Paul McCartney – The Making Of Queenie Eye

Paul McCartney – The Making Of Queenie Eye (music video).

Queenie Eye was filmed at Studio 2 at Abbey Road Studios in October, 2013. Queenie Eye is a song performed by Paul McCartney, and co-written by McCartney and producer Paul Epworth. It’s the second single from McCartney’s solo album New, released in 2013. Paul McCartney explained that the song name and chorus lyrics were from a children’s game he would play when he was young called “Queenie, Queenie, who’s got the ball?” (the “Queenie” was alternatively called “Queenie Eye” or “Queenio”), and used the version of the chant he remembered from the game in the song. The music video for the song was directed by Simon Aboud, husband of McCartney’s daughter Mary. The video is notable for the array of famous people that appear in it including: actors Johnny Depp, Jeremy Irons, Chris Pine, Jude Law, Sean Penn, Alice Eve, actor-comedian James Corden, Meryl Streep, actress-comedian Tracey Ullman, model Kate Moss, singers Jack Savoretti, Gary Barlow, artist Peter Blake, designer Tom Ford, and many others. Paul McCartney performed “Queenie Eye” on the 56th Annual Grammy Awards telecast in 2014, with fellow former Beatle, Ringo Starr on drums. The video begins as Paul McCartney heads to a grand piano at Abbey Road Studios. “There were rules you never told me,” he sings, as he taps his foot on the wooden floor of the studio. Shortly thereafter. the scene slowly reveals some famous interlopers. Johnny Depp listens to the song on headphones, at the foot of McCartney’s piano. And then, one by one, more and more celebs show up and it becomes the sort of party one would expect to spring up around Paul McCartney.
