New McCartney Song

_______________________________________________________
Update: Yeah, I just spent $25 on a new Paul McCartney song. The song "Lifelong Passion (Sail Away)" is credited to Paul McCartney/Fireman. It is more accessible than previous Fireman material. It has a full set of lyrics, although the vocal has more echo and is lower in the mix than most McCartney songs. It has an Indian flavor, but cleverly features a prominent harmonica.

The chorus goes:
Give me love love love love love love love
Be my lifelong passion
Sail Away Sail Away Sail Away


Is the song worth $25?

Well, it is for a good cause. The song is a nice addition to the McCartney canon. I will definitely give it lots of airplay at home. But if he is going to start charging that much money per song on a regular basis, I think he should bring it to my house personally and stay for lunch.
_______________________________________________________
June 5, 2008, Paul McCartney will be hosting a virtual dinner party at http://www.PaulMcCartney.com and giving away a new song to anyone who gives a donation of $25 to Adopt-A-Minefield. The title of the song is "Lifelong Passion (Sail Away)."

Source Article: NME

I have to give Paul credit for sticking with Adopt-A-Minefield despite the breakdown of his marriage to Heather.

Good hello.
Vince here,

I figured since there were SO MANY comments on the previous post, I'd just continue the conversation here:

On the subject on the absurdly wealthy, Jello Biafra said to think of the rich as drug addicts. There's nothing a drug addicts wants more than.... MORE DRUGS!
Just replace 'drugs' with 'money', and you see the problem.

As far as aja's list of who's here, I'm kinda a little of all those, BUT..... I'd also like to acknowledge the fine job Mr. PHONY has done with these videos, just in terms of the craft of 'horror inducing' elements.
After the success of "The Ring", my wife and I started investigating the whole 'Asian Horror' genre.
Besides the original version of "The Ring", "The Eye", and the wonderfully deranged films of Takishi Miike: "Audition", "Ichi The Killer", "Gozu", just to name a few.
Now, I'm not that big of a horror , but I appreciate the 'art'. It's not The Beatles..... it's not even "The Simpsons", but MR. Phony's pieces are better than "The Blair Witch Project"!

Oh, wait.
Vince, again.

To that anonymous guy who KNOWS people who are very rich:
Are any of them PUBLISHERS?
i've written a novel, and I am currently unemployed....
No, Vince, don't beg........
I'm sorry. That was crass......
Anyway, hope everyone's having a super day!

My novel is about the guy who tried to destroyed Michelangelo's DAVID because a painting told him to do it.........
ok, ok, I'm sorry. No more trying to sell myself.

Vince,

Seeing that you're recently active here, I (km artlu) want to thank you for peddling this addictive and enthralling topic in the schoolyard over at Rigorous Intuition.

The mysteries explored here have tugged at me for decades, and now, thanks to you, my pursuit is much less random.

One thing stands out for me by its absence (as far as I'm able to determine) in the canon.

This dentist who originally dosed George and John:
- such an act was egregiously unethical within the psychedelic community of the era.
- all the more so for a society dentist whose career and professional standing would have been particularly sensitive to his repute as an individual, beyond the quality of his work.

It's always felt odd to me that the incident is remarked upon as a historical milestone...and that's it, no further examination. When in fact such an action was outstandingly risky and unethical.

Is anything (name, history, etc.) known of this person?

And a big thank you to you also, Taf. I was jubilant to have discovered your blog a few days ago.

Doctor Robert?

Peace to you km,
I'm gonna check the "Anthology" book, and "Shout!" to see if the dentists' name really WAS Dr. Robert.
And to the gang here:

http://www.rigorousintuition.ca/board/

and:
http://www.conspiracyarchive.com/

are GREAT places to look for occult/strangeness, they point you in the right direction on further study, outside the Beatle-relm.
They're mighty BIG rabbit holes, but, like I've said, I've written one novel, and am currently doing research for another.
Be it truth or not, it was certainly sparked MY brian.

