A Kid's Review
I loved Paul Mccartney since 2004.
I love this cd my forite songs are: Too much rain, How kind of you, English tea and Jenny Wren
Was this review helpful to you?
I still haven't heard the new Paul McCartney CD but I'm browsing for expert opinion. One amazon reviewer compared it to Smile, hmmm. I like Brian Wilson but like Smiley Smile much more than Smile. (Actually Friends, Wilson's first effort after Smiley Smile, is an incredibly interesting BB album. Eventually I'd like to do a post comparing it to Hemingway's "Big Two Hearted River." Or have I used that as a point of comparison before? Better check my archives before I write it.)
We have a Surf's Up addiction at my house. haven't heard the Paul McCartney cd, but we do have a running forite in the child-music-fan category.
Sure, Paul's great. And St. John. But what about solo efforts from George and Ringo that never found their way into the canon, gems such as "Crackerbox Palace" or the "No, No, No Song?" Regarding the latter, in some countries saying "No" three times means "Yes." Put that one on the kids IPod.
Three rights make a left, and three noes make a yes?
Yeah, but surely "I loved Paul McCartney since 2004" tops that in the ah youth dept.
Have to admit I'm so weak on George and Ringo lore I don't know what albums "Crackerbox Palace" and the "No No No Song" are on.
people don't usually think of Paul as making trippy music but he has made some really trippy instrumentals
I've said this before, but in his autobiography he says he was the one experimenting with tape loops--as in Tomorrow Never Knows and Revolution 9, which everyone assumes were John the Genius's. They were fucking Paul's!!! Go Paul Go!!!!!!
I don't like paul for two reasons, and both are ridiculous:
Pauline Dispensation: a Christian is not bound to remain single if his pagan partner is unwilling to live with him (vii, 12-15).
I've had Abbey Road loaded in the CD player in the car for a few weeks. I've concluded that my favorite songs are "Come Together" and "I Want You (She's So Heavy)".
as goofy as he looks and perhaps is, the guy was a serious motherfucker on the bass...
Lennon takes credit for Revolution 9 in this "lost" 1971 interview with Tariq Ali and Robin Blackburn, so who knows. The interview is worth a read.
I just listened to the Sesame Street disco album called Sesame Street Fever. "Me Lost Me Cookie at the Disco" is definitely the choice cut, but they all seemed pretty up to par.
The new McCartney album ('Chaos and Creation...') is pleasant if bland. "Jenny Wren" is reminiscent of "Black Bird", but more melancholy. "English Tea" is a piano and strings ditty with cute lyrics. It all sounds like watered down version of previous McCartney/Beatles stuff.
And yes - any fan of Pop/Rock from the Sixties needs to have the Beach Boys 'Friends' album in their collection (along with Smiley Smile). A soft, colorful gem of an album.
Joester! You are still alive! I hadn't heard a thing about you from your family, so I assumed that they went through a very short mourning period and swore never to mention your name again.
hello hooray by Rolf Kempf.
sorry tom, this is supposed to be the "i love paul" thread, but i love alice.
Was that School's Out or Billion Dollar Babies?
Billion Dollar Babies. I loved the Alice too, in spite of having to listen to Rolf's original version non-stop for several years.
Supposedly the indoctrination to Karlheinz Stockhausen, which was cited as the influence on Rev 9, was via Paul.
