"(I Want To) Come Home"

That's the name of Paul's contribution to the soundtrack for Everybody's Fine, a Robert De Niro film coming out in December. Have a listen below. It's an elegantly simple, piano-and-strings type emoter. The melody is lush, the pace is nicely measured, and the message resonates. What comes together is a pleasantly likable song. However, the more demanding side of me found it a very safe outing for Paul, one that might cause you to think, "Of course Macca is capable of writing this song and numerous others of a similar style and quality." Like much of his solo output, it's sincere but a bit milky, lovingly made but still warmed-over. I don't know. Head versus heart, I guess.
