    Yes, that one is actually my favourite. I linked 'the man' because it's mostly very unknown since it was featured on Paul McCartney solo album 'pipes of peace'.

    Hahaha yeah I thought it was
    Good album, but not his best. I can't choose between Band on the Run and Venus and Mars....
    But I think Red Rose Speedway is underrated - he should've included Hi Hi Hi and C'Moon in the album though....

    lol, impossible not my taste. But I do know everythng about MJ (apart from what you just corrected me on xD). Unreleased music my famous artists interests me do you know if the Beatles have any songs left to be released or is everything out? By 'released' I mean songs that have also not been leaked.

    I'm sure there must be! But I'm not aware of the ones that they didn't either release as singles or in any albums.... A lot of songs they did write and were used by other artists and never by the beatles themselves. John and Paul did have a jam session in 1974 which was the last known time they played together - but they were both high as ****.
    But yeah, I can't help you I'm afraid - although I'd put my house on there being some.

    I see, but the beatles did break up about 40 years ago, i'd imagine the Beatles estate vault would be similar to Elvis' (who im a fan of) estate who is now just pumping out alternative takes off songs and concert soundboards. What Paul songs would you recommend to me? Out of curiosity just listened to the b-side of 'say say say' imagining to be the worst thing i've heard but it was actually good 'ode to a koala bear'

    Band on the run as an album is great - and the single band on the run is pretty good too. Although you might need to bare with it, it's like 3 songs in 1.
    Maybe I'm amazed, no more lonely nights, uncle albert/admiral halsey, coming up (this made Lennon come out of retirement), live and let die, mull of kintyre, ebony and ivory, silly love songs, nineteen hundred and eighty five, venus and mars/rock show.
    I could go on..... You can probably tell

    From what I've heard, he's alright but I wouldn't put him in the same league as Macca.

    This is wrong. You shouldn't be comparing Lennon and McCartney, two absolute legends, because they're a partnership.

    John Lennon is my hero. I prefer his songs, they aren't as 'nice'.

    Lennon constantly tried to challenge the boundaries of music. Listen to 'Tomorrow Never Knows', 'Rain' and 'I Feel Fine'.
