On You Tube many commenters said they cried during this song, and that many in the audience were. I sure did. This one always gets to me, anyway, because it is an extremely moving tribute to John Lennon (and I always think of my brother Gerry, too (who died of leukemia in 1998). In concert it was simply overwhelming. The cheering at the beginning was for John Lennon, after Paul mentioned his name.

I was curious what songs Paul did in his previous show, that he didn't do at this concert. They are as follows:

July 16: Yankee Stadium, New York City:

Magical Mystery Tour
I'm Looking Through You
I Saw Her Standing There

McCartney hasn't written a good song in the last 20 years and can't sing any more.

It's time for him to retire.

Christopher Lake said...

Neil, have you heard McCartney's "Memory Almost Full" CD, and his recording under the name, The Fireman, "Electric Arguments"? Both of these discs were filled with great songs and showed his voice to be in great shape. (In my opinion.)

Dave Armstrong said...

I was of the opinion that Electric Arguments was the best solo Beatles album of all four Beatles. Got a paper on my blog about it. The reviews on amazon are ecstatic . . .
