Paul McCartney’s Mix-CD For New Girlfriend A Little Self-Indulgent

From The Onion, June 7, 2006

LONDON—The mix-CD that ex-Beatle Paul McCartney created for Steffina Graves, his new girlfriend, is a “sweet gesture,” but “limited in terms of variety,” according to the 27-year-old Graves. “‘Baby I’m Amazed’ may be great, but I don’t know if anyone needs two different versions,” Graves said Tuesday. “And I’m not sure anybody really liked ‘Say Say Say.’” Graves, however, praised the psychedelic, Sgt. Pepper-inspired collage of McCartney photos on the CD cover and booklet as “very creative,” and noted that “At least the CD has one Badfinger song on it, even if it is a cover of ‘Love Me Do.’”


PS – Note to self: DO NOT change picks for the World Cup pool right before the game. Sweden and Trinidad & Tobago will then TIE, you would have been RIGHT and gloriously IN THE LEAD, but you changed it in a moment of doubt. Dah!


  • The Badfinger song “Love Me Do” (written by Joey Molland), is not the Lennon/McCartney “Love Me Do”…

  • . . . and the Onion is a satirical newspaper, side3. Its writers can always say that they were joking (and maybe they’re as smart as you are).

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
