Paul McCartney Played a Couple of Rare Numbers Last Night at Irving Plaza

Share

Last night. Paul McCartney’s set list (thanks to Setlist.fm) included a couple of rarities. One was “Every Night” the magnificent song from his “McCartney” album that’s been covered a lot, particularly by Phoebe Snow. Paul sings it maybe once a decade. The other rarity is “Another Day,” his hit single from 1971, right before the “Ram” album came out but was not included. John Lennon once chided Paul in song that he was “just another day” but in fact the song is a gem, Lennon was just good at rhyming and pushing Paul’s buttons after the Beatles broke up. Paul also sang Buddy Holly’s “It’s So Easy” because he loves it, and because he owns the publishing. Hopefully they’ll release a video or CD or something of this show.
