Paul McCartney married for the third time on Sunday, exchanging vows with businesswoman and heiress Nancy Shevell in a small civil ceremony at the Marylebone Town Hall in London.  The ceremony was followed by a reception at McCartney's home, with guests including his fellow Beatle Ringo Starr, George Harrison's widow Olivia and television journalist Barbara Walters, who is Shevell's cousin. The couple have plans to throw another wedding party in New York sometime in the near future.

Shevell, 51, has been married once before, to lawyer and former New York State Republican senatorial candidate Bruce Blakeman.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
