Shock Turnaround As McCartney Goes Commercial

Former BEATLE SIR PAUL McCARTNEY has changed his mind about his music being used in commercials - and authorised the use of 20 of his hits in TV adverts.

McCartney slammed the use of Beatle song REVOLUTION in a NIKE advertisement several years ago, claiming it "cheapened the song".

But the ex-WINGS frontman has changed his tune, announcing that a sampler of 20 post-Beatle songs, including JET, LIVE AND LET DIE and SILLY LOVE SONGS is to be sent to advertising companies immediately.

Sir Paul explains, "The magic of music is something which unites all people, young, old, artistic and corporate.

"We aim to bring the magic of music to the world while at the same time maintaining the integrity of the music."
