I want to emphasize mostly, relatively newer music, just like on my Monday night show, “Prime Time Theme Attic.” (Monday nights 8PM-10PM ET when it returns.)
Here’s the link for when that day comes: http://rdo.fm/r/4qntu )
But I can promise this: I will not force my selections. If something doesn’t hit me, I won’t post one.
Everything I do has always been about shining a spotlight on the artist and their music.
Now I will have the potential to shine 365 more spotlights if I want to!

Regardless of everything going on in the world that is way more important than my daily post, I will continue, nonetheless, in case someone is looking for a few minutes of respite.
Paul McCartney released his 17th solo album, “Egypt Station,” in 2018.
It followed a similar pattern that has been in place pretty much since his first release: It’s loaded with a ton of songs of various quality.
Some tracks automatically stuck out as brilliant while others not necessarily so.
And then through repeated plays, the familiarity of the songs showed that most of the songs were of great quality and everything was right in the music world.
I mean, it has to be quite difficult to put out music, and no matter how hard you try to keep it separate, it would always be compared to The Beatles canon, which most fans won’t even talk about any song being subpar.
And I’m always amazed when some of my music friends will comment after a new release, “Why does he keep putting music out? He must have enough money. Why does he do it?”
He’s been creative his whole life, why would he stop?
An artist is an artist forever?
I mean, did anyone ever ask Picasso to quit putting out works?
So, on Sir Paul’s birthday, I would like to emphasize a fairly unknown recent track, “Do It Now.”
I have no idea how long it took him to write, but it sounds simple–in a Beatleish way.
In a McCartneyish way!
Beautiful melody and harmonies.
Mostly simple, elegant chords.
It sounds like a lullaby–a slow version of “Golden Slumbers.”
It’s comforting, but with a purpose!
“Do it now while the vision is clear!”
I hope Paul continues to release new music!
I love it when legends create!
The Most Awesomest Song of the Day is “Do It Now” by Paul McCartney!!!
Happy Birthday, Paul!
