Let's get working on mmm for Jet and Dance Tonight. 

Once those conversions are accomplished, we can pull him along into "Hold Me Tight."

Which one, bought are utter claptrap and a waste of existence?

Both, mmm, both.

I wouldn't hold your breath on it happening before i die otherwise you'd go before me and that wouldn't be much good for Extra Texture who is hoping to see Ringo with you and your respective spouses.

If you take Textpert, add a few letters, remove a few others, and then rearrange the letters then eventually you end up with Texturea-hard-days-night-paul-5 Same with bath and metamorphosis. a-hard-days-night-ringo-4

I think Extra and Texture immediately comes to mind. There is only person to blame for this and that is ahdn_george_01 who should have thought of this possibility back in 1975. 

In all seriousness apologies for the slip-up.apple01 Not quite the naughty step yet, more a quick reprimand. One more and it will be.

I totally remembered that at the time and it was just a play on words. It really was. a-hard-days-night-paul-9

You guys converted me to like Mc Cartney II.

LOL, that's awesome. I have to hear this story. What was the song(s) that did it for you, or the convincing comment(s) here on the forum?

I have a Real Love/hate relationship with that album. I think it's awful. Poor production, extremely dated in its sound, songs that mostly just meander and are instantly forgettable … and yet, I love it. "Temporary Secretary" is on my running/workout mix, and I actually bothered to spend the time learning it on my guitar. "Check My Machine" is somehow addictive, god knows why. "One of these Days" is … well, I just really like the melody and the chord changes.

Not a bit like Cagney.

Macca II is one of my favourite Paul albums that i can play thru without any reaching for skip. Right from the off with the poppy Coming Up its a blast as its so over the place, the electric syths of Temporary Secretary to the heavy guitar brilliance of On The Way (not a trakc that you find often in Paul's catalogue and in my head could be a frontrunner for the Fireman work) to Waterfalls which is such a beautiful ballad. A very eclectic mix of tricks. Bogey Music gets my foot tapping, Dark Room is creepy and weird but fun, Summer Day Song and One of These Days are both gorgeous. Even the instrumentals i find interesting, far more so than the ones on McCartney.

It's a very fun album where i get the feeling that Paul was looking to make a record that he enjoyed more than please listeners and critics and be successful and sell; looking to clip his Wings. Its very much not a Wings album.

I did that once, but I was stoned at the time and couldn't be bothered to get up and hit the skip button. :)

Oh yeah, I totally forgot about "Summer Day Song"! I really like that one too. It almost sounds like a Bach chorale to my ears. I would love to hear it re-recorded with an actual string section.

Good god, PeterWetherby, I haven't seen you post here for like 3 years now!

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967
