'All You Horse Riders' always reminds of that awful Black Lace number 'Superman' (below in spoiler). I do hope we never discover that 'AYHR' was the inspiration of 'Superman' as whoever was behind it heard Paul's track somehow.

Wow, that was entertainingly idiotic, thanks for that!

I have no idea what I just watched, but it reminded me of something the teacher might have made us do in elementary school.

Expert Textpert said
Which Paul albums I like depends on my mood, but this is what I was interested in today:

Give My Regards To Broad Street
McCartney II
Tug Of War
Return to Pepperland
Pipes Of Peace

Funny, those are all my least fav.

 1970-1978 was just amazing music solo/Wings stuff.  Back To The Egg was the ending for me, although I absolutely loved "One Of These Days" from McCartney II .

I feel a bit silly posting this, but silly is my job. And what is a forum of Beatley people for if not for announcements such as this: 

Today is the first day of Paul's birth month!

@Expert Textpert   As has often been noted, it's remarkable how Beatle fans can't agree on what the good and the bad songs are, and McCartney fans can't agree on the good vs the bad solo McCartney stuff. (There's another thread on the best McCartney songs.) 

And here we have another example: the albums listed by Expert Textpert are also my least favorite ( I don't even know Return to Pepperland though I have the Pepperland music from Yellow Submarine .) So it goes.

@Beatlebug  So excited for you! 🙂

Return to Pepperland is an album that he never released. I think some of the material made it onto Flowers In The Dirt .

For the record, I didn't say I considered these albums his best material, just that I was in the mood to hear them. I do think they are good albums, and maybe even better than some of his other material, such as Off The Ground , Driving Rain , and Wild Life .

Not sure where to post this but I just ordered a copy of "The Last Temptation of Elvis," which has Paul doing "Now or Never" on it. I believe it is one of the outtakes from CHOBA B CCCP.

I think this reviewer got it right:

http://www.philly.com/philly/b.....enter.html

He's brought more joy to more people than anyone else (in the last 50 years at least).

And yet many of his songs are plenty deep.

Paul McCartney has a lot of DVDs.

I mean he has a lot of DVDs with his name on them for sale. I don't know how many he has on the shelf at home.

They should compromise and get Paul McCartney to write a strange song about Jesus.

I was listening to my YouTube Liked videos on shuffle whilst putting the dishes up, and 'Calico Skies' came on. Let me just say I was appreciating Paul very much. ahdn_george_06heartheartheart

I sanged along with every word too, difficult though it was to restrain my   beatlemaniacs_02_gif heartheartheart  

AHHH Paul, stahp it yis are makin' me luv ye too much a-hard-days-night-paul-10 Them ballads take me out; I already have a weakness for sweet-voiced tenors crooning balladsy lovesongs in me ears whilst fingerplucking away at their lovely acoustic guitars and nobody does it like Paul.  a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Calico Skies is just as good as anything. I like how he combines love and war..it's a beautiful song. One of his best, IMHO.
