That's the one, and here is the video for anyone that's interested.feature=feedlik

Do you know of any other similar songs done by Paul in the style of Blackbird, Mother Nature's Son or Calico Skies? They are just so much fun to play and I'm wondering if he's done anything else like those. Thanks.

GnikNus: Off the top of my head, the song that immediately comes to mind is Jenny Wren from Chaos And Creation In The Backyard, which is basically a throwback to Blackbird's style. It's a very pretty song, and it keeps Paul's weird theme of birds going (Blackbird, Bluebird, Jenny Wren, Two Magpies). Here's a nice version done in studio for the promotional program Chaos and Creation at Abbey Road.

Of course, I like the recorded version better because there is a duduk solo. It's neat sounding instrument that is replaced by Wix on the accordion in live versions.

There is also Junk and Singalong Junk from McCartney. Here's a live version with three guitars. Not sure how many were used to record it originally.

There's also Bip Bop from Wild Life, which isn't a very good song, but it has good guitar. I'm pretty sure Paul is embarrassed by this song, but the video version with little Heather and Mary playing and laughing while him and Linda sing it is cute. I'm fairly certain you won't like it, so I won't bother finding the video. It's a fun little ditty, though…nothing too serious.

Mull Of Kintyre has Paul's nice acoustic sound, but it's obviously more than just an acoustic song. I like the intro because it's the only think I can play on my guitar (meaning I can play an A chord…). It's simple.

I'm sure there are more out there. I've heard almost all there is to hear, but I can't think anymore really obvious ones.

Another song with that acoustic vibe is Great Day from Flaming Pie. Theres a clip of Paul playing it around a campfire which then cuts to the studio, i guess from the film released at the time - The World Tonight (that could be wrong)?

 

 

There is also a Paul demo of Goodbye, a song he wrote for Mary Hopkin (an artist he signed to Apple) which has that same kind of sound.

Because I heart The Beatles I haven't ever underrated a song of them because of its position on the track list.
However, on Oasis' Morning Glory album, Don't Look Back in Anger always seems to me it's not a special song after having heard Wonderwall (named after the film of the same name, whose soundtrack was written by a-hard-days-night-george-4).

Sont des mots qui vont très bien ensemble.

I meant that after listening to Wonderwall, Don't Look Back in Anger doesn't seem very special to me, BUT when I listen to it SEPARATELY I love it...

Not to get too nit-picky, but "Don't Look Back" comes before "Wonderwall" in track order. I suppose your point is just as valid (about WW being better in context), but it doesn't have as much to do with Mith's original idea...Maybe i'm just starting to confuse myself. In any case, "She's Electric" is my favorite from (WTS)MG. Happy listening! apple01
