Thanks for putting up the link Ms. Wendy.
Typical Macca, in this case it's not a bad thing, just a nice video.

Strange choise for an first single. It would have been better to release "Ever Present Past" worldwide. "Dance Tonight" is catchy, but the music and lyrics aren't to special. A bit effordless really, "Feel alright" "Dance Tonight". A nice album track yes, but not a single.

If this was supposed to be a world premier at a specific time, how did we get it on Tues, May 22nd, from YouTube no less? I guess they didn't count on Miss Wendy's daily scouring of YouTube for Macca vids?

It is a nice video, I love it as it's so odd.

But I agree that "Dance Tonight" is a strange choice for a single. It's like watching something like "Reception" coming out as a promotional single from Back to the Egg or something. It just gets you in the mood (I guess) for the rest of the album, but it is not an integral part of it. I like "Ever Present Past" much more, of course.

We just have to see what the rest of the album sounds like, I guess.

haha I didn't mean to ruin the surprise or anything! AH! It was posted yesterday from Paul's official Youtube account. I think the thing was that it would be featured on Youtube today.

This was posted today. The official Memory Almost Full Electronic Press Kit. Cool stuff.

Hey, and you can listen some of the other tracks!

I liked this new video. I liked the song too, though I know it isn't a big thing and it won't be a great hit either. The ukelele reminds me of George, maybe there is an influence there.

The best thing is that you can see a happy Paul.

Loved this video Miss WW thanks for posting it.
It is great to see Paul happy with life again and he obviously enjoyed making the album, he is a born performer. He is obviously touched by all the support his fans have given him too.

In my opinion, Dance Tonight is the best song on his new album. Great choice to make it as the single!

I thought I would tire of this song quickly but instead it's grown on me even more. It was stuck in my head all day.

Were those performers from Cirque du Soleil who were in the video with Natalie Portman? It just happens to be a coincidence that with her appearing in the video with Paul, it happens to be at the same time when "Star Wars" is celebrating its 30th anniversary of when it was released. And for Macca the 40th anniversary of the release of "SPLHCB".


Could the ghostly Natalie Portman be the ghost of Padme?!

Fortunuately it isn't. Nice tune yes, but if that was the best song on the album it wouldn't be good.
