Paul's Set List
Well, there hasn’t been a rant in a while. Must be the summer sillies. Or are we all ranted out? Well I know I’m not.
My newest complaint is probably quite silly, but I don’t care. My rant is such:
Why does Paul feel the need to play such Beatles’ heavy sets now? WHY?
He’s got nearly 50 years of fantastic music that he’s written to draw from, so why does it seem over the last couple tours/concerts over the last few years he feels the need to perform so many Beatle songs? Don’t get me wrong, I obviously LOVE The Beatles, else I wouldn’t be here, but honestly I love Wings too, and I love Paul’s solo work, so I don’t know why he doesn’t draw more from those eras.
His secret concert in London? He played 18 songs, 11 of which were Beatle songs, and 2 Wings songs, 1 solo song, & 4 songs off his new album. It’s been the same pattern over the last few years, but growing steadily more and more Beatle heavy.
I know I shouldn’t complain. I know I should just be happy that the man is still touring and making more music. I mean, who am I to complain about what he plays? Maybe he’s just trying to relive his glory days and remember a happier time what everything that’s going on. Maybe he just really misses John.
