Paul back in the charts
« on: February 23, 2015, 09:32:30 AM »

Good to see Paul back in the charts with FourFiveSeconds with Rihanna and Kanya West. Apparently he has broken the record for the longest gap between appearances in the UK top 10 - 1987 to now? The song is good.
We should bow to his greatness. He's part of the team that changes popular music and culture. He has a monstously succesful solo career, knocks out a best selling classical album, a hugely popular movie theme, kids songs, and now at 72 he can appear alongside 2 of the hippest, most succesful contempory acts around and still be coll. Very cool.

I am in awe.

I haven't heard the song yet, but you have piqued my interest.  Also, how much did Paul have to do with the song?  If he's just playing sideman here,  I don't find the feat so great as most people could jump on the bandwagon of todays biggest stars and grab some accolades.  If he had creative input to the song structure itself, I stand corrected.

Well, it's always nice to see Paul but... from a female vocal standpoint, I'd rather listen to Yoko on Double Fantasy and Milk & Honey.

Pretty average song for me. Has no melody like most of today's 'music' lol. My kids don't mind it though.

Apparently Rihanna's fans arent happy with the change from her usual stuff.

Showing my age I guess but... there's no tune! (try whistling it if you don't believe me)

Always nice to see Paul doing well though

And let's not overlook the obvious.... he's the only one actually playing a musical instrument, something I always suspect is beyond the ability of too many modern "stars".

Kanye West looks at times like he's having a seizure. Why isn't he embarrassed???
And why doesn't anyone ever dare to point out to such performers how stupid they look with such spasmodic choreography?

OK so you don't want to just stand there?

Great - LEARN TO PLAY AN INSTRUMENT!

Song is truly awful.  Good for Paul though.

Whoa, there, Trigger!
You KNOW if a song has nine writers it is a dud.
See also film scripts and/or sit coms that are written by committee.
