* CoolOldGuy: He's in his 70s, and in an era where artists like Music/{{Kesha}}, Music/TaylorSwift, Music/KanyeWest, Music/LadyGaga, Music/BrunoMars, Music/KennyChesney and other young pop-oriented and country artists are top concert attractions, Paul remains solidly in that group of top concert attractions, regularly selling out top venues and drawing fans both young and old.
** Sir Paul even had a voice cameo on ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'' where [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext he jumped out of a cake at Diane's birthday]].

* AlternateRealityEpisode: Three albums released under the name "The Fireman", a "group" consisting of Paul and the record producer Youth. The first two albums were sound collages. ''Electric Arguments'', still rough and unpolished but a more conventional collection of songs, got [[http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/culturecritics/neilmccormick/3561922/Sir-Paul-McCartneys-Electric-Arguments.html strong reviews]].

* AnalogyBackfire: The analogy of piano keys representing racial harmony in "Ebony and Ivory" falls apart when you try playing a C and a C-sharp at the same time. Musical notes that sit side-by-side on the keyboard do ''not'' get along, regardless of colour.
** They do if played as part of a chord. [=GMaj7=], for example sounds fine with a black and a white key next to each other (doubling the root at the octave). Major 7th chords are actually quite common in The Beatles music. Not to mention that the song itself features a bunch of pedal tone chords that don't take away from the Major tonality of the song, some of which do in face feature black and white keys played next to each other, making the example a somewhat GeniusBonus for the musically trained.

* EmbarrassingFirstName: His full name is James Paul [=McCartney=]. You wouldn't think James was all that embarrassing, but no fewer than three post-UsefulNotes/WorldWarI British prime ministers have had the same aversion: James UsefulNotes/RamsayMacDonald, James UsefulNotes/HaroldWilson and James UsefulNotes/GordonBrown. Another was more enthusiastic, or maybe saw it as the lesser of two evils: Leonard UsefulNotes/JamesCallaghan. Word of Biographer has it that everyone called him Paul to avoid confusion with his father, James 'Jim' [=McCartney=].

->'''Reporter''': I'd like to direct this question to messrs. [[Music/JohnLennon Lennon]] and [=McCartney=]. In a recent article, 'Time' magazine put down Pop music. And they referred to 'Day Tripper' as being about a prostitute, and '[[Music/RubberSoul Norwegian Wood]]' as being about a lesbian. I just wanted to know what your intent was when you wrote it, and what your feeling is about the 'Time' magazine criticism of the music that is being written today.
