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)."

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