If you had one shot at having Paul McCartney sing you one of his songs...any one you choose...which one would you request? Would your request be different if he were singing it just to you alone in a studio or if he were singing it to you on a stage at one of his concerts before a packed out stadium? So, yes, you can give 2 answers if needed, one for in a studio and one for at a concert. If your answer changes in a few weeks or months and this awesome opportunity hasn't presented itself to you already, you can update your choice(s).

In either setting, I'm requesting "English Tea".

"I Will" when we're all alone; "Calico Skies" at concert. Heart skipping a beat just imagining it. Speaking of Imagine, that's what I'd have John sing to me if that were possible.

Ok, ok....I'll be corny here.  Not based on it being the "best written" song...I'd pick "And I Love Her".  Being a fan-girl at the moment...OMG, could you imagine?  Those gorgeous eyes looking at you whilst singing those words??!  heartahdn_paul_02heart *swoons*

"....take a sad song & make it Meilleur"....

I couldn't pick one of those kinds of songs because I would go into attack mode after the first 30 seconds.

I typed out my post, and then thought better of it as everyone else was giving really well thought out and intelligent replies, and this is the song I said.

Wouldn't it be lovely.... a-hard-days-night-paul-7heart

Ahhhhhhhhh! I might have to give into the peer-pressure of you two and get him to do that song for me too...but only in the studio setting. Hot flash.

Thank you :) Indeed it is very wonderful

And hearing it for the first time on the video in Blackpool(You know, the one where George goes 'opportunity knocksa-hard-days-night-george-10' ) can really give a guy goosebumps

Have you ever heard Ray Charles' version of "Yesterday"?  I hate to say this, but I almost like it better than Paul's.  It's very different of course; Paul goes for that monotone bleak sound to his voice to convey the sadness; Ray Charles as usual is more bluesy.

Just checked it out there

It sounds amazing :D I still don't like it as much as the original, though, but I can see why people would

Yeah, I agree about them sounding different

Both good though :)
