Paul McCartney's new album has a weird name..
Jan 10th, 2012
PAUL MCCARTNEY'S next album is called "Kisses on the Bottom".
--I know what you're thinking . . . the same thing occurred to me . . . but the title is NOT celebrating the obvious...
--Instead, "Kisses on the Bottom" was taken from the lyrics of the first track . . . a version of FATS WALLER'S 1935 hit "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter".
--The lyric is: Quote, "I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter and make believe it came from you / I'm gonna write words oh so sweet / They're gonna knock me off of my feet / A lot of kisses on the bottom / I'll be glad I got 'em."
(--OK. But it's still an odd choice for an album title.)
--"Kisses on the Bottom" is a covers album, featuring some of Paul's favorite songs from when he was a kid. And interestingly enough, it's the first album in which Paul doesn't play any instruments. He just sings.
--He's backed by DIANA KRALL'S band. There are also two original songs on the album: "My Valentine", which features ERIC CLAPTON . . . and "Only Our Hearts", which features STEVIE WONDER.
--"Kisses on the Bottom" hits stores on February 7th.
