15 Songs, 1 Hour

EDITORS’ NOTES

The 1984 film didn’t fare too well, but this soundtrack album includes the beautiful ballad “No More Lonely Nights” in various versions, with the opening "ballad" version featuring Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour with a trademark guitar solo. The other tracks include re-recordings of songs from Paul McCartney’s long and storied career. While no one needs to hear alternate versions of such Beatles classics as “Yesterday,” “Here, There and Everywhere,” “For No One,” “Good Day Sunshine,” or “Eleanor Rigby,” it’s an interesting adventure for hardcore fans who love to study McCartney’s process. His decision to rerecord Pipes of Peace’s “So Bad” is quizzical, considering the song was relatively new, but the revisit of “Silly Love Songs” (the original being from 1976’s Wings at the Speed of Sound) sounds like McCartney seeing how closely he can replicate the original with modern technology.
