I just mentioned this song in the "favorite live song" thread but I was just wondering other feelings on this song. It's personally my absolute favorite solo Paul song. I love the lyrics and the simplicity of the music which pushes the lyrics to the foreground bringing so much more meaning to the song.

When are you free to take some tea with me?

This song makes me cry my eyes out. After I saw this one video of Paul performing it live and crying during it just hit me right in the heart, and the feeling always comes back when I try to watch it. It is my favorite solo song of his, and it is one of the fe songs that can make my cry.

The first time I ever heard this song was watching him perform at Shea or rather Citi Field couple years ago. I almost started crying. I was like "Y U SO PERFECT MACCA?"….okay I didn't say it like that, but I still loved the performance and song either way. Quite touching. 

 

*9* The 9 would never lie about how touching this song is.

I heard the live versions before the studio one. I found the latter slightly disappointing – I much prefer the simple acoustic guitar arrangement to the strings/guitar one, although it is a very good George Martin score.

this song doesn't move me as it should. I really think it could be better

I like the song because it's not like a typical tribute song. It's got a psychological element to it, I think I've heard Paul talk about how he wrote it as if he were having a conversation with John. It was nice seeing him perform it live, which I agree is much better than the studio version.

The Version he sang at the Montreal Concert I attended was the Best version he plays.

I agree 100% the first time I heard it was in concert I never heard the studio version until just now. I don't think it was terrible, I guess the live version gives a deeper feeling.

Or the live version, is is just him, or is there syntheised strings? I can't remember.

This song is so beautiful. I've listened to it every day since my Nanna died. It does make me feel better just because of the fact it's Paul singing but it makes me cry because it's just so beautiful. 

Godd, I didn't think music could have such an impact but obviously it can, and it has. 

Paul McCartney is just perfect. He's staying in my life forever

It certainly does. That's one of the million reasons why I'm so glad to be a Beatles fan.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Oh yes, when he says 'what about the night we cried? there wasnt any reason left to keep it all inside' that gets me. When I saw him this summer, it seemed to me that he was singing it from the heart. He really meant it. Every version of anything Paul ever does is perfect to me though, hehea-hard-days-night-paul-11

It always gets me there too, it was the one of the few times I have ever cried because of a song. Even just reading the lyrics made me tear up.
