Liam’s Perfect Woman is Available on Amazon and Nook Today! (And a Paul M. contest!!)
Monday, August 1st, 2011

Happy August to all! Time to get out and do all those summer favorite things soon, or time will soon be out!

Just a heads up that the second book in the Home to Harbor Town series, Liam’s Perfect Woman, is now availble in Kindle and Nook for 3.99!

Guess who I saw last night? Paul McCartney in concert, and he was FABULOUS. Talk about a showman. He just kept rockin’ it, giving his all. He played every song I hoped he would, and much, much more…Maybe I’m Amazed, The Long and Winding Road, Yesterday, Let it Be, Hey Jude, Eleanor Rigby, Live and Let Die (for which there was a huge flame and firework accompaniment) and the list goes on. I hope I have as much energy as he does at age 70.

I’ll give away a copy of winner’s choice of Liam’s Perfect Woman,The Hometown Hero Returns OR a $5.00 Samhain gift card to one commenter who answers the following question: Do you have a Beatles, Wings or McCartney song that’s a favorite? If not, surely one of them sticks in your mind, as pervasive as the songs are in our culture. Tell us about it, and qualifty to win. πŸ™‚ If you like, include the link to your fave on U-tube for others to enjoy.

    Oh Beth, there are so many Beatles songs that stick and pop to the forfront when ever they are mentions. It would be difficult to pick just one. But the one that always comes to mind and has a lot of fond memories for me is I Wanna Hold Your Hand.

      I agree, Heather. It’s amazing how many there are. Talk about a living legend. πŸ™‚

      Thanks for stopping by!

    Hey Beth:

    Glad you enjoyed Sir Paul last night. My favorite is one of his Wings tunes: “Bluebird”, it’s little known but on his Wings CD. πŸ™‚

    I don’t think there is a You Tube link for it. lol

    I also love Maybe I’m Amazed!

    Thanks Beth! πŸ˜€

      Hi Lea! How are you today?

      I don’t know Bluebird. He did play Blackbird, which is a Beatles song written for the civil rights movement. Apparently, it’s also a standard for teaching guitar, and every guitarist in the audience yelled when Paul asked if they’d been taught it. Weird, to have so much influence on people’s lives.

    I love Twist and Shout and every time I hear it, I think of the scene in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

      Good choice, Jane! Man…sometimes it amazes me how much that man wrote and performed, whether it was as one of the Beatles, with Wings, or on his own. I almost forgot Twist and Shout was the Beatles. And you’re right, you can’t hear it without thinking of Ferris taking over at the parade in downtown Chicago and wowing the crowd. Classic. πŸ™‚

    I have always like Silly Love Songs! It’s a fun sing-a-long song.

      Funny you said that Amelia! I love that song, too, and we were talking afterwards about how it was one of the ones we could think of he didn’t do. It’s a great song. πŸ™‚

    I just bought a copy of Liam’s Perfect Woman this past weekend. I am really looking forward to reading it. My favorite Beatles or Paul McCarty song? I like the short songs from Abbey Road. I love Mean Mr. Mustard. I was just singing it over the weekend. I also love Elanor Rigby.

      Hey Jen!

      Abbey Road was a great album, wasn’t it?

      He sang Eleanor Rigby. We thought he wouldn’t, but he did, and it was fab.

      He did a complete update musically on Day Tripper. I would have never picked it, but that song rocked the concert.

      Thanks for checking out Liam, and for stopping by.

    Well….I never liked the Beatles or Paul McCartney’s music **ducks** But I Wanna Hold Your Hand comes to mind when I think of the Beatles.

      haha. No worries, Elaine. Music is very individual, so no chucking tomatoes around here. πŸ™‚

    “Drive My Car” is so fun!

    “Baby you can drive my car…” And then at the end:
    “I got no car and it’s breaking my heart
    But I’ve found a driver and that’s a start”

    Beep Beep’m Beep Beep Yeah!

      Oh, man, I love that!

      One thing you really realize seeing McCartney live is how much he loved using sounds instead of words. He had us doing a lot of fun stuff as a crowd with things like Oba Dee Oba Dah (life goes on, OHH), etc. He loves to hum and use nonsense language, and to brilliant effect.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    My favorite would be HEY JUDE. One of my best friends in HS would sing this (replacing June for Jude) every year on my birthday. I still think of her anytime I think of this song, and on my birthday, even though I have not seen or talked to her in 18 years.
    Btw, I had a HUGE crush on Paul McCartney when I was young, even though he is way older than me.

      I love that story! Hey Jude is an ongoing favorite of mine. Since it was originally written for Jules (John’s son) I think you are right on track about changing the consonant to something that suits.

      I wasn’t of the Beatles generation either. I was surprised at how hot Paul was in some of the photos they displayed of younger Beatles on the video screens at the concert. He still has a boyish quality to him. His body is still very slender, and he just has this playful, boyish quality onstage still…At 69 or so!

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

    I love the song Mull of Kintyre he did with the Wings! When I hear that song on the radio I always have to sway along.

      I’m off to check it out, Claudia! Sounds very Celtic.

      Thanks so much for contributing!

    My favorites are Hard Day’s Night and I Wanna Hold Your Hand.
    Thanks for the contest.

      Hi Crystal,

      Both excellent choices. He played both at the concert, and they definitely rocked.

    I have to say Eleanor Rigby cause my pops sang it to me all the time

      Really Jennifer?

      That’s so sweet. It’s such a melodic and really touching song. When he sings the part about Father McKenzie writing the sermon and “Nobody Came” I always get a tear in my eye.
