SatanHimself said

meanmistermustard said Paul made #21 in the Billboard Rich List, reports Examiner, with $13,769,479.16. Taylor Swift was #1 with a quiet eye-blowing $39,699,575.60 I presume its for the year 2013 but if it was $13m for the tour and the rest from sales of New then this does not include royalties from his back catalogue as surely he made more than a $1m thru the Beatles and his solo work in a year. Anyone know? Oh, and who is Kenny Chesney (#2)? Only singer i know with Chesney in the name is Chesney Hawkes (that two hit wonder) - he also starred in a film called Buddy's Song which was rather good, or was that the book i'm thinking of?ahdn_paul_01

Kenny Chesney is an awesome country music singer. He grew up in East Tennessee, wetsroosa's neck of the woods. 

 

-------

For us living outside of America, we can't really relate to country artists like Kenny Chesney.  His stuff comes across as Christian Republican pro-U.S. propaganda.  Very manufactured Walmart-brand corporate social engineering, more than organic singer-songwriter stuff.

No offense meant to you personally.  It's just difficult material for non-Americans to take seriously.

No offense taken. None at all. This is the kind of thing that is fascinating to me. Do you see the songs I posted for meanmistermustart in that light? I really, really would like to know your reactions to them.

EDIT: @SatanHimself I moved this post over here in case you do want to reply so that we don't clutter up the news thread with non-Beatles news conversation.

After I thought about your post a bit, I can see how several country music artists come across the way you described. I definitely can. But, it fascinates me that Kenny Chesney would be one of them. The first song is about a young man who is living life too fast and crazy and needs to slow down. Ha! Perhaps that is an U.S.-centric trait. The second song is so sweet. A old bartender helps a young man realize that he needs to go home and make up with his wife. The third song is about the experiences of growing up in a small town.

However, if you see Kenny or any of those three songs a different way, I'd love to see your perspective.

testing, trying to figure out how to do an attachment

Well, this picture is in this post somehow as an attachment. I did the whole select file and upload process. I don't know how to get one "attached" at the bottom like Joe did. Anyone else figured it out?

EDIT: Once I saved the edited post, I saw the attachment thing. I didn't see it when I sent an attachment in a PM. Very interesting.

The following people thank Ahhh Girl for this post:

Finally, something other than a Heal/Hurt thread has appeared!

First, Let me try attaching something (though it seems to have already worked for you)

So this should be an mp3 of The End, to test mmm's question about downloads (right now it's just a pale orange square).

And here's the cover of the Yellow Submarine SongtrackEnjoy

EDIT: So you can play The End but not save it. That's tremendously helpful for showing you guys music so I don't have to link to a youtube video anymore. Is there anyway to make it take up less space in the post though?

Oh, and AG, I could never tell what your avatar said until I saw the full size image. Haha, that's funny.
