Paul McCartney is 74 today. Happy birthday, Paul!

The so-called “Cute Beatle” is having quite a moment recently. He’s just released a new (solo) career-spanning boxed set, “Pure McCartney”; he’s the subject of a new Philip Norman biography, “Paul McCartney: The Biography”; and he’s popped up in everything from a Kanye West song to a Hollywood Vampires cover.

He also remains an amiable, somewhat candid interview, doing them with BBC Radio and Vice, among many others.

His music, it probably goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyway), has meant a great deal to me.

Here’s one of my favorites. Not a hit in America, but simple, majestic, stirring: a tribute to his talent and prowess.
