It's Coming Up

Paul McCartney's "Coming Up"

The music video for “Coming Up” from the McCartney II album was directed by Keith McMillan and released in 1980. It has been newly remastered in HD.
“Coming Up” was the first single released off the McCartney II album. The video features Paul McCartney playing a number different roles, alongside Linda McCartney who plays the backing signers in the video.

Remstered in HD from a SD Video? The video was originally shot on multiple video takes, then composited on video. It looks like they've upscaled and de-interlaced the video elements and freshly composited them in HD. Looks really good, I did see some blockiness surrounding "Buddy" at 1:35.

“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

Their shenanigans remind me of the video for Foo Fighters' "Learn To Fly" video.

It is what it is.

One of my favorite McCartney songs, if I'm being honest -- the one that really got me into McCartney back when it was released. I had heard of The Beatles at that age, of course, but didn't really listen to them beyond what (rarely*) was played on the radio. This single and subsequent album changed that.

* I say rarely b'c it seemed that none of the local rock/pop stations played Beatles songs during that era (Late 70s/early 80s; New Orleans), other than a couple of songs from the white album and Abbey Road. Came to find out later that was somewhat industry-wide and I'm not sure why, but I do remember hearing a story on NPR during the 80s about that (right around when their CDs first started to be released).

(ADDED) The Tug of War album remains my favorite solo McCartney album. A lot of movement on that one, IMO; and the song "Take It Away" is one of my top 3 McCartney solo songs. Played that song loud every time it came on; just about wore out the cassette back when.

(BTW, it's spelled < y'all >.)

Very cool, thanks. It's hard to believe that highly prodced music videos were a thing in 1980, but I guess that was the Beatles influence probably.

40 years later, McCartney III is out next month. As with the first two, it's Paul and only Paul.
