When it comes to collaborations, Sir Paul McCartney seems to be a "Rules" kind of guy. Basically, he's old fashioned and into the idea of potential collaborators making the first move to get the ball rolling.

And he's got his eyes on a few people in particular.

"I'd like to work on some more dancey stuff with MGMT. But it has to happen organically," he told UK gossip blog Zoe Griffin [via NME.com]. "We need to talk about it. I can't call them. If they called me, I'd say, 'How did you get my number?' But I'd do it."

McCartney also addressed rumors of a Bob Dylan pairing, saying he'd be interested if Dylan called him first.

"So much has been written about me doing a collaboration with Bob or me doing a collaboration with Ringo and Bob. But that is not happening yet. We're nowhere near," he said. "I did say I wanted to work with Bob but that was ages ago and he hasn't been in touch. I can't contact him. That's not cool."
