Sir Paul, They Say it’s Your Birthday! [VIDEOS]
Wow, hard to believe that Paul McCartney is 71? No, that can’t be right? I’ve been a Beatle fan since I was 6 years old. The Beatles had already broken up, but I didn’t care.
My favorite Beatle has always been Paul. I love all the Beatles, but there is something about Paul!
People ask me what is my favorite Beatle song or Paul McCartney song…tough question! As soon as I say one, then I think of another song, then another!
I will say my very first favorite song was Hey Jude. I was only about 3 when it came out on the radio, but yes I remember it and I remember loving it!!
Another favorite, the B-side of the single Help…I’m Down. This one really should have been an A-side!
My favorite Paul McCartney song of all time really has to be Mull of Kintyre. The song, released in November of 1977, was the first single to sell over two million copies in the UK and according to Wikipedia:
was the UK’s best-selling single of all-time (passing The Beatles‘ own “She Loves You“) until overtaken by Band Aid‘s “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” in 1984 (which also featured McCartney on the B-Side). The song remains the UK’s best-selling completely non-charity single. (Queen‘s “Bohemian Rhapsody” has sold more in its two releases, but the profits of the 1991 release went to charity.)
I love the video too because it gives us a glimpse of Paul’s farm in Scotland!
Happy Birthday Paul!!!
