Suicide by Paul McCartney – ***


A little snippet of this appears at the tail end of "Hot As Sun/Glasses" on "McCartney", but it is part of a much longer piece, which to date has not been released. It was recorded a few times, most notably in 1969, 1970 and 1974. This is the notorious song that McCartney wanted Sinatra to sing. If I was Sinatra, I would have turned it down, too. Who wants to sing about suicide, anyway?

Might I suggest Terry Jacks/Jacques Brel. I do believe Seasons in the Sun went top 10 in '74 or so.

Gonna have it stuck in my head just for thinking about it.
