Paul McCartney talks about writing songs with Michael Jackson

October 14, 2015

Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson

To pave the way for a remixed, deluxe edition of his classic album Pipes of Peace, Paul McCartney has released a remix of his 1983 hit with Michael Jackson, ‘Say, Say, Say’, which was originally produced by George Martin. The song became Jackson’s seventh Top 10 hit in a year.

In the video below, McCartney talks to Manic Street Preachers’ frontman James Dean Bradfield about what it was like to write songs such as ‘Say, Say, Say’ with Michael Jackson.

McCartney reveals that the song was written quickly, with Jackson and himself face-to-face around a piano in the former Beatle’s London office.

“It came very easily because I was excited to be writing with him and he was excited to write with me,” said McCartney. “We just popped off each other.”

To celebrate the Small Faces’ induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on 14 April 2012, there are plans to release deluxe editions of all four of the classic albums that the short-lived group recorded between 1965 and 1969.

The remastered new editions will  include a 3CD version of the band’s classic psychedelic pop album from 1968, Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake.

Universal Music claims the new releases will be “the most complete editions to date of the Small Faces’ four classic albums” and “a testimony to a truly original group whose influence is as great today as it was during its lifetime”.
