Give my regards to Broad Street movie. One of the lowest points in Paul Mccartneys entire creative output.
I would say, the whole `eighties era` was. However not only for Paul, it was the time when most of artists experimented with this knew electronic sound which today sound so awful, poppy plastic-fantastic, its got nothing to do with rock and The Beatles was rock rather than pop (even Wings had some strong, rock songs), just watch any of their shows and you`ll know what I mean.
I like his 80s stuff the best, but then that might have something to do with the fact I bought it all at the time. I was 14 when Broad Street came out. Some of it has aged well, but maybe that’s the reason why, cos it reminds me of being a kid, and I had a great childhood.
For me, i draw a curtain on the years 85-88 on Paul, it ends with ‘The frog song’ (which i’m smart enough to appreciate as a childrens song) and begins again with ‘Flowers’, and it’s only been an upward tragectory from there for ‘me’.
For me it starts with Pipes of Peace (although there are a few little gems on that album) and ends with 1988. That being said, Press to Play has some good little gems on it as well. The only thing going to the Broad Street movie is that there is a good drinking game to go with it. I remember a humor Paul site years ago posted it. I’ll have to look for it again.
I can’t believe I found it so quickly. Here’s the Broad Street drinking game page I was talking about: http://lindas_revenge.tripod.com/unspeakablemccartney/id81.html
I forgot how mean this page was
For me, last good one would be Tug Of War and then nothing till Flowers IN The Dirt;
The Beatles were mostly ‘pop’. Immaculately-inventive, inspired, original, rulebook burning, joyous pop, but still pop. A bit rock in the last year or so.
I like Pipes of Peace.
Flowers in The Dirt was when Paul found his feet again.
Whats a matter, no one likes the Macca/Michael Jackson years ?????????
Back when Broadstreet came out I read somehwere that it was during the filming of the Ballroom Dancing scenes that Paul and the band jammed (oldies) for the crowd in-between takes. Paul hadn’t really played live since late ’79 (I think only briefly during an impromptu jam during the “Take it Away” video in ’82). The interviewer asked Paul when he was going to tour again, and he replied that he had been playing live (“almost like a concert”) for the hundreds of film crew and extras in the Ballroom Dancing scene. Hopefully this got taped/filmed and will appear whenever the deluxe Broadsteet package comes out. It might be the only saving grace from this project.
good comment DaveO, THe Beatles were PoP, perhaps in the studio, while on stage, they could really RoCk hard and this is the part where they ROCK;
