"Song for Paul" released for Paul's 80th birthday from the City of Hamburg and SALAMANDA


It is common knowledge: The remarkable international career of The Beatles first took off in Hamburg, when the legendary band first performed at Indra Club in August of 1960. The rest is, as they say, history.

Still today, all across Hamburg and the St. Pauli-district especially, The Beatles are a prominent phenomenon - They are part of the city's DNA.

With Sir Paul McCartney's 80th birthday coming up this Saturday, June 18th, the city of Hamburg decided it was time to finally give back a song to Paul, after he gifted so many unforgetable songs and memories to all of us.

SALAMANDA, a band from Flensburg, not far from Hamburg, were the right guys for the job: They wrote and recorded "Song For Paul", a 5-minute love letter to Paul McCartney. The song was mixed at the renowned Abbey Road Studios.

With "Song For Paul", the city of Hamburg is starting the #SongForPaul social media campaign - Fans from Hamburg and all over the world are asked to say their thanks to Paul on Saturday, June 18th and share the songs written just for him.

"Song For Paul" is released this Friday, June 17th, accompanied by a music video shot on many locations with Beatles-history, such as the before mentioned Indra Club, the famous Reeperbahn and a grande finale at the "Beatles Platz" (Beatles place), where over 300 fans joined the band for the flash mob video shoot.

The goal of the campaign is to reach McCartney personally, and let him know how thankful the citizens of Hamburg are for his life's work. The campaign is initiated by the band Salamanda, the city of Hamburg, BID Reeperbahn+ and several cultural associations.

Yesterday is helping French Students

 Check out this video. It was sent to us by a school in France. One of their sixth forms did this as a special project on understanding "how the English language's prominent role in being an international language was also greatly helped by pop music."  They said it was a seven-month marathon work with an extra mile for their video clip on the most covered song in the world :"Yesterday"
