Sir Paul Gives His Regards to Broadway

For the benefit of those who caught the excellent appearance by Paul McCartney on the 'Late Show with David Letterman' last night and were left scratching your head with the second song he performed, here is a quick synopsis:

The Fireman is the moniker given to electronic music experiments created by McCartney and Youth that date back to 1993. The song from Letterman's show, "Sing the Changes", is from their latest, 'Electric Arguments', released in 2008. McCartney and Youth have done at least three records together, and I can vouch that their latest is among McCartney's best of the last two decades. I'm sure there were lots of viewers screaming for another Fab Four classic, but I thought his selection was inspired. FYI: For those who saw him live on the street, they did get a second Beatles song... "Helter Skelter".
