Pretty Fly For a White Guy

So as you might have heard, Sir Paul McCartney played the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem last Monday night. My friend Laura the Rock 'n' Roll Travel Agent™ was in the audience, and when Sir Paul started up a thoroughly unexpected cover of Marvin Gaye's "Hitchhike," she called me from her cell.

All I could hear at the time was her screaming like a twelve-year-old Beatles fan in 1964, but as you will note from the above mp3 (from the live radio broadcast that night), it turns out it was a pretty terrific performance. In fact, I would venture to say that it was, as the kids say, the shit.
