Free Macca Track
(and Ringoâs Snack Attack)
Saturday, August 08, 2009
For a limited time, if you really want it, you can download a free MP3 file of the song âGreat Dayâ from the Paul McCartney album Flaming Pie, now scoring the title sequence of the new Adam Sandler film Funny People. All itâll cost you is being added to a Paul McCartney mailing list.
Okay, maybe you think a free Paul McCartney song isnât the coolest thing to have, or to admit to having (youâre not quite wrong; itâs not the coolest thing, but itâs certainly not the most uncool â although youâre welcome to think that if you must). And perhaps being on the receiving end of regular Paul McCartney info updates is too big a price to pay to have it. But rest assured, the most uncool Beatles-related thing is not a Paul McCartney song. Not even â as so many people seem to want to cite as evidence for the prosecution â the one about Rupert Bear (âWe All Stand Togetherâ). Nor the other one about Rupert Bear (Târopic Island Humâ)!
No, the most uncool Beatles-related thing is this ad that Ringo Starr did for Pizza Hut.
âPeace and love! Peace and love!â you reckon, Ringo? More like âLove a piece! Love a piece!â And as for the âwrong ladsâ â kinda cute. But the Monkles are no Whotles.
