Paul McCartney Songs We Secretly Want to Hear at Minute Maid

Categories: WTF Island

"Vanilla Sky"

Recorded for Cameron Crowe's similarly named mindfuck of a film, this cut gets largely overlooked in McCartney's canon. According to some fan sites, the lyrics were inspired by a waiter bringing McCartney the wrong food. I don't get it either.


"Old Siam, Sir"

This might as well be a Jack White song, you know? This is what Jack White's solo album sounds like. What people call a bad McCartney song would be a good Jack White song. Funny world.


BONUS!!!!!!!!
"Wonderful Christmastime"

Maybe he should play this one just to troll the crowd. Most people will still be so numbed with excitement from seeing a Beatle in concert that they won't care anyway. "Oh man, then he played the Christmas song and it was amazing," your friends will all say, totally unprompted. It's close enough to Christmas.

The B-side of the single was something called "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reggae," which sounds like all kinds of awful.

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".
