Paul has done so many great live versions of his studio songs and some that were not studio versions. My favorite for years was the flip side of the 'My Love' single: The Mess (Live At The Hauge)

The further one travels, the less one knows

Something and Calico Skies. I think he did a beautiful version of George's song, and in my opinion, he improved the second one.

 

Another favorite to be in the concert, Let 'em in a-hard-days-night-paul-8

Here comes the sun….. Scoobie-doobie……

I saw him live in December! a-hard-days-night-paul-6 Yeah I did love Something on the ukulele, it was beautiful.

Thinking back, the songs that I just fell in love with all over again were Magical Mystery Tour (which he opened with), Here Today (at which point I think it was impossible not to get emotional!), Blackbird, Get Back and and Got To Get You Into My Life. He also sung Wonderful Christmas Time which was pretty special! It's so hard to pick favourites though, that whole night was just incredible!

I have dreams about seeing Live And Let Die performed live. I bet that would be epic.

"I'm Down." 

Honestly, that song only improves when performed live. 

If that doesn't work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....fvA6luvdAg

When I saw Paul in Miami last April, the individual songs that really jumped out unexpectedly were "Something", "Ob La Di, Ob La Da", and "Blackbird".  But the section that was just overwhelming was the regular set closeout with "A Day In The Life/Give Peace A Chance", "Let it Be", "Live And Let Die", and "Hey Jude." 

I don't think there was a dry eye in the house during "Let it Be."  I know I could barely sing along, I was so choked up.

Interestingly, you wouldn't think a James Bond shoot-em-up score like "Live And Let Die" would be a good followup to the plea for love and understanding of "Let it Be", but it somehow works.  "Live And Let Die" comes off more like a third-party confession of failure to follow the ideal of peace when paired with "Let it Be."

Ahh, who am I kidding?  It was the pyrotechnics, man!!!

It is epic, especially with the fireworks going off throughout the song and the massive display at the end. Unbelievable

Live And Let Die was amazing in concert! I wasn't expecting the pyrotechnics at all. Something was really amazing with the photo montage, a lot of the pictures I had never seen before. Also one that really stuck with me was the one he sang in tribute to John Lennon Here Today, had me bawling my eyes out in the first verse!

"I'm Down." But if you're talking non-Beatles, I think "Band On The Run" is pretty dang fun. 

17! The universe agrees with me!

If you're talking about recorded "live" versions than it's gotta be Coming Up or it could be The Mess or Soily since we only get "live" versions of those great tracks. But, seeing him live...Let Me Roll It just brings it home, baby. 1985 was pretty kick ass as well with everyone stomping and clapping with the piano intro to every verse. Letting Go worked really well live also but Live And Let Die is that point in the show where everything explodes (pyro, lights, collective minds)!

Hey Jude when everyone is singing along to the coda - the joy and togetherness between everyone at that moment is something special. Hey Jude is a fantastic example of how music can bring people together for a brief moment in time and let everything go.

Even people who hate the beatles music with a passion get caught up in the chorus and start singing along.
