Paul McCartney Songs We Secretly Want to Hear at Minute Maid

Paul McCartney usually starts his set lists with "Magical Mystery Tour" and then lives up to it, hopscotching between Beatles, Wings, and his solo stuff.

But there are a few cuts out of his 50-plus-year catalog that I want to hear out of total selfishness, songs that I know he could never probably bring himself to play live. Some that he may be surprised he even had the constitution to record.

For the total oddity of it, I would trade hearing "I'm Looking Through You" for "Spies Like Us." Or "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" for 1997's "The World Tonight". Flaming Pie wasn't awful.

"Biker Like An Icon"

People in Houston like motorcycles and the folks who ride them. Also, I think Dave Matthews has ripped this song off a few times, the hook mostly. This has an interested Tom Petty bent to it too.


"We All Stand Together"

If only to watch diehard Macca fans poop their relaxed-fit jeans in white-hot anger, and for stoned teens to be enthralled with the artist's foray into children's music.


"Spies Like Us"

Ooooh ooooh I wanna tell my grandkids that I saw this live in concert one day, so I can bear witness that it happened for generations to come .

So. What are the odds that he'll do Jenny Wren?

Press, No More Lonely Nights, Take it Away, Beautiful Night would be nice, but On the Wings of a Nightingale would be sublime.

"Rocky Racoon", silly & fun.  With George Martin on honkytonk piano.

"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reggae"OH SHIT I HAD THAT SINGLE and yeah, I've blacked it out firmly enough that I would be glad to agree that it was atrocious.

 

(Also : I want to hear him do his version of "Veronica".
