Summertime by Paul McCartney – ***

First released: 1988

Kind of an odd choice (at least in my opinion) for Paul to cover on his "Choba B CCCP" album, especially in comparison to the more rocking tunes filling out the album. He does a very nice version of the old 1935 George Gershwin number from "Porgy and Bess". Apparently, "Summertime" vies with "Yesterday" as the most covered song in the history of popular music, so it was only natural that Paul should choose to perform this.
