Paul Super Bowl
« on: February 03, 2005, 11:42:06 PM »

It will be interesting to see what songs he choses to perform, whether it will indeed be songs from The Beatles, or from his solo career. It will also be interesting to see who he  invites to perform with him.


Ringo maybe? A semi-Beatles reunion would be interesting.

I hope its just Paul and his band. No Christina Timberlake Aguilara Spears or whoever the be-bop of the week is.

It's going to be a great with Paul rocking the halftime show at the Super Bowl with possibly Ringo on drums.

Please, I hope he doesnt do 'Drive My car'. I wonder why he would do that song? I can understand 'Hey Jude' and 'Live and Let Die' as they do a good job of getting the crowd going and 'Get Back' has a nice nostalgia thing going for it, but 'Drive My Car' does nothing. Oh well, its just not my cup of tea and I think theres better tunes to be played.

I agree with you about Drive My Car ikitna which is mostly a mediocre Beatle classic at best.

He should play "I'm Down" for the team that's behind at half time.

I can't believe that the poor guy has demeaned himself so much by

A) accepting the gig in the first place

B) allowing possible songs to be vetted!

Has Paul McCartney no pride left? Being permitted to sing a couple of songs at half time in a footy game? Has it really come to this? Go home Macca, and play with Bea.

But by doing this he will expose Beatles/Paul music to tons of younger people, and there can't be any downside to that.

It's not such a demeaning thing to perform at the Super Bowl. It's gets a HUGE audience and football isn't like some volleyball match or something. Some pretty big people have perfomed over the years. U2 for one. I think putting your song in a lame commerical (clapton, stones, who, kinks) is more demeaning.

A gentle reminder that most people in the WORLD are NOT Americans, will not be watching the superbowl. They are not impressed at all by the whole shebang.

The overwhelming number of young people who know anything about Paul's music, think he is a total loser. Singing such songs as Let It Be, or Jude, or Get Back will not help his cause.

All I was saying is that it's not a demeaning thing. Where did ANYONE imply that MOST people ARE Americans???

I mean maybe people who are not American think it's demeaning because it IS something American. In MY opinion it's not a big deal. And I've known people from the UK that DO watch American football and love it. Apparently they have cable.

Hopefully he will choose a "cooler" tune, such as Helter Skelter, which is what  we at the forums were hoping he would do back when it was announced that he would perform in the halftime show.

The songs I would like him to sing are:

I'm Partial To Your Abracadbra, the Ian Dury & The Blockheads number that Paul did for the Ian Dury tribute album. Paul's vocal on this is EXCELLENT, and the song seems ideal for half-time at the footy: raunchy and loud.

Then (seriously), Mary Had A Little Lamb. I would bet that he could have the whole stadium singing along. After all, he would have them eating out of the palm of his hand after Abracadabra so they would do anything.

Marvellous!
