Paul McCartney - Love You Forever And FOREVER


Will you be interested in some Raspberry Pie? 
  

"I Will"

Paul McCartney was taken ill in Japan and had to cancel his tours there.  It seems that he is doing better now, thank goodness!  Paul, you are getting older now and I KNOW you love making your music but please, take care of yourself, okay? You know I will love you forever and forever.
I really like this video of young people singing "I Will", it has kept me humming this tune all week, and a very good tune it is by Sir Paul McCartney!  In my early blogging days, one of my followers told me that she had actually MET Paul McCartney at a train station but she did not recognize him but he was a real gentleman. Also, Richard's cousin's husband (got that?) did some work for Sir Paul and he was completely BOWLED over by his charm!  He brought the men out cups of tea and sat down with them! I ask you, isn't that wonderful?  Now, are all of you going to have a good weekend?  I WILL!!  (And it is a long weekend in the USA, it is a holiday on Monday, Memorial Day, a special day of Remembrance.)

  1. Kay as you know I was brought up in Liverpool as a contemporary of The Beatles and although I was at Quarry Bank at the same time as John Lennon the nearest I ever got to Paul (who went to our rival grammar school) was when they were playing at The Cavern. John Lennon was an unusual person but, by all accounts, Paul was the most grounded of people. I, as one of very many, wish him a speedy recovery.

    1. Thanks very much, I am so pleased to have a comment from a Liverpool lad! It seems to me that very often, people prefer either John or Paul but I love them both. We can only guess and wonder what music John could have created for us, I am still angry about his murder in 1980.
      We only have two Beatles left to us, I hope that Paul and Ringo know how much they are loved, by me anyway!

  2. Celebrities can be true pains...British people are so charming! Even in Nashville, where everyone is supposedly friendly, country music stars can be true divas, but it seems many British celebs are genuinely respectful, polite, humble people. Of course, there are exceptions...

    1. Yes! If you read my blog, you will see how much I agree with you abut the charm of the Brits!

  3. Thank you Stephanie - what a nice comment. Some of us Brits try hard to be gentlemen and ladies and certainly my experience of celebrities, mainly sporting and pop ones, has always been excellent. That includes sports-persons from all around the world.

    1. I have already done a post about the Beatles and even though I love them all, I had to admit that George was my favorite too.

  9. My ex and I saw him live in his "Wings Over the World" tour back in the mid-seventies. It was very good concert. My ex was, and still is a bigger fan of The Beatles (and Wings) than I was; but, of course, they did make some wonderful music that will stay around forever. They were unique. It's 50 years in a few weeks times since The Beatles came to our Aussie shores in 1964 and the crowds went wild. :)

    It seems like only yesterday....imagine that! :)

    1. In this country, it was WINGS ACROSS AMERICA tour that I saw in the 70's! It was wonderful, I think the best concert that I ever saw...to have Paul sitting with just his guitar and singing "Yesterday". Wow. and it seemed just like yesterday for me as well!

    1. Oh yes, it is called the Whitsun holiday for you, isn't it? Or I think it used to be, they might not let you call it that now. Hope you had a nice long weekend! xx

  12. It's so nice to hear how nice Sir Paul is to people, with his success and fame, he could easily have become arrogant and stuck up. Sir Paul - you heard her! Take it easy & be careful!

  17. Good version of I Will. I was intrigued enough to look up Patreon to find out who they are. Watched a programme here recently about woman and art which was interesting. Women artists had a hard time in the1960s getting any recognition as their place was still judged to be cooking in the kitchen and cleaning the home.The famous Sgt Pepper's cover was created jointly by Peter Blake and Jann Haworth from a rough drawing by Paul but she never gets a credit except on the original cover. Lichtenstein and Warhol are household names everywhere yet Marisol and Martha Rosler ( who were very big in the 1960s pop art movement in the USA) never get a mention. All the important artists listed today are all men yet as many women artists were putting on exhibitions during the 1960s and were well known at that time. It's only now with the internet people are re-discovering them. I never thought about it much myself until I watched this retrospective. It's true what they say about the Romans. History is written by the winners of any battle. In this case it was a 1960s battle of the sexes and the men won. Hope you are having a nice holiday.
    Incidentally Kay, Katy Perry was the headliner in Glasgow yesterday at a massive concert here on Glasgow Green and put on a great show with loads of special effects, American razzamatazz, firework displays and elaborate Hollywood sets( which was not that slutty to my mind :o) Just thought you'd like to know :o)

    1. I had only ever heard the name of Peter Blake associated with the cover of Sgt. Pepper. Funny you should tell me this...just recently I found out that the famous SWOOSH on the NIKE brand was created by a woman! It made me laugh when I think of all the muscular guys wearing NIKE shoes and clothing and they have no idea that SWOOSH (it looks like a checkmark to me) is by a woman! HA! I know it might not be art but your comment made me think of it. The same is true for a lot of history, that is why you have to read a lot and to a lot of research and quite a bit of reading between the lines.
      KP!! AHHH!!! I am going to forgive you for mentioning that woman, but only because I like you...American razzamatazz, hmmm....I am thinking I don't want to claim her as a fellow countrywoman!! Glad you enjoyed it. BILLIONS could love her but I will not be in that bunch! :-)

  18. This did make me smile because I've always loved Paul and I joke that he should have married me when he had the chance! (Don't ask me when that was!) My husband's family is related (distantly) to Ringo Starr...whose last name is really "Starkey"...same as mine! See, aren't we all connected along the line of life somewhere?

    1. Oh! I have a book for you..."The Love You Make" by Peter Brown...it is wonderful book about the Beatles and I have to tell you, RINGO Starr (Richard Starkey, real name!) comes across as the BEST. Honestly, I will him love him forever and forever too! xx

  19. Lovely memories...I was so happy to read about him bringing out cups of tea and chatting with the men working for him. Happy Memorial Day, Kay!

  20. Dear Kay, you know the special relationship I have with the Beatles' music, and I am still carefully avoiding listening to them unless I really am ready for a good cry.
    On a lighter note, I'll be off to England to see my Yorkshire family on Friday and am very much looking forward to that!

    1. Yes, I know how much your husband loved the Beatles, I always think of you when I hear them now.
      I am so glad that you will be visiting in Yorkshire again! I still think you should read the books by James Herriot, he made me fall in love with Yorkshire and I have never been there.

    1. Oh! I am so glad that your nephew recorded "I Will". It is such a great song! You know, if you change the words, it makes a good lullaby for a baby.
