Paul McCartney: the best voice in rock and pop: Part 5 That Day Is Done

No. 5 That Day Is Done from Flowers In The Dirt (1989)

Paul's back catalogue is so varied - which is one the reasons why he is so hard to pigeon hole and perhaps fails to maintain that cult 'cool' following that John did. 

That said, this is a very unique song, and there is little that is similar to this in his song book. This was a co-write with the secret Lemonade's drinkers' fruit and is a moving and haunting song about death. Paul does the subject justice with one of the most emotional and soulful performances of his career. Truly heart wrenchingly beautiful. This man has soul and it shows here.
