Song of the Day #3,414: ‘I’ve Just Seen a Face (Unplugged)’ – Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney was the first artist to release an MTV Unplugged appearance as an official album. His 1991 set was heavy on old-school covers with a few Beatles and solo tracks in between.

“I liked the idea that there was a show that reduced music to its bare essentials,” he said, and he took that concept to heart. While previous performers used acoustic instruments plugged into amplifiers, McCartney opted to play his instruments truly unplugged.

[Verse 1]
I’ve just seen a face
I can’t forget the time or place
Where we just met
She’s just the girl for me
And I want all the world to see
We’ve met, mmm-mmm-mmm-m’mmm-mmm

[Verse 2]
Had it been another day
I might have looked the other way
And I’d have never been aware
But as it is I’ll dream of her
Tonight, di-di-di-di’n’di

[Chorus]
Falling, yes I am fallin’
And she keeps callin’
Me back again

[Verse 3]
I have never known the likes of this
I’ve been alone, and I have missed
Things and kept out of sight
But other girls were never quite
Like this, da-da-n’da-da’n’da

[Chorus 2x]
Falling, yes I am fallin’
And she keeps callin’
Me back again
Falling, yes I am fallin’
And she keeps callin’
Me back again

[Verse 1]
I’ve just seen a face
I can’t forget the time or place
Where we just met
She’s just the girl for me
And I want all the world to see
We’ve met, mmm-mmm-mmm-da-da-da

[Chorus 2x]
Falling, yes I am fallin’
And she keeps callin’
Me back again
Falling, yes I am fallin’
And she keeps callin’
Me back again

    Look how young Paul is here even though he was already an elder statesman of rock and roll.

    I love how he embraced the concept and even took in another level. The song sounds great. I guess when you know your songs can stand up to this type of performance, you’re all the more eager to show them off.
