6 Oct 2008
Album: Wings at the Speed of Sound
Genre: Soft Rock, Glam Rock
This song became one of the best-selling singles of the 1970s and is listed #31 on Billboard’s Greatest Songs of all time. Paul McCartney had been criticized for writing lightweight songs, even John Lennon had made a comment about “silly love songs” and also said that Paul’s material was “a lot of rubbish”. For that reason, as a response to this, Paul McCartney wrote this song, which was his first try into the then-popular disco sound, together with his band Wings. The song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and number two on the UK Singles Chart.
