Default What songs would have made for good videos...?

Amongst McCartney songs that have NOT been released as singles (no video), which ones would have made for good videos...?

My choices...

Temporary Secretary:
Businessman Paul interviewing candidates for the secretary job (the neuro-surgeon, belly-dancer, diplomat...)

Footprints:
Just Paul sitting on a bench (with accoustic guitar), in the middle of a snow-covered field

"Between Marilyn Monroe and Lenny Bruce"
"If we check their coffins"

His song Run Devil Run would have made a neat video, and well if a video was made mtv obviously didn't play it. But my idea for a video would be all rock a billy looking with a little modern flair, some performance scenes and some other stuff.

It would be interesting to see one for "Daytime Nighttime Suffering" - although I'm not sure how that one would look, I don't really have a vision of it.
"Here Today" would be lovely if it was just film and photos of John, The Beatles, etc.
And "1985" would be good, but again, I don't know what it would look like. I just LOVE that song and think everyone should hear it!

"Long Haired Lady" Why was this not a single?

"The Back Seat of My Car" Would make an interesting video if you know what I mean.

"Angry" would've been a good video, very agressive, with Paul shouting or something like that.

"Monkberry Moon Delight": I've always imagined Paul sitting on a piano, singing this one, in a dark room.

"Tomorrow": I love this song, and it would've made a great love story video

"Big Barn Bed": Paul singing in a field, with acoustic guitar...simple as that.

"So Glad To See You Here": Paul in some action, in a airplane, in the studio, etc.

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Hehe... I knew you'd said that, and I completely agree. One of my favorites, and it would be an amazing video...

I also agree on "Big Barn Bed", but I would like it more as a performance video, like in a barn (innovative, isn't it? )...

The Song We Were Singing, the video with Paul & John

Yeah, especially with pictures of the fabs in the recording studio...


"Angry" & "Here today" are also very good suggestions, wonder how I could forget "Here today"...?

If they had made a video of Here today with all the Beatles footage I would cry everytime I saw it.

Yeah, me too.

I always thought "Can't Buy Me Love" would have made a WONDERFUL video, even though it was a single! (Yeah, I KNOW it's ineligible, but still...)

I like eveyone's suggestions, especially the snow and the acoustic. Sounds very peaceful and pleasant to me.

This is a really cool question.

*1985 would have been cool as a futuristic video, like Paul doing Mad Max in this strange appocalipse (sp!) world.

*I know theres a video for BEAUTIFUL NIGHT, but it could have been better. Paul barefoot on his porch, on a summer night, looking at a lake maybe.

*He could have done something trippy and psychadellic with Uncle Albert.

*Oooooo! MAYBE IM AMAZED! footage of him and linda, like from wingspan! *sighs*

*I always liked the promo for 'comming up' with the different Pauls. If he did something like that for Silly Love Songs, where he played a bunch of different people (construction workers, bankers, panhandler) singing the song on a crowded new york street.



------------------
I'd be quite prepared for that eventuality.

For someone who cringes at Paul.....you sure spend *alot* of time talking about him.
