Music: Paul McCartney and U2 – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Been watching the broadcasts of Live 8 and I’m impressed… not only because there are great acts, and lots of people turned out… but because music is being used to move the masses, and in this case governments. On a large scale, that doesn’t happen often enough. U2 and Paul McCartney opened the London show with Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The performance was the first time Macca had actually performed it live, and the first time he and U2 have performed together – One of my favorite songs, and my favorite performers… together. I’ve actually already purchased the WMA version of the track from Digital7 for £ 0.99 . The money goes to charity, and the track is well worth it. Downloaded, Burnt, Stripped, and Ripped.
