I really like New album, speaking of his material after the 90s. It’s pretty underrated.

  

Totally agree. And Egypt Station is excellent too.

New is great. I used to listen to it a lot circa 2016 or so, and I picked up a copy recently and was struck anew by how solid it is.

I’m trying to identify a song by Paul but can’t remember the title or any lyrics really.  All I can say is I think it’s in the 2000s, possibly as recently as a few years ago.  There was a part in the lyrics where it sounds like he’s poking around in his garden, looking at little things like flowers and things.

That’s all I got!  If anyone could help, I’d appreciate it.

Now today I find, you have changed your mind

Is it English Tea (on the album Chaos And Creation In The Backyard )?

Miles and miles of English garden
Stretching past the willow tree
Lines of hollyhocks and roses
Listen most attentively

Thanks Richard, I’ll have a listen and see if that’s the one.

I listened.  It’s a lovely song but I’m not sure it’s the one.  It’s possible Paul recorded it during the pandemic, so around 2020 to 2022?  If anyone knows of a song during that period that mentions a garden and flowers and things, that may be the one I’m looking for.

Now today I find, you have changed your mind

That suggests the album McCartney III .  Is it Winter Bird / When Winter Comes (on that album)?

In time to come they’ll make good shade for some poor soul

Did you know that Paul McCartney was to be cast in an episode of FRIENDS? 

The 1998 season 4 final would have seen Sir Paul cast as Emily’s father, as Ross and the gang travel to London for the wedding, ultimately Rachel turns up, Ross says the wrong name, and Emily runs out, eventually divorcing Ross — He’d be divorced 3 times!

 

Paul apparently had other commitments, but was “flattered” to be considered. Maybe more people would have watch Friends if for that.

I find it hard to wrap my head around the idea of Paul being cast as a mere human being, or in any other role other than Sir James Paul McCartney .

Paul: Yeah well… first of all, we’re bringing out a ‘Stamp Out Detroit’ campaign.

That would have been funny — imagine Paul on the American “Office” comedy show, playing a temp file clerk who is chronically inept and can never get the right files for the office staff.

…but he secretly stays late, and sets up his instruments and amps and recording gear all throughout the office; and then…

I can see it, maybe!

But as an actor, frankly, Paul has consistently shown us that…he isn’t a very good one; so I still kinda doubt it…

This is a brilliant fact that I didn’t know about. My two Mastermind topics combined.

I think it's great you're going through a phase,

and I'm awfully glad it'll all be over in a couple
