Hidden gems

Postby Brains » Fri Apr 12, 2002 4:30 am

Paul's songs that you think no one has ever really noticed before, but that you really love. Here are some of mine:

- Momma Miss America. Instrumental from "McCartney". Actually a great rocker. It was on the Jerry Maguire soundtrack too, along with Singalong Junk. I love those instrumentals (Lunchbox/Odd Sox, Heather)
- Single Pigeon. Well, not the entire song, but the first two verses. The "me too" part is not so strong.
- Country Dreamer. B-side of Helen Wheels. Probably written in just as long as it took to play it. Still, it's a nice little song. Nice, very pleasurable.
- Rainclouds. B-side of some single from Tug Of War, Take It Away maybe? I don't remember. The song Paul was working on when he heard John was shot. Great song, kinda Irish-sounding in the solo.
- Loveliest Thing. I think it was recorded for Return To Pepperland, an unreleased album from 1987, later issued as a b-side. Always makes me think about the girl I like liking me back.

Well, there are more where these came from, can't think of them right now. Tell me about your hidden gems!

Mrs. Vanderbelt - ho, hey, ho, and the great bass line. Really love that one.

On the Way - nice guitar riff, great echo on the vocal

Summer's Day Song - wow, moody, eclectic little number, pretty cool

Love in Song - I like this one, why, i don't know

Bluebird (live on Wings over America) - i like the rhytm box on that one.

When the night (live from Wings over Sweden) - A silly song but i love the way he hits the note on the end and his voice cracks.

Letting go (Live Wings over America) - It freakin' ROcks!

With a little Luck (Demo version) - Cool just him and the bass playing along an overdub synth part.

Don't let it bring you down - cool song when depressed

Winter Rose - One of the most under-rated Macca ballads

So Bad - under-rated ballad

Good Times Coming (bootleg off Pizza and fairy tales) - a cool track with an unmixed version

Christian Pop - (piano solo off Pizza and fairy tales) - great piano instrumental, very innovative

Beautiful Night (1987 version) great track

Calico Skies - Great song! He knew Linda was dying when he wrote this..

What you're doing - (bootleg version) - John and Paul singing out of tune but raw with little or no insturments - great harmoney even out of tune

This is so hard for me because I think he has a ton of hidden gems, even though they aren't really hidden!! The masses just have a total misconception when it comes to Paul McCartney!! Here are some that I like,
Cafe On The Left Bank - if he did this one live it would flat out
rock !
It's not true - The original version that was on the back of the
Press single!
Motor Of Love - I love anytime Paul sings in a soulful gospel
style!
Souvenir - Blue eyed soul at it's best!
Girlschool - Paul proving once again that he rocks!
So Glad To See You Here - How could this one be missed?
I'll stop right here or I'll name everything!!
