On the Paul McCartney site right now are the details of a competition for fans who can sing to upload their own versions of the classic solo McCartney tune “Maybe I’m Amazed”.
I know, it’s just a marketing thing to promote the forthcoming reissues of “McCartney” and “McCartney II“, but it’s quite a nice idea.
There are already quite a few home-grown “Maybe I’m Amazed” covers starting to be uploaded, but one is a ripper version. It was posted on the very first day of the comp by a singer named Katrice Gavino. So simple – just a single camera shot of her singing in her kitchen – but a pretty good voice. I’ve voted her a “Like” on YouTube. Well done Katrice.
I saw Katrice’s version when I first heard about the contest. She has a very nice voice.
I did a guitar oriented version of the song. If you want to check it out, click here.
