UPDATE: Sir Paul McCartney reads You Just Made My List!

Published by at 12:21 pm under Crappy Music

Thank God Paul McCartney took my criticism to heart and improved that horrible guitar sound used in the original recording of “Get Back.” When he performed last night on David Letterman it sounded MUCH better. Thanks Paul!

Hey Paul, do you leave comments under the name “Joe” by any chance?

Enjoy while you can, this will be removed from youtube soon.

    I am very impressed…

    No, seriously. I am.

    Can’t you tell?

    Oh i bet you’d spread those rosey cheeks fast if I was McCartney. such a fucking whore, lucky for you i dont leave fingerprints, but you’ll be getting a nice donkey punch wake up call to the eyebrow in a couple days.

    Joe – WTF are you ever talking about????? To put it in 1990’s lingo, you are definitely cramping listy’s style.

    I still prefer the muffled, moth-eaten guitar solo of the original, but this was a respectable version, and Paul McCartney seems not to embarrass himself performing, unlike many of his generation still onstage.

    Joe, isn’t a donkey punch delivered to the back of the skull? Listman will see it coming and fend off the blow if you aim for the eyes. He’s quick.

    Paul – I was thinking the same thing about Sir Paul, he really still pretty much rocks. I was trying to imagine what Elvis would be like today if he was alive and I can only picture a total train wreck. Paul, on the other hand, still has it.

    I saw McCartney play back in April at Coachella. It was a great show and reportedly his most rocking ever. I loved it. I will watch that one last time when I get home.

    Elvis was already a train wreck when he crossed over. Maybe if he’d gotten off the pills and changed his diet, he could’ve turned it around, and some kindly producer might have restored him to his glory, like the late Memphis period! On the other hand, Mick Jagger gives me pains to watch because he still tries to prance around like he’s twenty when he’s closing in on seventy. His reformed junkie cast-off girlfriend Marianne Faithfull has done a far better job managing to evolve into a still-working senior citizen.

    Not to get too mushy, but this kind of gives me chills. It’s amazing to see this 22 year old kid who had no idea of the life he was about to lead, 45 years ago in the same spot where he sat with Dave last night. There’s just something very cool about that to me.

    That was a great clip. I forget how fresh-faced and mop-topped the Beatles really were, and I miss George! And that song… It’s been covered so many times I thought I’d never want to hear it again, until jazz singer/pianist Shirley Horn put it on her final album and sang it as a lonesome reflection at life’s end. It was sort of like when the Langley Schools Music Project did The Long and Winding Road, sung by a child who had barely even hit the road. I felt like I was hearing the music and lyrics for the first and the millionth time at once, and they made me appreciate the songs and the Beatles like I did way back in the day. It’s okay to get mushy.

    Along those lines, the version of “Desperado” on the Langley album is the definitive version of that song. How does a 10 year old manage to cut through all the crap and sound like she has lived a lifetime of pain?

  11. Paul in St. Paulon 16 Jul 2009 at 5:21 pm

    Yes, Desperado was never more mournful. I heard an interview with the woman who sang it as a child and she said she really just heard it as a sad song; she didn’t really get the actual lyrics. The choral God Only Knows is pretty wondrous. And back to Sir Paul, I love their version of Band on the Run. Never has the unpredictably timed crash of cymbals been more endearing.

  12. You Just Made My List!on 16 Jul 2009 at 5:38 pm

    Yeah, I pretty much love every song on that album. VH1 did a reunion special with the Langley kids (adults) about 5 years ago. I’m so thankful odd things like that exist.

    I just saw him a few days ago in Halifax NS and I was impressed. His face looks like it’s melting but other than that he was, dare I say, awesome.

    a donkey punch is a slap with my penis. a mushroom stamp if you will.

  15. Paul in St. Paulon 17 Jul 2009 at 8:46 am

    Joe, and maybe everyone else should stop reading here, perhaps there is some regional variation with the donkey punch. I have understood it to mean in Minnesota Nice terms, during anal sex, a sharp blow to the back of the skull by the fucker to the fucked, just before the fucker comes, so that the anal sphincter of the fucked will automatically tighten around the penis as it unloads. This version of the donkey punch seemed to fall more within the plans you have for Listman.

    The interweb also includes a funny variation, wherein the top asks the bottom just before coming, “Who’s the boss?” with the bottom presumably answering, “You.” Then the top donkey punches the bottom and says, “Tony Danza!” and then comes.

    But now I’ve spoiled that one. Listman might probably would have thought instantly of the eighties sitcom, even as you rape him, and answered “Tony Danza” anyway.

    Boy, this Paul McCartney post has really taken an interesting turn.

    I think Paul is right about the Donkey Punch.

    I am a fan of the “Houdini” or the “David Copperfield” personally.

    oh, yea i like that definition better.
