It May Be depressing but I Think He was able to write his solo songs to match that, but he doesn't have that luxury if he plays I'm Down

He still sounds good though. And he sings it in the original key.


The YouTube description says this is taken from the Good Evening NYC DVD, but my copy has this song intercut with footage of The Beatles playing it at Shea. What was the US edition like? Did it have The Beatles on it too?

Does Paul still sound good on the I'm Down video - for sure. Can you hear his voice has aged? For sure.

It is actually a bit easier to do the rockers than the ballads - because as long as you can push your voice - and his voice is still strong - just aged - as long as you can push you'll get a lot of air moving. A rocking tune requires a different tone - raspy is good then and you're pushing the upper parts of your vocal chords and throat.

In a ballad it's all tone, tone, tone. That's when all the warts are going show.

Sorry this is kinda late, but did anybody watch the Saturday Night Live episode in December with Paul?  Martin Short was hosting.  It was a really good episode!  He had a funny little skit with Martin Short that I found amusing, but unfortunately ended with Paul's Christmas song (my dislike for Christmas music is not over-powered by my burning love for Paul a-hard-days-night-paul-7).  

 

Since we're on the subject of SNL...  this is one of my favourite things ever, seeing as I'm also a big Chris Farley fan:  

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....Ah9x5-5ffo

"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!"

Cause I think thats from the 80s or 90s. Chris Farley has been dead for about two decades.

If your dislike of Christmas music extends to something so utterly secularized and banal and devoid of Christmas references (except for the word itself), then you're being an irrational extremist about it.  What happened, did Santa molest you or something?

I liked the one he was in December, but the one he did back 2010 I believe, I like that one a lot better. He did more sketches in the in the 2010 one.

 

 

 

This is an outtake from that episode (it was all I could find besides the music).

Paul appears around 4:55 in the video.

Well that would explain it - lol. I have no idea who Chris Farley is and assumed it was a recent broadcast, especially when i misread the original post. I read the sum as 2 + 2 when in fact it was 2 * 58.

Yes he did!  Thanks for pouring salt on the wound!  paul-mccartney

 

Seriously though, I don't know what it is about it that I don't like.  Just too cheesy I guess.  I'm not anti-Christmas because I definitely love Christmas, just not the music.  I didn't always hate the music, and I chop this up to two factors:

1)  When I was a kid I had this cassette tape of "Disney Christmas" songs.  Basically it was all the classics with the Disney characters singing along.  I loved it to death and listened to it for many Christmases in a row, until it mysteriously disappeared.  Probably a decade later, my mom admitted that she hated it so much that she hid it on me!  So she killed my (annoying) Christmas spirit at that time.

 

2)  I also blame my boyfriend for his love of Jazz and Big Band.  When Christmas comes around he'll turn on the radio to those, and nothing gets under my skin more than Nat King Cole singing "Winter Wonderland" or any other over-played hit.  Just doesn't turn my crank in the slightest.

 

There's just so little to choose from they all get worn out, not matter which style they are sung in.  It's not like the Beatles where I can hear the songs a million times and still love them.  a-hard-days-night-paul-7

 

 

"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!"

I wish these were easier to find. They get taken down from YouTube and often SNL's official site won't have the license to stream entire episodes. Seems if you don't tape them while they happen, some sketches are lost forever.

On a related note, what I really want to find again is Dana Carvey's impression of Paul during the "Sinead O'Connor Awards" sketch. This will have to do for now (warning for a bit of language):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....eHr-M0fXL4

 

and the Anthology spoof (as a bonus, that's Stephen Colbert as George)

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.

Awesome!  Love Dana.  He does good impressions!
