And I love Her - Paul McCartney Unplugged

.
Have I ever told you how much I loved Paul McCartney as a young girl? How I used to dream of moving to Britain, working at Apple and marrying him? I know there were thousands like me out there, but until the late '80s, Paul remained my dreamboat. I don't know what changed my feelings for him -- meeting my husband, maturity or just finally acquiescing to the fact that Linda had him good and fair -- but I moved on from Paul.
.
I still think he's a darn fine artist; and I admire him for the good job he seems to have done raising his children. And his tenacity. We just can't get rid of him, can we!
.
But I just recently came across this gem of a video on Utube; and it reminded me of why I fell in love with this gorgeous man with the melting voice and haunting music.



.
Ahhhh, I'm 16 again and in love with a dream!

I was also a big fan of Paul. I liked all of the Fab 4. I dreamed of Davey Jones of the Monkeys.

I was in love with Paul as well. I was actually crazy about anything British. I feel so blessed to be living over here now. It has been a dream come true for me, and I got my own Beatle . . . well, he's got the accent at any rate! xxoo
