The official Whitehouse feed doesn't have the opening or the closing bits...

McCartney said he’d been “itching” to perform it at the White House, and asked the president’s forgiveness in advance and later joked that he just might be the “first guy ever to be punched out by a president.”

“I don’t think there could be anything more special than to play here.”  And then he volunteered to make it a regular gig. “Lunchtimes, we could come around,” he offered. “We’re cheap.”

And of course, after the cameras were off, he expressed appreciation for the Library of Congress and added: “After the last eight years, it’s great to have a president who knows what a library is.”


Other biggies also did their versions of the Beatles/McCartney songs:

Stevie Wonder did We Can Work It Out.  The Jonas Brothers did Baby You Can Drive My Car. Corinne Bailey Rae sang Blackbird.  And Faith Hill sang Long and Winding Road. Elvis Costello performed Penny Lane  Dave Grohl  played Band on the Run.

Jerry Seinfeld said, apropos, She was just 17. You know what I mean:

“I’m not sure I do know what you mean, Sir Paul. I think I know what you mean. And I think there’s a law enforcement agency in a couple of states that might want to ask you a few questions.”

The concert will be televised on July 28on PBS’ “In Performance at the White House.”
