Glad you gave it a listen, BeatleManiac.  In an interview in the early 70s, John Lennon was complaining about all these versions of Beatles songs he didn't like -- then when the interviewer said "What about Ray Charles' 'Yesterday'?" John just said:  "Nice."a-hard-days-night-john-2

If we're talking Paul at the height of his powers: the Abbey Road medley, starting with "You Never Give Me Your Money." (Cheating? Don't care!) 

If we're talking nowadays-Paul, then "Early Days."

Very interesting topic. This is difficult. I'm going to break the rules a little if you don't mind by adding my top songs I'd want him to sing to me.

-Blackbird

-Fool on the Hill

-Little Willow

I feel I'm missing a good song but there you go:)

"Country Dreamer" because of reasons...

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

If he were standing like that while singing me a song, I admit, I really don't think my ears would be taking it in. Cognitive overload would be coming from another sector. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I'd pick a song he's never sung before, like Mairzy Doats.

I don't even know what I'd want to hear in a concert setting. Too much to pick from. If it were just us in a casual setting, I'd pick something light and fun like "All Together Now" probably. I might even be able to play along a bit. a-hard-days-night-paul-8

I was just about to say something similar.  I might want to have him sing something that isn't a Beatles or Paul solo song.

 

Then I can record it and sell it to bootleggers. :P

 

(Not really...)

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016.

The Inch Worm.

Paul's rendition of this song really evokes the images vividly. His voice seems so suited for the song.

Wait. No, AG. Vivid images probably isn't the way you should phrase this response after your crash and burn in response to LHL up thread. a-hard-days-night-paul-10paul-mccartney

There's just something comforting and yet emotional about hearing Paul sing "The Inch Worm."  I also really enjoy the children's chorus.  I wouldn't want him to sing it from the stage.  I imagine him singing it in a personal setting.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

I concur. So, what song would you choose for a big concert setting?
