Goner Message Board / ???? / In Defense of Paul McCartney

I was just listening to his first two solo records, and you know what they are really fucking good


How can you resist "Maybe I'm Amazed"?

"Every Night", "Teddy Boy", "Too Many People", "Uncle Albert", and "Long Haired Lady" are pretty killer too.
Posted: Mar 13, 2009 1:55 pm
 
Yeah, I love Ram. Too Many People & Smile Away are some good shit.
Posted: Mar 13, 2009 2:06 pm
 
thats when he wasnt so "douchey". I like Ram.

The Admiral needs no defense.

Wings > Beatles.

I heard the worst thing imaginable today in the children's book area at the bookstore today, it was a Beatles song, Happy Birthday to be exact, sung by a prepubescent boy in a ska-style complete with "pickitup pickitup pickitup".

I'm pretty famously not a lover of Sir Paul, but did really like Ram. But, doesn't Too Many People sound suspiciously like Harry Nillsson? Also, Back Seat of My Car?
Loved Band on the Run, though. Even listened to a few songs on Venus and Mars! Magneto and Titanium Man was pretty fun riding the Bartlett backroads.

not even close.

Paul, early on, had his moments with Wings.
But without John their to bounce ideas around with, and to act
as some sort of a filter of what to release, his abilites and
quality of work diminished.
--Same with John though, they worked well together.

wrong, wrong, wrong...

John was an annoying harpie.

The Wings stand supreme over that band the Beatles.


1985 is so much better than "You Better You Bet"

You guys are all fags. Paul was barely acceptable before they killed him and replaced him with an android.

Posted: Mar 14, 2009 7:56 am
 
Wings >> Steely Dan

Live and Let Die, Bra!!!
Posted: Mar 14, 2009 8:22 am
 
paul mccartney
most under-rated bass player and all around musician ever
just cuz he's sappy and music-hall oriented
the dude still wrote
can't buy me love
helter skelter
oh darling
yesterday
i saw her standing there
why don't we do it in the road
same guy wrote all those songs
AND maybe i'm amazed and jet and girlschool and helen wheels and the list goes on and on

i mean... ANYONE anywhere, try to top that.
he gets a pass
even for working with wacko jacko
Posted: Mar 14, 2009 8:29 am
 
Let me Roll It

Yes, yes
Posted: Mar 14, 2009 8:29 am
 
helen wheels

A wonderful piece of music.
Posted: Mar 14, 2009 8:30 am

100% true.
Posted: Mar 14, 2009 10:23 am
 
Magneto and Titanium Man


One of his best.
Posted: Mar 14, 2009 10:24 am
 
"Beware My Love" from Wings At The Speed Of Sound is also good, especially the live version from Wings Over America.
Posted: Mar 14, 2009 10:36 am
 
Wings >> Steely Dan

Disagree.

King of the World >> Anything Linda McCartney ever did.
Posted: Mar 14, 2009 11:23 am
 
steely dan SUCK.

I like it when Craig Ferguson mentions him and they show a pic of Angela Lansberry. Priceless.

Wings suck, mostly on account of Linda.

and plastic ono band was better because of yoko?

john & paul - tit for tat on the second wife as band-mate thing if you ask me
Posted: Mar 15, 2009 3:50 am
 
No plastic ono band sucks too, but we're talking about sir paul.

Beatles mostly good. Wings mostly bad. Paul solo all bad.

You're an idiot.

MOTO > Beatles
Posted: Mar 15, 2009 7:40 pm
 
Paul solo all bad

alas, i cannot agree with this and he's not even my fave beatle.

i love george harrison; always have.
now his solo work after all things must pass
that's all bad
and i hate to say it.

mccartney on the other hand... much more listenable, to my ears
Posted: Mar 15, 2009 8:16 pm

yeah, I remember that fucking hippy assistant manager I used to have who said that first Plastic Ono Band album would be great if Yoko would just shut the fuck up; which is rather missing the point- so a supersized bag of dicks each for the pair of you, then
Posted: Mar 15, 2009 8:18 pm
 
I haven't listened to any McCartney in quite some time, but the only LPs of his I still own are McCartney and Ram; and I actually do have an Uncle Albert

What solo stuff is good? I'm not talking about wings, but such gems as Ebony and Ivory.

Although I have to look past Jeff Lynne's heavy handed production, I really like the songs on Cloud Nine...and the last one Brainwashed was good too.
Posted: Mar 16, 2009 8:15 am
 
^ Jeff Lynne better hair than Brian May..?? you decide.
Posted: Mar 16, 2009 8:23 am
 
i like bits and pieces of all their respective solo work (even Ringo!), hate a good bit of it, too.

but i saw Paul & Ringo on some interview about a year ago and i'm here to tell you that the two douchiest ones survived.
Posted: Mar 16, 2009 6:50 pm
 
carney
good mccartney solo stuff
the eponymous first album
ram
flowers in the dirt
the stuff w/ elvis costello
flaming pie
run devil run (OK OK - its mostly covers, but he's a great interpreter)
Posted: Mar 17, 2009 11:06 am
 
flowers in the dirt



Damn Theresa. Forgot about Flowers In The Dirt. That was a good record.
Posted: Mar 17, 2009 7:10 pm
 
and the tour he did in support of that record... that show was AWESOME
Posted: Mar 17, 2009 7:16 pm
 
MOTO > Beatles

Amen. Too bad they haven't been as influential.

I love the song "Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five" from Band On The Run, but my favorite Beatle songs are turning out to be the ones George Harrison wrote.
Posted: Mar 19, 2009 3:42 pm
 
His first name is really James.

"Getting Closer" from Back To The Egg is one of my fave McCartney tunes.
Posted: Mar 19, 2009 3:44 pm

I always liked "Blow Away" from the 1979 self-titled album.

This would explain a lot...

He WAS the Walrus afterall
Posted: Mar 20, 2009 1:55 pm
 
Man's got a way with a tune though.

"Getting Closer" from Back To The Egg is still one of my fave McCartney tunes.
Posted: Mar 22, 2009 3:24 am

I like "Every Night" from the first solo album.
