Several days ago on Facebook, we asked what song should be added to Paul McCartney's 2014 Out There! Tour. The question was sparked, in part, by our desire, however unlikely, to hear “Mull of Kintyre” in the U.S., which will probably happen when pigs fly.
Some of the responses were predictable, but some were surprising. “Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey,” which has been mentioned in the past, was named by more than one person, but also mentioned were songs like “Rocky Raccoon,” “Girls School,” “Junior's Farm,” “Daytime Nighttime Suffering,” “Beware My Love,” “Ballroom Dancing” (another favorite of ours), “Biker Like an Icon,” “Jenny Wren,” “My Brave Face,” “You Gave Me the Answer,” and “Boil Crisis.” And we get some support for "Mull." (Yay!)
In any event, we built a survey online at Survey Monkey where you can rank your choices from a list of 42 songs. Please choose 10 songs by clicking the boxes. The survey will close at 5 p.m. ET April 18, the day before the first 2014 Out There! show in Montevideo, Uruguay.
