POLL Those Years Ago: The Beatles Solo Careers Poll Results Thread

here we go!

Some general stats:
- A whopping 476 individual tracks received votes
- Not surprisingly, the general split between members had a lot to do with the volume of their respective outputs. In terms of songs they played on that got votes, Paul had 232, John had 117, George had 119 and Ringo had 58.
- In terms of overall points McCartney was again favored just by virtue of the fact that so many of his songs were voted for. So in terms of the points allotted to songs they played on, Paul had 47,173, John had 42,892, George got 34,472, and Ringo got 32,013.

Bear in mind these statistics have little bearing on where songs actually place in the poll results. I'm going to roll these out pretty fast, starting from 100.

"what a bastard the world is" is just perfect songwriting and storytelling

flamenco blorf (BradNelson), Monday, 4 June 2018 16:45 (four months ago) Permalink

YES! Two Paul songs that I would have voted for 'Calico Skies' and 'Getting Close', and one John that I would have voted for 'Oh My Love' - which is way too low. I really should have submitted that ballot.

pretty irritated that this beat the above Yoko tune, I must say. A worse song in every way imho.

'Mull of Kintyre' is an absolute classic - brilliant song, and a million-seller in the UK too. No way is 'Monkberry Moon Delight' better.

fair exchange for “give peace a chance” even appearing. also i assume most ballots weren’t full of yoko songs

“mull of kintyre” is good

comments claim Screamin' Jay said Paul had written the song with him in mind, which makes a lot of sense really

And Im like, "Well, yeah, she was. After she refused George Martin's invitation to join in 1962, she consoled herself with dating Paul a couple years, after which she joined on second wind."

Lennon could've played Harrison's slide part himself, so I don't doubt he recruited Harrison on purpose.

In the mid sixties, dropping acid like Tic Tacs, he'd hole up in his Weybridge house but he was always recording shit.

when i was writing abt
lennon/ono blues and politics 68-71-ish earlier in the month, my takeaway was honestly being a bit startled how MUCH they got done in that period: several LPs, several art-pol stunts, gallery stuff, as well as getting the beatle divorce sorted and moving to america

It's good -- very much in keeping with Paul's other acoustic numbers throughout the 70s, which are almost all aces:

Mama's Little Girl: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ACW8TUEqUw
Love In Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LcSIS_h1gE
I'm Carrying: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkrIg1d_s58

We're Open Tonight isn't quite in those songs' league, as it's a bit more slight, but still very good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pclzML3LW8w

So this poll led me down a solo Beatle rabbit hole and I watched this last night:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/B07938WKMW

Any Amazon Prime members here might really enjoy it. It follows J & P throughout the seventies and features Klaus Voorman, Denny Laine and whole other host of ex-Wings members.

Thanks Darin - enjoyed this despite every single one of the talking heads being an old white guy! The ex-bandmates were fine, but some of the rock writers I could do without (sorry, Xgau).

Ended up watching the others in the series (which covers 1958-1980) too.

Just discovered this Paul McCartney solo podcast by accident – it's surprisingly good, hosted by two real McCartneyheads who go through one album an episode (or two). Have only listened to the Ram ones so far but I learned a lot.

From the email that went out:

Sharing a title with one of Paul’s own paintings, Egypt Station is the first full album of all-new McCartney music since 2013’s international chart-topping NEW. Preceded by two of its tracks just released as double A-sides - plaintive ballad 'I Don’t Know' and raucous stomper 'Come On To Me' - Egypt Station was recorded between Los Angeles, London and Sussex, and produced (with the exception of one Ryan Tedder track) by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beck, Foo Fighters).

Of the forthcoming album’s enigmatic title, Paul says, “I liked the words ‘Egypt Station.’ It reminded me of the ‘album’ albums we used to make... 'Egypt Station' starts off at the station on the first song and then each song is like a different station. So it gave us some idea to base all the songs around that. I think of it as a dream location that the music emanates from.”

True to the inspiration behind its title, Egypt Station ’s 14 songs combine to convey a unique travelogue vibe. Between the opening and closing instrumentals 'Station I' and 'Station II', each song finds Paul capturing a place or moment before transporting the listener seamlessly to the next destination. Stops along the way include an acoustic meditation on present day contentedness ('Happy With You'), a timeless anthem that would fit on virtually any album of any McCartney era ('People Want Peace'), and an epic multi-movement closer clocking in at seven minutes with a song suite structure harkening back to the days of Paul’s previous combos ('Despite Repeated Warnings'). The result is a kaleidoscopic journey through myriad musical locales and eras, yet firmly rooted in the here and now - with Paul’s singular unmistakeable melodic and lyrical sensibility serving as a guide.

"I Don't Know" almost sounds like the tune Jimmy Fallon says he tried to pitch him, around 4 min in this video:

Of the forthcoming album’s enigmatic title, Paul says, “I liked the words ‘Egypt Station.’

Stops along the way include an acoustic meditation on present day contentedness ('Happy With You'), a timeless anthem that would fit on virtually any album of any McCartney era ('People Want Peace'), and an epic multi-movement closer clocking in at seven minutes with a song suite structure harkening back to the days of Paul’s previous combos ('Despite Repeated Warnings').

True, but other times he's aimed for the "Abbey Road" style medley, it's come up short.

Alfred, that McCartney interview you posted is amazing.

I know we all hate James Cordon and he's the worst thing about this but it is rather charming, even if Paul does tell the story of Let it Be for the 56000th time.

my mom was on a trip visiting Liverpool last week and when they got on the Magical Mystery Tour bus the driver was like, "Paul actually just hopped onto the bus a few days ago". gg imagine that!

that's p close to how i'd rank them myself -- i've definitely played his debut more than anything else he ever did.
