Riff: Paul McCartney – “Everybody Out There”

Oct 14, 2013

Hey, do you wanna make a difference/Well stand in line/If you haven’t got time, I can give you some of mine

from Everybody Out There lyrics by Paul McCartney

Appearing to adopt the persona of a self-help guru, McCartney encourages those wandering aimlessly in life to grab the bull by the horns and make the most of their time on Earth on a crowd-rousing sing-along which borrows heavily from R.E.M.‘s “Losing My Religion;” [LISTEN].