What do people here think about a PID-themed graphic novella? I think I could make a pretty solid one if I wasn't so concerned about getting lawsuits from Apple and the Beatle estates.

It's a head-scratcher to me how IAAP stays so immune to this concern himself- but then again he's not selling anything for profit, and he may well be operating under an official sponsorship.

Does anybody have any ideas on this? If I could convince myself there was a legal approach to doing it, I think I could pretty easily work up a sample and find a publisher for it. I'd appreciate thoughts, suggestions, and potential collaborators (I would do the art, you would do the writing). Many thanks.

Long live PID.

The dentist's name that gave them the "dreaded lysergic" is given in the Anthology "director's cut". (more like a beta version of the final cut) I can't tell you what it is without watching the thing again, although the timeline could narrow it down I suppose. Or maybe I posted it at NIR, dunno.

Anonymous, you make a good point about someone who is a trained professional giving these famous people LSD when it would be seen as unethical, but then again.. Some no doubt broke away from the ethics because they felt they were doing the recipient a favor, opening up their minds, etc. Also, it may not have been illegal at the time, (yet) a factor that may have weighed in on the decision.

Tafultong said...

Somebody must have been worried about getting sued. The Beatles Anthology book goes to great pains to use only the word "dentist" in sentence after sentence. Even the detail man, Bob Spitz, in his almost 1000-page Beatles biography just says that the unnamed dentist got it from the unnamed manager of the Playboy Club, who got it from Michael Hollingshead.

But last year, Patti Boyd spilled the beans and reported that the dentist's name was John Riley.

Tafultong said...

Vince,

Good luck finding a publisher. I promise I will order that one from Amazon.com.

km urtlu,

Welcome. Thanks for the kind words.

Paulisdeadatlive,

I love the idea of a graphic novella. The Beatles worked with plenty of pre-existing material and put their own spin on it. I'm not just talking about cover songs. Things like "I Feel Fine" and "Run For Your Life" borrowed heavily from other songs. I would certainly hope that nobody "official" would stand in your way.

Thank you for the vote of confidence, Tafultong. I hope it wasn't too tacky of me to solicit this on your blog!

For some reason I cannot access the paulisdead email account anymore, so if anyone is interested in contacting me about this please use the "turnmeondeadman" at live dot com address instead!

I wonder if the Fireman credit lends any credence to the IAAP=PM theory...

No. Iamaphoney is a musician from Denmark. It's not a big secret.

Thanks for the welcome and (finally!) a name for the dentist of myth and lore.

All I was able to find of him was that he'd died in 1986.

Like so many of the curious facts surrounding Beatle history, this one may be destined to lead nowhere. It would be worthy of note were it to someday be revealed that our Dr. Riley had, for example, at some point in his earlier life served with Military Intelligence. Barring such a discovery, there remains only speculation.

As one who was lucky enough to have been young and adventurous in the Sixties, I can attest to the fact that the presumed, and later manifest, advocacy of LSD by various Beatles provided significant leverage for its dissemination.

Yeah. That would be news to me, if it were true.

Vince here,
Thanks to Negativland, you MAY be able to make a graphic novel based on this,and, under the FAR USE act, be free from any liability,
AND,
would IAMAPHONY sue someone who sold his MUSIC for money?
Oooo, THAT could be the plot line!
Take it, it's yours.

Hi, I need to buy this song, I have a radio-beatle-show in Mexico City but I can't pay for the track, are you willing to trade "A day in the life" performance by Paul audio from the console for this track?

this is my mail: pepper18@gmail.com

I tried to donate, but the web site that processed the payments kept rejecting my payment for one reason or another.. I finally gave up.

Blizzard also released a Game of the Year Collection in 1998 that contains the original Diablo. The Blizzard Anthology, released in 2000, also contains the original Diablo game. The options for the diablo 3 walkthrough are completely unlike what you seen in Diablo 1 and Diablo 2. This is the reason exactly why no details are available about the online games and the traits for the reason that designers would like buy diablo 3 items to be a diablo 3 items mystery until it will be launched. Heavy rain cancels. No registration required.
