Paul, several of us have dreamed up a concert tour for you where you would play in smaller venues and perform only songs from your solo albums. Would you like some help putting together the set list for the concerts?

You would. OK. Your fans here on the Beatles Bible forum would be glad to assist you. I'll go first. The others can chime when they get a chance.

[snip from post 169 upthread]
From McCartney: Junk (not the singalong version), Lovely Linda,
Teddy Boy

combine this idea with what

acmac said (on the favourite-mccartney-lyrics thread)

As for having a tender heart, definitely. Paul is renowned for his ability to "put on a bland face," and I think that's largely the result of having learnt to deal with being naturally a great big cryer. There are just WAY too many stories of him losing it and bursting into tears for me to think otherwise. You can see it in action in the Kennedy Honors video when James Taylor and Mavis are singing "Let It Be." His eyes well up, but his face stays amazingly impassive -- "I am NOT going to cry on camera, dammit."

If singing Lovely Linda makes you want to cry, go for it. You will be among friends. Members of the Beatles Bible forum will act as bouncers at each performance. If anyone in the crowd so much as *thinks* about reaching for a recording device to capture that tender moment, they will be tossed out into the street on their head, and their recording device will be mutilated beyond recognition. We heart you, Paul.

Funny Paper said
Paul, do you know all your songs (Beatles and post-Beatles) by heart? 

Are there some songs you don't remember completely, and you have to refresh your memory, maybe you forget a chord or two, or a lyric here and there...?

Do you have a daily routine of playing songs for practice?  Given all the hundreds of songs you must know in your head, how many of them do you play each day?  There are only so many minutes in a day, plus you have other things to attend to in life -- how many songs can you practice each day? 

Aren't there some of your songs you never get around to playing -- maybe a whole year goes by without your playing them?

Do you feel the need to practice your songs plus the songs you know and love by others?  Or could you "rest on your laurels" and never have to practice them again?

Just before you perform a song for a concert, do you feel the need to "brush up" on the song by practicing it? If so, how many times do you play it?

Do you still make mistakes playing your own songs?

Have you ever found yourself wanting to change one of your songs markedly long after it has been produced on record, just through the mere fact of re-playing it over and over, and you find there are new improvisations and arrangements you'd like to add to it?

Okay, I see your bodyguards are getting edgy -- I'll let myself out now...  Thanks for the tea and scones...blue-meanie

In the article NME: Return of The Macca, he addresses that he does sometimes forget songs or couldn't tell you whats was on the album.
