Oh...my...God !

mith, you just made my day. I had never seen this song done live. What a performance!

One night not too long ago, Zag and I had a few libations and ended up playing this song back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back... We sang, laughed and generally had a good old time with one of our favorite songs.

There are not enough "Mals" in the world to express my appreciation for your sharing this.

mal-evans X 1,000,000,000

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

Same thing when I saw Paul in London in 2009, it was really cool a-hard-days-night-paul-8

Mull of Kintyre: The Writing of One of Paul's Most Enduring Hits.

Nice little video where Paul discusses the song and how he came to write it.

Far have I traveled and much have I seen
Darkest of mountains with valleys of green
Past painted deserts the sun sets on fire
As he carries me home to the Mull Of Kintyre ...

And to think Denny Laine also had a writing credit on this song too.  Denny went broke, Paul bought out the rights to his royalties of the song and gave him a big fat check!

I'd say he had a Beatley moment when it dawned on him what that sound was
