Paul McCartney says he’s so pleased with the America’s Election Day voting results that he hopes to someday get a chance to serenade incoming First Lady Michelle Obama.
“I hope to get the opportunity to sing … to his wife. I have a little song ready for her,” the former Beatle told Britain’s Sky News backstage at the MTV Europe Music Awards Thursday night.
Asked what tune he has in mind, McCartney sang the beginning of the Beatles ’60s hit “Michelle,” which was famously borrowed by Slick Rick in his 80s rap anthem “La-Di-Da-Di.”
As for President-Elect Barack Obama, McCartney said, “I think sincerely he is the man for the job. I think it is a legendary occasion and I wish him the very best.”
