3. Paul, this movement I need is on my shoulder?? What does that mean?

I thought it was only me who didn't get that. I've always felt too stupid to ask! Yes, it would be good to understand that line. Maybe because it's on your shoulder, next to you, within reach...?

Can we add to this question, "What's up with a piano up my nose?"

What other lines would we like clarification on? if he even remembers for some of them.a-hard-days-night-paul-10

I'm absolutely howling over vonbontee's questions for Paul! I wish Paul could read them!  I heard that Paul's line, "the movement you need is on your shoulder" meant nothing. Paul just put it in till he and John could come up with a line that made sense. But, John liked it that way and told him to keep it in. I can't recall the interview where Paul said that...maybe one from Anthology? When Paul got an award (can't remember which one) at the White House, Jerry Seinfeld had a bit before Paul went on. He said, "Paul..."She was just 17, you know what I mean?" Seinfeld then said, "No, Paul....we don't don't what you mean!"

Pauls explanation of the movement is on your shoulder is in the Anthology. Paul goes on to say that every time he sings it he thinks automatically of John, which is rather sweet.

Having seen the video for Où est le Soleil? i'd like to ask what the hell that was about. And does he look back at the Get Back project, grimace and wish he just hadn't of bothered?

On Paul avoiding eye contact of young female fans, I recall seeing a special that showed his backstage life in between concerts, approximately at the time during the last years with Linda, probably filmed in 96 or 97. At one point, he's in some hallway and has paused because a few people want his autograph.  One of them is a markedly attractive young brunette who hands him an album to sign.  The entire time he's with her and signing, he seemed remarkably demure, completely avoiding any eye contact or any nonverbal sign of anything, even when he handed the album back to her and was off on his way.

Interesting, thanks for the anecdote. The whole "sex symbol" thing is really a very strange reality to inhabit, when you think about it, and has all sorts of potentially messy implications on self-worth, reputation, and, of course, marital fidelity. I mean, I have to think Paul's insistence on stamping a big MARRIED! VERY VERY MARRIED! sign across his forehead for the past 40 years has as much to do with easing that pressure as with being a naturally uxorious guy. I think whatever awkwardness Paul feels nowadays about his sudden influx of young fans has to do with the way he separates his famous self from his real self (a sort of identity "splitting" he's talked about many times). When he's got his game face on, it's probably easy to be flirty, to fulfill the audiences' desire to be "wooed" by the cute one, to invite the occasional fan up onstage for a quick spoon, etc. ;P But the real self is still in there somewhere looking out, probably going "WTF" a little bit, and making sure things don't get carried away. So I think that's why he seems "demure" in more private, vulnerable moments, like standing backstage at the Grammys or meeting a fan in the hall. Or in interviews with Howard Stern! Who is seriously WAY too invested in Paul's sex life, lol. 

"So, back in the day, you banged TONS of chicks, amirite?"

"Um, well, I had relationships with many... very... nice people."

"So, you're dating EVERYONE right now, right? Christie, Rosanna, Renee?"

"STOP it, Howard."

Paul was on Stern eh?  That should be fun to watch.

Not long ago, Stern tried to get raunchy with Tony Bennett who valiantly and fairly successfully maintained his composure of a true gentleman without seeming stiffly stuffy.

He's been on twice, actually, and while I'm not always a big fan of Stern's "shock-jock" schtick, overall he got a couple really good, interesting interviews out of Paul. They used to be on youtube, but I'm not sure if they're there anymore...

Is that the interview where Paul is sitting on the couch? I've seen some of it. The question I would like to ask him about that interview is "Were you high when you did that interview?" He was so squirmy in the part I've watched.

Edit: I got my comment posted before I saw acmac's last post. So there have been two interviews. Must take time to watch both all the way through.

Come on, Forum Friends... just wonderin'...if any of us had his mobile number (or any phone number of his), is there anyone here who would have the courage to call it? I don't know what I'd do if he answered the phone!!! I'm betting that some of you would call it in a heartbeat! Hats off to you guys! (I'll give you my phone number so you can give it to him!)

I'd spend many months preparing for it, then when he actually picked it up and said "Hello?" I'd just sit there in silence until I break down and cry.

[three agonizing rings go by... then that telltale voice answers]

Hullow?

Hello, Paul!

Um, hullow.  Who's this...?

A big fan of yours.

Oh, well that's grand, I could use a big fan right about now.  It's really hot here in the airport in Louisiana -- no aircon here at the moment.

[panics, gulps]

... Hi Paul...!

Hullow again...

[Paralysis of the jaw sets in]

Well, must dash --!  My ride's here.  Nice chatting -- whoever you are.

[Paul to his assistant, Reginald:]

Oh Reggie, make sure to change my phone number.

Right!

These two Paul memes fit very well with this thread:

We have established this as a true statement:

However, we have also determined that Sir Paul McCartney, aged 71 years, would not say this:

-prosperous:rnrnpaulmccuntney:rnrn-prosperous:rnrnpaulmccuntney:rnrni dont get it :(rnrnPedo Paul. rnrn how is he a pedo tho i just dont get it :(:(rnrnI hope you’re trolling. It’s illegal for someone who is an adult to fuck a seventeen year old. And you know how Paul liked to fuck. rnrnOkay not to go all ~~serious business~~ on this tumblr because mostly I just like to cause problems but there are countries where the age of consent is below 17. For example the person who said they didn’t get it says they live in Scotland (I creeped on their tumblr. Sue me.), and the age of consent in Scotland in 16. Don’t be a dick to someone who doesn’t deserve it. But I don’t know. Maybe they were just trolling.rnAnd that’s the end of my rant. Play nice children.

1. Do you ever have dreams about beetles with wings?

2. Is there anything about yourself that you could tell us that would make us quit liking you? By this point, I just can't imagine that you could come up with anything.

3. My favorite word is "defenestrate". What is your favorite word?

#2 is good.

And favorites could also be expanded --

favorite color,

favorite fruit,

favorite dessert,

favorite musical instrument to listen to,

favorite planet,

favorite movie,

favorite Beatle...blue-meanie

fruit?: I wonder if it is an apple (obvious reasons) or banana (mentioned in Hi Hi Hi and Monkberry Moon delight)

planet?: Venus? Mars?

Beatle?: I know we were saying he wasn't big-headed and stuck on himself, but ... he just might answer this one with "myself". Or perhaps he would go this route, "The cosmic conscious collision of all 4 of us lads. We should have just dropped the "s"." "We are Beatle; hear us perform!"

movie?: probably not Magical Mystery Tour

dessert?: Nancy's lips? Oops, again I digress.

musical instrument?: I think this has to be some kind of guitar.

color?: I just hope it isn't some flaky answer like "rainbow".

1. What would you do if a fan called your mobile phone (or your home phone for that matter)? Would you talk to them (and profess your true feelings?)

2.What would you do to someone who was screwing with your copyrighted lyrics?

3. Would you come outside of your house if you saw a cute lady standing out there with a sign that said "Eat More Beef?"

In your plethora of interviews over the years, how much of what you have said is the truth and how much of it is Fab Four fibs? Can you still sort fact from fiction?
