Paul is pretty poppy, but he's in no way the trashy and for the most part, severely untalented pop that we typically have. Sure, he wasn't the big hardcore rock 'n' roller, but he's no slutty pop princess or commercially packaged, choreographed teenager-in-a-box. He's...Paul McCartney. Beatle Paul. I'd concider him a rock legend -- if not for his songwriting, his BASS PLAYING. He's pretty underrated for that, but with the Beatles, he was one of the best!
I mean, yeah, he seems to be a lot into the "Beatle!Paul" thing, but...hell, I dunno. I'd go into some sort of sentence about "If you were a Beatle..." then again, if you were a Beatle, i'd be in mad crazy awe and have SO
many questions. XD But yeah.
And post-Beatles, he did write Maybe I'm Amazed
and that's OMGWTFBBQ amazing. <3 But y'know, it's...just that thing with Paul, I guess. He'll either write a beautiful, wonderful song or something sorta boring and lightweight. *shrug*
But blah. They were all ex-Beatles, they all took different roads, it got them places or didn't. It's just how life is, and you're not going to get a perfect - spectacular - great album all the time, and not so much if you're trying to please commercially. *shrug* I'm just going to stick with "I like the Beatles, Paul was poppier solo than the others, I loved "Maybe I'm Amazed", so ... YAYE!" because I wanna. XD;;;;
. Take Bob Dylan for example, one of the few songs of his I enjoy ids Like A Rolling Stone, which is attractive immediately because of its jangling spirit. Only after a few listens do the lyrics stick.
Exactly. o_____o I couldn't say it better about Like A Rolling Stone
. At first, it's really hard to get what he's saying at all -- basically all you can get is "How does it FEEEEEEEEL?!" and then, "Like a rooooooooling stoooooone..." until you play it again and listen for the rest. But what makes it so likeable is that...y'know, you can't understand hardly a word he's saying, but the song's just got that jinglejangly spirit and the whole feeling of, "Hey, it's the sixties, let's go twirl around a field to this song!" in a way. Yeah. ...I, er, hope you get what I mean here. XD;;; Sorry. But the Beatles, Paul...there's nothing really deep in "She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah!" or "Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs! I look around me and I see it isn't so!", right? Just fun. Teehee.
...and landmines are bad...'member that. Badbadbad!
