Hats off to Mr. McCartney there.

It's not often a song gets you first time, this has.

Que Todd b****in' on the hand claps.

I like it. No complaining about the hand claps. If I had anything negative to say about it, it would be that I felt his voice sounded tired and old, but it is so thats to be expected. I need to come to grips with that, but its tough.

Great song. Thanks for posting it Ollie.

Thanks for the positive reply, hopefully a few will also add their 2c...

Not been about recently, not that I've been anywhere, I can't be assed with the STINYC microscope either.

Eh, been pretty slow around here lately. Maybe if I started listening to the Beatles again, something interesting might come out of it.  ha2ha

It appears that a new song and album from Paul gets no attention on here anymore.

I know why I don't come here much anymore, there's new Paul music just about to be released and no sod is talking about it.

This is a nostalgia forum, nothing more.

I gave it two listens and thought it quite good, but nothing more. My opinion may change for better or for worse when the album's out, but I'm "saving it" until then. I don't want to be tired of the song by October - I want to be able to open-mindedly judge it within the context of the album.

It's a nice song.  It would be even nicer with a piccolo trumpet ending.   ;)

Yay Paul!

Usually, I'm not too much into Paul's solo stuff. But when I heard that song on the radio, I liked it immediately. It's very catching and reminds me of the Beatles - so it can't be bad to my ears. "Now" I'm looking forward to the whole album...

Right, Snoop.  It's like 1967 all over again!

... but why 1967 ? I mean, the hand-clapping could also be from 1964, couldn't it ?

Yes, Snoopy, it could have been any of The Beatles years.  But the song reminded me a lot of Penny Lane.  I listened to it right after I got Paul McCartney's email on the 29th.  I see by the comments left on YouTube that many others feel that way too.

I'm also looking forward to the full album.

That's odd, I can't really rely this song to Penny Lane, maybe because of the clapping-hands or maybe I should listen to "new" a few more times  ;D. Anyway, I'm very curious about the whole album, if the rest of it also sounds like the Beatles; let's wait and see  :)

It doesn't sound any more or less like a Beatle song than about 75% of tunes with a Macca lead vocal if you told someone who was only a casual observer of the B's that it was a Beatle tune...

Wasn't "Fine Line" "Lady Madonna"? "Jenny Wren" was "Blackbird"?

There's going to be similarities but apart from it having that oh so obvious infectious Macca sound then I can't hear "New" as "Penny Lane".

That's the usual crap from the part-timers...

There are handclaps in Penny Lane too.  But as I said, my first thought upon hearing it a few days ago was that it was reminiscent of Penny Lane.

I guess now I should listen to it again...for clues.    ;D
