fly together

    From a dingy attic window
    Candles shine
    On a perfect table
    Laid for two who love to dine
    Now they drink the
    Highly recommended wine
    Free at last and feeling fine

    I'm so glad
    My fine young friend
    Glad for you

    I'm so glad
    My fine young friend
    Glad for you

    You used to be so blue, you used to be so blue
    Why so blue"

    I'm sensing a belated groundswell of @Sean Murdock fan euphoria for all the various B sides from Paul's albums.
    :D

    Sean, you might want to copyright the expression fan euphoria, because I'm going to try to work it into every post I make from now on. :p ;)

    "Why So Blue" is my favorite track on the Memory Almost Full deluxe... How it didn't make the cut is beyond me!

    And, along with "Why so blue" and all the Off the ground b-sides you guys mentioned, I bring to you "Comfort of love", another song that should have been more than a b-side.

    Good B-Sides are good but best B-Sides are best...

     
  16. This was released as part of a charity project, but was recorded during the Flaming Pie sessions.

    It’s one of my all time favorite Macca songs , from any era, would not mind having it included on any Macca album, be it a new one or part of a Macca Project Box.

    WHOLE LIFE

    Being serious for a moment, I hope we all aren't placing unrealistic expectations on this album.

    We are all so jazzed about it that I hope we aren't setting ourselves up for a big letdown .

    I try not to have to much expectations.. If the album will have a few great Macca-moments that makes me smile Im fine with that.
    If it s a real masterpiece-well it would be great but I really don t think so
    Hopefully it will be good enough
    The lyrics of Happy with you and the gorgeous cover made me a bit more hopeful
    We ll see

    I try not to have that high of expectations either but this thread and the posts in it make it hard to keep a balanced perspective .

    I'm about as bad as everyone else of course but I don't obsess over trying to find endless "clues"about the release or dying that we don't have a tracklist yet, etc.


    The problem is, I really enjoy the thread but visiting this thread is kind of like a recovering alcoholic going to a bar with his old, still drinking buddies .
    In the long run, it might not be the best idea. :D

    I generally think it s fun. Crazy but fun. Apart from visiting this thread I don t spend any times lookin for clues,news or anything.
    In this case the road might be as much dun than the goal
    After all it s just an album.
    The two songs prewiewed gives me hope both that the songs will be all right and the production/ arrangements to
    This Fuh you song might be a crucial thing. I expect both a more modern production and some naughty lyrics. Im fine with that-Ryan Tedder is a very gifted man but in all honesty there are folks here who think all new music(defined from 1980) and onwards sucks.
    My oldest son works professionally within the Hip hop field and I know they work and sweat in the studio just like any other to get things right.
    Lookin back at the Beatles I guess we can be happy Paul always have been so open minded about trying new things in the studio.
    So as long as it s a catchy song I don t mind some modern sounds and beats

    Have you heard the faster version of Winedark Open Sea he used to do at soundchecks? I think I prefer it to the original.

    As a huge hip hop fan this intrigues me, is he working with any big American names?
