Paul McCartney, "Queenie Eye"


Both this song and its video are perfectly serviceable and entirely unnecessary but my question to you is, How many other indisputable musical geniuses are still around today? I mean, on the level of Paul McCartney? Stevie Wonder, sure, and probably Willie Nelson. But there aren't a lot of other people who you will be able to turn to your grandchildren when they ask you about them and say, "You know, I was alive at the same time he was. I remember seeing his videos, and I saw him live on TV a couple of times. Now be very quiet, because the killer robots are circling the ground we are hiding beneath, and we don't want to get eaten by their metal jaws, here in the future. Let's play the pretend-to-be-asleep game." Maybe also Prince. [Via]

You'd think that people would have had enough of silly genius lists.
