Paul McCartney will marry his fiancée, Nancy Shevell, this weekend at a farmhouse in Sussex, England. "It will be a small, intimate wedding," a source told Us Weekly. "It's going to be very elegant and classic."

In addition to the wedding in England, the couple will also celebrate in New York, where Shevell serves as a member of the board of the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority. "They are having a big party in New York to celebrate later on," says the source.

This will be McCartney's third marriage. His first wife, Linda, died of cancer in 1998. His second marriage to Heather Mills ended with an acrimonious and expensive divorce in 2008.

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
