Beatles songs perfomed live by Paul
 
Ok, this is a little project for somebody with a lot of time on their hands. After Paul's last tour (where he played a nice chunk of obscure Beatles tracks), I started thinking that I've seen a good percentage of his Beatles songs performed live.

So I'd like to see a list of every single Beatles song that Paul wrote and sang, from the very beginning to the end. And after each song, just a quick note on whether or not he's performed it live. Obviously some songs have been done a billion times, you can just put "several tours" or something like that. But for others, there might be a single performance, like "Her Majesty" at that jubilee thing, I don't think he's done it any other time has he? Finally, there are of course some he's never done live at all - "Wild Honey Pie" comes to mind.

And then there are some special ones, maybe we can put them on the bottom of this list - basically Beatles songs that weren't his, but which he's done live. Like "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" at the George concert, and "Something" on the last tour.

Gracias in advance...

At this point, I think it'd be easier to compile a list of Beatles songs he wrote/sang on but hasn't sung live.

Looking at a list of Beatles songs but going off the top of my head as to which ones he's played live (marked with a *):
All My Loving*
All Together Now
And I Love Her* - Has he done this live anywhere besides Unplugged?
Another Girl
Back in the USSR*
Birthday*
Blackbird*
Can't Buy Me Love*
Carry That Weight*
Drive My Car*
Eleanor Rigby*
The End*
Every Little Thing - Has he done this? I don't think so but I'd love to hear it if he has.
Fixing a Hole*
The Fool on the Hill*
For No One - Don't think so but not 100% sure
Get Back*
Getting Better*
Golden Slumbers*
Good Day Sunshine - I want to say that he has but I can't remember for sure
Got to Get You Into My Life*
Hello Goodbye*
Helter Skelter*
Her Majesty*
Here, There, and Everywhere*
Hey Jude*
Hold Me Tight
Honey Pie
I Saw Her Standing There*
I Will - I hope he's done this live (might've at one of those Adopt-a-Minefield benefits) but I don't think he has
I'll Follow the Sun*
I'll Get You*
I'm Down - don't think so
I'm Looking Through You - ditto
In Spite of All the Danger*
I've Got a Feeling*
I've Just Seen a Face*
Lady Madonna*
Let it Be*
The Long and Winding Road*
Lovely Rita - don't think so but not positive
Magical Mystery Tour*
Martha My Dear
Maxwell's Silver Hammer - doubt it but he may have
Michelle*
Mother Nature's Son
The Night Before
Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da - surprisingly don't think he has
Oh! Darling
Paperback Writer*
Penny Lane*
PS Love Me Do* if it qualifies...even though it sucks
Rocky Raccoon
Sgt. Pepper's*
She Came in Through the Bathroom Window*
She's a Woman*
Tell Me What You See
Things We Said Today*
Two of us*
We Can Work it Out*
What You're Doing
When I'm Sixty-Four - think so, not 100% sure
Why Don't We Do it in the Road?
Wild Honey Pie
Yesterday*
You Never Give Me Your Money*
Your Mother Should Know

And of course you have the stuff like the George songs you mentioned, the Lennon medley ("Help!"/"Strawberry Fields Forever"/"Give Peace a Chance" in some order), the soundcheck version of "I Wanna Be Your Man" and maybe a few of the covers too.

Jerry Aug 16, 2007 09:59 AM

Ok that's a good start. I don't remember "Bathroom Window" ever being performed live, and there are several up there that he's definitely done, especially on that last tour. And I've always thought of "Tell Me What You See" as a John song right? I'll have to clean it up when I get a chance.

Not that I can remember.

Nope. I love that bit on the Fly on the Wall CD where the band is planning what are they going to play in their upcoming concerts. George says then something along the lines of "are we going to play just new songs? Perhaps we could open with some oldies, like...", and then he plays the opening guitar riff of "Every Little Thing". Apparently one of his faves. One of mine, too.

Would you count Broad Street?

He has played that. It's on the Get Back video, which documents is 1989-90 world tour. Don't know why it is not on Tripping the Live Fantastic! It is a good version and it would have enriched what is a lousy live compilation, IMO.

All that I've heard is a small snippet he covers on The World Tonight video. Of course I don't think it counts as a real "concert". It is quite surprising that he hasn't played it completely, live.

He has played "Please Please Me" recently, as well. I think it was on the US tour, last year(s).

Jerry Aug 16, 2007 11:17 AM

For sure he's done these...
I Will - last tour
I'm Down - the 9-11 NYC gig
Mother Nature's Son - last tour

And maybe these...
For No One - several tours ago?
Lovely Rita - last tour?
Rocky Raccoon - last tour?
Your Mother Should Know - several tours ago?

ringo_rama Aug 16, 2007 12:18 PM

I thought I remembered reading that he did Bathroom Window during one of his most recent tours. I actually have a Beatlefan issue that has the set lists of all his tours, I'll try and dig it up soon.

yeah, and in madrid, here is some footage, o and he played it in his last tour:



Serena Aug 16, 2007 03:39 PM

i believe and i love her was done throughout his 'new world tour' in 93' and at the secret gigs in barcelona in 91.

for no one was done through both is 2004 and 2005 tours.

she came in through the bathroom window-2005 US tour

all the rest he's yet to do.

Jerry Aug 16, 2007 06:16 PM

Updated list. I just can't believe he hasn't done a few of these at some point, they're made for live shows. And why the hell didn't he do "When I'm 64" when he was 64? No-brainer to me.

Paul did my personal favorite, "Things We Said Today" in 2003 at his Concert in Red Square, Russia.

And that was awesome.

I wish he did "She Loves You" too with Ringo. The original bass and drums.

beatlebangs1964 Aug 19, 2007 10:56 PM

So do I. "Please Please Me," and "She Loves You" are among my very favorite songs.

Jerry Mar 30, 2010 11:20 PM

I remembered that I started this topic awhile ago. Just got back from the show at the Hollywood Bowl - I'm Looking Through You and Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da were real treats. I've updated the list. Does anybody know if Paul has ever played these songs live before, anywhere?

beatlelover45223 Mar 31, 2010 07:58 PM

I love all these songs but "Every Little Thing" and "Tell Me What You See"
LOVE these 2 in particular, off topic but "Maybe I'm Amazed," nice!

Brainwashed Mar 31, 2010 08:01 PM

According to the supposed "Cold Cuts" album track list "Martha My Dear" has been done by Paul during the 80's.

http://maccablog.co.uk/news.php?news=5634

He also did "I'll Get You" during the US Tour in 2005 as well. Might as well add "A Day In The Life" because he's been doing it since the Liverpool gig a few years back.

The_Taxman Mar 31, 2010 08:44 PM

I'm pretty sure he did "She's Leaving Home" at one point.

Reverend Rock Mar 31, 2010 09:00 PM

Yes, Paul has performed "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window" live.
