Anyone know the name of it. The one with the whistling and I think Paul Mccartney strumming on the guitar.

It's called Dance Tonight from his new album "Memory Almost Full".
The album as a whole isn't too bad - I've bought a few of the tracks but not the whole thing.

Important advert that one as it shows an ex-Beatle, somebody to do with "Apple Records" advertising the fact his new album is available on iTunes.
Something a year ago you probably wouldn't think you'd ever see.
Of course McCartney also gets the last laugh as Apple will have paid him a fair amount to advertise iTunes.

I bet John Lennon is turning in his grave!

I'm sure you can if you really try.

The lyrics must have taken him all of about thirty seconds to knock up. For anybody who hasn't had the 'pleasure' of hearing it I've reproduced them below:

Everybody gonna dance tonight
Everybody gonna feel alright
Everybody gonna dance around tonight

Everybody gonna dance around
Everybody gonna hit the ground
Everybody gonna dance around tonight

(Chorus)
Well you can come on to my place if you want to
You can do anything you want to do

Everybody gonna dance tonight
Everybody gonna feel alright
Everybody gonna dance around tonight

(Whistling)

Well you can come on to my place if you want to
You can do anything you want to do

Everybody gonna stamp their feet
Everybody's gonna feel the beat
Everybody wanna dance around tonight

(Bridge)

Everybody's gonna dance tonight
Everybody gonna feel alright
Everybody gonna dance around tonight

Everybody gonna jump and shout
Everybody gonna sing it out
Everybody gonna dance around tonight

Well you can come on to my place if you want to
You can do anything you want to do

Everybody gonna dance tonight
Everybody gonna feel alright
Everybody gonna dance around tonight
Everybody gonna dance around tonight
Everybody's gonna feel alright tonight

I actually like it, a nice little catchy ditty of a song that makes me want to whistle and jig around.

Its hardly a musical masterpiece but its a good song all the same.

Exactly.
People seem to overlook those kind of facts - that music doesn't have to be deep.
Blimey, just look at some of the lyrics out there and they can be laughed at.
It's simply a catchy tune that just put a smile on my face the first time I heard it.

If I only bought music based on "How deep" it went my music collection would be extremely small.

I couldn't care less if it was deep or not. The song is not catchy and is just pathetically bad, imo.

Yeh like you havn't whistled to it.

The hook only happens once in the song. Helps it not get so old so quickly. JHave to keep replaying the track though :)
