OMG...re:  Here Today.  I had never heard the song before seeing Paul live in November/12.  I have never cried at a concert before in my life...but this song literally spoke to my heart & the tears were streaming down my face.  So beautiful, honest and touching.  I love it.  It will mean even more to me this time, if I get to hear it again heart

And the "it's a drag" thing...very few know how to deal with reporters period, never mind when they are grieving.  Grieving is difficult enough...doing it in front of the world makes it a million times more difficult. I agree with LHL, if you really know Paul, you can see the pain in his face during that interview.  It hurts me to watch it :(

I get angry about how they treated him when it happened. A) Leave him alone, he's just lost somebody who was like a brother to him B) If you really have to get your story out, treat him with respect and care and C) In the case that he doesn't know what to say, or if he says something you don't feel appropriate (not that it should matter to you how he reacts), keep it to yourself. As if things weren't bad enough already, he's then got the media slaughtering him.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

In "Band On The Run", the guitar part (I believe it it's a twelve stringed guitar) directly before 'Well the rain exploded with a mighty crash...'

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

My sense was that it's simply an electric guitar, bass, and orchestral strings (or synthesizer mimicking strings) all doing a certain lick in unison -- basically an upward arpeggio in C.

I think s/he means the chords after that break - C and Fmaj7.

This is a McCartney solo song, but I'll add it anyway.

During the studio version of Mrs. Vanderbilt, there is a call and response between vocals and a drum fill

What's the use of worrying? 

And I always found the drum fill funny, sort of like they were 'sneaky drums.'

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I was thinking we had a thread for Paul's song fragments, and sure enough here it is. I moved your post over here to its happy home. I would be up all night if I were to put in all the fragments of his that grab me. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

'Thank You Darling' is too saccharine and self-indulgent but the prominent guitar line (first heard 18 seconds in) is gorgeous and pulls me in.

Theres just something about Paul's ad-lib in the beginning of "I Lie Around" having fun, jumping into the water.. YA-Hayyyyyyy! a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Great song that is hardly heard since it's not on any of his albums, just the B-side to Live And Let Die.

I adore 'I Lie Around' for the very reason you state @Bongo and its a fabulous b-side that deserved to be more.

I've always liked the exchange between Linda and Paul on Uncle Albert

P:  I had another look and I had a cup of tea and butter pie
L:  Butter pie?
P:  The butter wouldn't melt so I put it in the pie, alright.

@mrneil2, I've moved your above post here as its better suited with all of Paul's solo career, plus you may find the other posts of interest.

And i'm with you on that exchange, for years i wasnt sure what was being said as i couldnt believe they were saying "butter pie" (this was the days before the net and a quick google search). 

And welcome to the forum. There is an introduce yourself thread if you want to (you dont have to) and i hope you have a look around not only the forum but also the rest of the site, there is a ton of information out there. Oh and post away.apple01
