Kennedy Center Honors 2010-Paul McCartney- Let it Be

this just blew me away last night and had Paul in tears.. WOW...

YouTube - HD,Final live,33 RD, Annual Kennedy Center Honors .2010 , HD 1080 p.




I was in tears by the time this was over.. This is my favorite Beatles song and always moves me to tears every time.

One of the best Beatles songs ever written.

enjoy.

Though Oprah was cracking me up.

I love Let it Be. That was beautiful. I loved how into it the Obamas were. Michelle was stunning as always.

I saw the No Doubt performance too. I am also convinced that Gwen Stefani took that potion from Death Becomes Her, she just doesn't age.

Maybe I'm Amazed is such a beautiful song. I liked the performance, but would have preferred it as a Dave solo.

I think Let it Be and Hey Jude are both inherently cheesy songs, so I can't really get offended by this. If Paul liked it and I got a chuckle out of it, everyone wins.

But let's get down to what really matters, the important stuff:

It was an awesome show but obama is not kool at all! He's an idiot,liberal socialist!

What a terrible performance. So cheesy, and the lazy blues scale chords thrown in during Mavis' portion just ruined it. By the time they got to that aborted foetus of a fudged guitar solo, it was sunk. Paul is known for his cheesy side, but this was bad enough to make Bluebird seem like a death march.

Perfect example of how to ruin something wonderfully simple with a bunch of tacked-on bullshit.

So disappointing when you consider how wonderful the Springsteen tribute was last year.
