Now you hate to jinx anyone by bringing up this topic, but McCartney himself did so in "The End of the End."

And as Ahhh Girl pointed out last September, (https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....cs/#p83863),

the lyrics are pretty good.

So what would be a fitting send off for the greatest singer-songwriter-performer of all time (tied with Lennon if you wish)?

I'm thinking of a train from London to Liverpool or vice versa carrying his regal remains (speaking of which, Charles by then will probably have just become king).

The train would move slowly and McCartney songs would be played all along the way.

Some student can tell us if the train's going 30 miles an hour, how many songs would be played? 

And then: which ones and in which order?

"Into the Sky with Diamonds" (the Beatles and the Race to the Moon – a history)

The End of the End should be at the end of the journey.
