New Reels: ‘Say Say Say’ (2015 remix) by Paul McCartney & Michael Jackson

The polished up 80’s pop gem from these two musical legends comes with a vibrant new video.

Released to coincide with a new remastered release of McCartney’s Pipes Of Peace album, this really not very radical new mix of this old track coud seem like a bit of a pointless cash-in did it not sound every bit as infectious as it did 30-odd years ago. The song itself was a genuine co-write between the two with McCartney supplying the verse and Jasckson then coming up with a chorus, and whilst neither of them could say it ranks amongst their best work it has a breezy swagger that is hard not to like. This version features some previously unheard vocals and is included as a bonus track on the Pipes Of Peace re-release..

The song might not be new but the video is, and it’s fab. Directed by Ryan Heffington and featuring some thrillingly shot dance routines as a boy boogies his way through his day and neighbourhood. The video matches the song’s restless energy perfectly and the combination will leave a big grin on your face. The King Of Pop himself would surely approve.

P.s. It wasn’t our intention to post a Paul McCartney video whilst we’re having a John Lennon
