Here's a new Fireman song called "Sing The Changes"
Paul McCartney suffers from the "Prince" syndrome. Exceptionally talented songwriter and musician who releases a bunch of filler along with the great tracks. His music is hit or miss, but when he hits he hits very well.
It's probably easier for a poorer person or new act to have focus and fire than a rich one. A rich & popular person can do whatever they want and not have to worry about being commercial & selling a lot of records as much.I disagree with your view of Prince, because all of his albums from 1980-87 were brilliant albums, with brilliant songs and no filler tracks. I guess what Prince and Paul McCartney do have in common, with that with them both being highly talented, well genius songwriter/musicans who can both play almost every instrument and be a one man studio band. Is that both of them can have been in their careers (Prince post Sign 'O' The Times) complacent and over indulgent and in their own way haven't looked to challenge themselves creatively and lost focus on what made them great in the first place. I think Prince has made some great songs in recent years, and Paul McCartney's made some good music recently with his last two album releases.

Perhaps it is good to the artist, and that's why they put it out. Like Paul releasing "Mary Had A Little Lamb" as a single, lol. Or Prince putting out "The Rainbow Children" an album about the Jehovah's Witnesses. What is good or not is an opinion. The artist feels they can put out the music they really want to make. If The Beatles kept making the music the audience wanted, they would have kept putting out stuff like "She Loves You" and the fans would have eventually gotten bored and moved on. But because they were successful, they could experiment. If they hadn't become successful and rich later records like "Strawberry Fields" or "Within You, Without You" wouldn't have been made.That's very true, but that also can also an artist make music that's not as good as it should and could be.
Well all of The Beatles albums are being remastered now, and are supposedly going to be released sometime this year. If it's like the Yellow Submarine songtrack from a few years ago, then the new versions will be a BIG improvement from the 1987 CD versions or even the original albums. They only had 4 track in the 1960s and a lot of The Beatles stuff had vocals on one speaker and the music on the other. The new version of "Yellow Submarine" has real stereo.*sigh* I've been meaning to get into the Beatles/Paul. Funnily enough, I haven't really heard their music!!! And that's weird for me, cause I love 'classic' music! But I do like Paul and MJ's voices together! it's like magic! lol
I wasnt to impressed with say say say or the girl is mine, he was good in the beatles.
I like them both, but I think "The Man" is better than both of them. Say Say Say is a good dance track, and with dance songs the lyrics aren't really important.I wasnt to impressed with say say say or the girl is mine, he was good in the beatles.
People considered George's solo music "too preachy". Top 40 tends to avoid religion as a topic. It's surprising that "My Sweet Lord" became a hit. Probably the reason is it came out right after the Beatles broke up. It's interesting that initially Mr. Conductor's (Ringo) songs were more popular on the charts than the ones by the other 3.Yeah because John and George cared about the world and making it a better place ^^^.
