Biography

It is the eternal question for an artist of Paul McCartney’s stature: what next? What next when you have… well, that list of achievements, with even the long-touted standards album now ticked off with last year’s ‘Kisses On The Bottom’, hardly needs re-iterating. On one level, you might reasonably think that in terms of awards, honours, sales figures, shows and ... Read more in Amazon's Paul McCartney Store

This was to Paul's Charity Single Release for the Wtc Disaster, but it was Withdrawn at the Last Minute in Favor of his New Song "Freedom"

McCartney reports that about a week before the recording sessions started, he couldn't talk at all. He brings strength and warmth out of a recuperating voice, and finds the precise words and melody for feelings of love newly born from pain. As a critic said of his poetry, McCartney is "always personal, never merely personal," and this is another profoundly unsilly love song.

Wow! This song is an unbelievably good amalgam of classical, jazz, and blues, with Macca singing at the bottom of his range. The song is a perfect match of lyric and melody. I might suggest (and look forward to critical comment) that, if this song is any indication of what else is on "Driving Rain," this may be Macca's best solo release, period.

Paul has taken his music to a higher level above all of us. Beyond the beautiful melody, the bass line, the emotion in his voice, the bridge itself is simply brilliant - how would one express the conflict when on the verge of desperation and knowing that he/she may have a chance to come out of it, to love again? The la, la, la, la, la is his call for Linda (remember Lovely Linda in McCartney?), asking for permission to love again, from a lover to a friend...
It's not your run of the mill love song. It's more than music - it's music complimented by art and vice versa.

From A Love To A Friend is, to put it as mildly as I can, EXCELLENT! This is what song writing should be: terrific lyrics, harmony, performance! This song has everything!

Just wow.

The ONLY good thing to say about this song is that it DOES have a melody. But, what is sorely lacking, is in Paul's vocals. He comes across here as a songwriter who can barely find his own melody....falsetto and very weak. I AM VERY glad to say that this is the WEAKEST song on the Drivin' Rain full-length CD...the other 15 tracks are something to listen to. Case in point, NEVER JUDGE A FULL-LENGTH McCARTNEY CD by the 1st single release. This has been a pattern throughout his career...the SINGLES in no way represent the LP's/CD's and the B-sides were always better than the A sides. Only 2 exceptions: "Another Day" & "Mull of Kintyre"
