We Can Work It Out

Mr. McCartney, unplugged, after a few bad starts does, indeed, work it out.

Most sources about the song confirm that Paul wrote the “We Can Work It Out” verse and John wrote the “Life is very short” middle.

“Once There Was A Way To Get Back Homeward…”

Monday morning McCartney with a smashing live rendition of “Golden Slumbers,” “Carry That Weight,” and “The End.” Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits and Eric Clapton on guitars, an absolutely amazing Phil Collins on drums, and the orchestra and choir led by none other than George Martin at the Royal Albert Hall for a 1997 charity benefit.

Waiting For Someone To Perform With

Sunday evening, Paul finds 50,000 to perform with, nah-nah-nah-nah-ing far into Monday morning.

Paul McCartney at the amazing Hyde Park concert in 2010, singing “Hey Jude.”

By the end, I think even McCartney was in awe. All 50,000 people, men, then women, were singing in the right key.

Here is the incredible set list for the concert that night:


Heart Of The Country


Josh Turner and friends cover the Paul McCartney ditty from the Ram album. I really enjoyed the extended banjo, fiddle, bass, and drum chorus at the end. And how the heck does Josh do that video editing, keeping all the audio in synch?

A World Without Love


Monday morning, Peter and Gordon’s 1964 terms of endearment are seconded by the Austrian MonaLisa Twins.

The song was written by Paul McCartney, who was dating Jane Asher, Peter’s sister.

I’ll Be Back: The Beatles


There’s something about the musical structure of this song that made it one of my favorites from the first time I heard it. Great lead by John and harmonies by Paul.
