Which probably explains why he doesn't perform anything off of it. I still like "Lonely Road".

All I'm saying is that Paul can't ignore such a big hit. Imagine Paul start singing NMLN in a middle of a live concert, imagine how the crowd will react - they will applaud and sing along.....
Hate to break this to you, but "No More Lonely Nights" was nothing more than a moderate hit for McCartney. Not a bad song--but nowhere near as memorable as most of his other hits and it was hardly the "national anthem" of the 80's.

Except for Linda McCartney and Ralph Richardson, the members of the original cast are still living. I'm thinking Cheryl Crow for Linda's role and David Ogden Stiers for Ralph Richardson's role. This would be a welcome change of pace from the stale concert format.
Considering what a disaster that movie and soundtrack was, I doubt McCartney wants to go anywhere near it.
