10. Paul McCartney on the West Side on Wednesday night.

Guarino: "Paul McCartney told a familiar tale about his song 'Blackbird,' that it was intended to reflect the individual struggles of the Civil Rights movement. He explained the simple origin of the even simpler song in a rather grandiose way: while levitating high above the audience on a riser, a LED screen below him showing the image of nothing less than the entire planet.

"At age 72, McCartney is very comfortable standing on top of the world. The victory laps that comprise his ongoing Out There world tour are packed with many reasons why: A songbook that is a foundation of the pop music canon. At the United Center Wednesday, McCartney powered through two hours and 40 minutes of only a portion of those songs - the winsome piano ballads, the chugging power rockers, the upbeat pop fare, the solo acoustic song, the silly nonsense sing-alongs. You know their names, no need to look up their numbers. The performances were strict in adhering to the original versions, with every strange quirk of the recordings - the orgasmic-sounding breathing of 'Lovely Rita,' for one - dutifully recreated by the band."
