Sticking Out Of My Back Pocket – Classical Songs
From the live brilliance of Liverpool Oratorio to orchestral versions of fan favourites on Working Classical, Paul has enjoyed a long and illustrious career as a composer of classical music.
Have you heard Wings’ ‘She’s My Baby’ and ‘My Love’ rearranged for a string quartet? And what about comparing ‘Somedays’ from the recently reissued Flaming Pie to its classical sibling? For September’s 'Sticking Out Of My Back Pocket' playlist, we’ve chosen some of our favourite classical compositions by Paul to sink into and enjoy.
Along with reworkings of favourite pop and rock songs, we’ve also included tracks from Standing Stone, Paul’s second full-length album release of classical music, and Ecce Cor Meum, an album which took Paul eight years to create!
