Saw that no one had talked about this song yet, this might be my favorite McCartney song. I am a James Bond nerd, so that might be why... But really, this song is just perfect as a Bond theme!

Another Bond need right here. If you see Paul live, its fantastic when he does this song. He sets up a huge rig of explosions. I could feel the heat from 100 yards away!

Goodness gracious, you have no idea how much I would love to go to a Macca (or Ringo) concert! Even if I only got to hear this song, I would die happy. Alas, none of his tour stops have been anywhere near me!

We may see some dates soon. I wish you luck. I pray he comes back to the Southeast.

I really like the Wings song Live And Let Die , it’s got a pretty good feel. Recently, I heard the Guns N’ Roses cover of the song. I must say, I really like the heavier take on it. Original still good... but kinda loving the Guns N’ Roses cover.

Any thoughts?

Reporter: Beethoven figures in one of your songs. What do you think of Beethoven?
Ringo Starr: He’s great. Especially his poetry.

I recommend (for the sake of the lovely mods) you use the pre-existing thread https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....d-let-die/

Personally I think Paul does it better live than the studio version...

I have never seen this song (or any song a-hard-days-night-paul-10) live, but @AppleScruffJunior posted a video of Paul performing it in the Freshen Up thread, and the pyrotechnics were incredible.

Love one another.

The song works well for Bond because it works in a lot of appropriate moods. Danger, adventure and romance. My favourite part is easily the slowed down “you used to say live and let live....” section just before the end.
