Paul McCartney / Early Days video


 

Paul McCartney continues a lifelong habit of picking the wrong songs to promote from his albums. The latest is Early Days – for which he has made a video – from last year’s New. There’s nothing wrong with the song, or the sentiment (although it is a bit earnest), but this acoustic number isn’t half as much fun as On My Way To Work from the same album, which has a similar weren’t-the-old-days-really-cool vibe but has a much witty lyric.

What’s really sad is that the highlight of the record is the amazing Alligator (produced by Mark Ronson) but this has been overlooked (in terms of videos etc.) for the middling Appreciate and the stomping Queenie Eye.

Anyway, check out Alligator and On My Way To Work below, and tell me if you agree!

      Totally Disagree, this is a Great Macca Song ! and Video. McCartney is never too scared to go out on a Limb and try new producers, seek advice + attempt new sounds .

    “I Can Bet” would still make a great single!
