Song facts

In 2007, while promoting his new album “Memory Almost Full“, Paul McCartney did a TV interview during which he improvised a song. The few lyrics sung by Paul have later been used to create a tune by Beatles enthusiast Iamaphoney. As explained on a blog covering the work of this enthousiast:

While promoting “Memory Almost Full,” Paul McCartney did an interview with one of the cutest girls on the planet. On “15 Big Ones” she cajoled him into making up a song on the spot with her.

Iamaphoney has taken this scrap of a tune and turned it into something quite enjoyable that would make a nice B-Side to any McCartney single. I think the production values are outstanding and that many would be fooled. Maybe that’s the part of this thing that some people don’t like. “Shoes” has been added to a site that someone not familiar with the Iamaphoney adventure would think is a legitimate Paul McCartney site.

Yes, that is a bit misleading. If Paul saw this, I don’t know if he would get angry or ask Iamaphoney to produce his next album.

Lyrics

This is what you got to choose
Shoes
That's what you've got to choose
High heels for me
But I'm tall you'll see
I need something to make me
I need something to make me

Small...
