Question Scissor Sisters "Paul McCartney" song

The Scissor Sisters are such a great band. Their 2004 single, "Take Your Mama Out" was one of the songs of that summer. Their new album has a song called "Paul McCartney". It's a great song but doesn't mention Paul or even really sound like Paul. Does anybody know the story??


Here are the lyrics:


There's an urgency I'm feeling for the first time
It's all mine
Do we dream about each other at the same time?
All night
This might be the only way to talk to you
That's right
It's your ears with the sound that I walk into
Your mind

Is it the party that ain't over 'til it's through?
Is it the wiring that's suddenly blown a fuse?
Is it a chemical that makes this moment true?
Is it the music that connects me to you?

There's a way to get together then I'm gone away
One day
It's a place that all that matters are the notes you play
I say
Simple pleasures when I'm listening it gets me by
Won't lie
When you're singing I'll be with you 'til the exit time
We shine

Is it the party that ain't over 'til it's through?
Is it the wiring that's suddenly blown a fuse?
Is it a chemical that makes this moment true?
Is it the music that connects me to you?

Here I was awaiting
Praying for the muse
I'm finally awake and you have
Left me less confused
Maybe now
You will hear me now
I'm just in love
In love with your sound

Is it the party that ain't over 'til it's through?
Is it the wiring that's suddenly blown a fuse?
Is it a chemical that makes this moment true?
Is it the music that connects me to you?

Your song it gets me by
When you're singing I'll be with you 'til the exit time

Woo thanks Fluxus! I like this! The intro definitely sounds like something Paul would have on a solo album. I would like to hear the whole song... so I think I'll check them out! Thanks again! They sound good!

Reading the words to the song, it appears the writer and singer are Paul fans!

It was inspired by a dream the lead singer had... he even told Paul about it at the Live 8 concert and Paul said to send the song over to him :)

Sometimes, you release an album and the record company just about ignores it, and so many people don't even know it's out. And I'm not about to jump up and down shouting, "Hey folks, look at me! I'm cool and groovy!" That's not what George Harrison is all about. ~ GH

I've heard about it and found the title misleading. I thought it was going to be about Paul!
