Boy, do I have bad timing or what. Here I am posting a BYOBO from Sir Paul just one day after he celebrated his 66th birthday. Should I have done this yesterday as a birthday tribute – sure I should have. But as it is, perhaps I can be the first to wish him a happy birthday for next year.
In any case, here is a list of some of my fave Macca songs. I’ve decided not to include Wings stuff as that is a list of it’s own, and there is no way I could limit to just 15 with them piled in.
I think you’ll find some surprises here, and if you’re not familiar with them, I encourage you to check them out (clicky the linky in the list) and let me know what you think.
So once again inspired by Nat at Mini-Obs, the idea is the same as always:
Pick one of your favorite bands / artists and list 10-15 songs by that band / artist to compile your own best of compilation.
So here goes – The Best of Paul McCartney as compiled by me:
Back Seat of My Car – Ram
Every Night – McCartney
Golden Earth Girl – Off The Ground (sorry – only vid I could find..)
- Here Today – Tug of War
Junk – McCartney
Little Willow – Flaming Pie
Maybe I’m Amazed – McCartney
Teddy Boy – McCartney
That Would Be Something – McCartney
- Too Many People – Ram
- Tug Of War – Tug of War
- The Song We Were Singing – Flaming Pie
- Wanderlust – Tug Of War
- Winedark Open Sea – Off The Ground
- Write Away – Press to Play
Admittedly, a good many of these would have been omitted had I included Wings material, but I think it ends up being a fine collection of tunes. I was able to find YouTube clips for all but one of them, vying for original studio versions if available rather than live clips. I hope you enjoy.
