Since I'm hearing some love for Paul's last decade here, can anybody throw out a suggested list of some of the best songs on each album starting with, say, 'Run Devil Run'?

 

They don't have to be singles or anything.  Just cuts that you feel are among the better ones on each album. 

E is for 'Ergent'.

Havent listened to RDR in a long while but No Other Baby has a great vocal, guitar solo and feel to the song and Brown Eyed Handsome Man really swings. I still think Buddy Holly did the ultimate version of that track but Pauls is really good. Its no wonder these were the tracks pulled for the single.

In my opinion they have earned the right to exit the stage with grace and they ought to. And I love Paul - don't get me wrong. I know this post will drop me off  a lot of Christmas lists. I just don't want him to conclude his career with reviewers saying "why does he keep on going when his voice is so clearly gone" If not this year, it will be next year.

Agreed to everything you said. Saw him in 2002 - EXCELLENT performance! Saw some youtube clips from 2006 on - voice gone.

And I seriously don't understand why he still tries to sing "Maybe I'm amazed" which was impossible for him to do as soon as the 70s were over.

 

But I guess he just NEEDS the thrill of rocking a stadium with tens of thousands of people, and he can't just quit it, seeing the popular demand is still huge. People like him, being in the spotlight all their live can't just quit.

The only thing to REALLY stop him would be if he would do some REALLY serious damage to his vocal chords without being able to sing at all.

Listening to him it can't take much more time until that happens...

 

If he could stick to smaller venues with a more quiet repertoire it would suit him much better.

I wish him all the best and that he manages to find a way that satisfies his own needs of performing (being a performer myself I know about the kick you get - it's like a drug) without ruining his health and credibility.a-hard-days-night-paul-7

My point exactly. The question is why does he need the thrill of people screaming at him and adoring him. I will never understand adulation. He lives for attention which is one of the main reasons I love Harrison. He was never into the attention part of his fame but stayed humble throughout his career.

I agree with what all of you have said 100%. Paul needs attention on and off the stage. Here's my reasoning:

1 Paul was always the most enthusiastic Beatle when reporters wanted an interview or photo

2 His relationship with Jane Asher didn't work because she put her career before Paul (good for her!)

3 Wives #2 and #3

Imo, his singing is fantastic here.

1) Can you please try and quote in a more readable way.

2) Can all of you please stop using my quote as a vehicle for calling Paul an attention seeking freak??

He loves being celebrated for his music - wow, shocking!

After a whole life in the spotlight he's used to it - wow, shocking!

He's a creative person and loves to share the results with other people - wow, shocking!

Sure, there are people even more humble than him who take less interest in publicity.

I'm still glad we have this huge superstar who always stayed true to his artistic beliefs, who always stayed true to his message of love, who always stayed true to his engagement for animal and human rights, who always stayed true to his family, who always stayed true to his fans.

Are you performers yourself? Then you KNOW about the kick you need from playing live and how you miss it.

Are you not? Then why do you judge Paul?

3) To call your reasoning "thin" would be THE understatement of the still young century.

All right. I will put a stop to this. We all know that McCartney can't sing as well as he did when he was young. As far as him quitting making music, that is entirely up to him. I am also a musician that performs live practically every week and I hope I will be able to sing as well as him when I am 70. I am turning 60 next week.

As far as him seeking attention, we our all different. I personal don't like artists and entertainers that get on ego trips but to each his own. We need to look at ourselves and be true to who we are. The fact is that Paul is and has always been an incredible singer/songwriter/musician and entertainer which is what makes him who he is. Keep in mind that without his personality in the Beatles, they would never have been as success as they were. Each of them brought their own creative talents to the group and that is why they were so special.

The further one travels, the less one knows

I don't think thewordislove94 was even criticising Paul. It's quite obvious that Macca is the kind of guy who loves attention and publicity and I don't think that needs to be read as a negative facet of his personality; it's served him extremely well over the course of his career. Why jump down someone's throat just because they stated the facts?

Paul McCartney shouldn't stop until I get to watch at least one of his concerts. I wish he would tour somewhere in Asia so I could watch him. I know he wouldn't tour here lol.
