HANS WORST HITS OF THE 70’S- “MY LOVE”- PAUL MCCARTNEY AND WINGS

Hans Worst Hits Of the 70’s- “My Love”- Paul McCartney and Wings. I know I am in a minority in hating this song- most people not only like the song but love it. This was a #1 hit in 1973 for Paul McCartney and Wings off of their Red Rose Speedway album. It was Paul’s second #1 after leaving The Beatles in 1970- the first being Uncle Albert/ Admiral Halsey. What I hate about the song is Paul’s singing of the song  and the “wo wo wo wo’s” The song does have some redeeming value- Henry McCullough’s guitar solo. Other than that- this gets my vote as the worst single by an ex-Beatle. I’ve always found the song cringe worthy.  I think I”d rather hear Maxwell’s Silver Hammer- one of the few Beatles songs I am not a fan of than My Love.  Wo Wo Wo Wo.  The ending is the worst part the drawn out My Love does it good…. to……me… wo wo wo wo wo wo wo wo wo..

  1. I like the song, the wo-wo’s don’t seem to go with the romance part. Are you saying you like “Ebony and Ivory” better than this song? Come on now. You don’t like “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer”?

    • I think a couple months ago I featured Ebony and Ivory as a Worst song… or was it one of Paul and Michael’s songs?

    • Of the two songs he did with Michael and the 2 with Stevie the only one I liked was an album cut from Tug Of War called What’s That Your Doing- with Stevie.

    • Haven’t heard that one before. Just wondering, aside from the duets he did with Michael and Stevie, did he do a lot of duets with others? Just wondering, but it doesn’t seem like he did…

    • Off the top of my head I can’t think of any others… Carl Perkins appeared on a song also on Tug Of War… Makes no sense in the period of the 4 songs total with Stevie and Micheal- the best one was the one never released as a single..

    • That is a good question- you think getting two talented people together and something great would come about- they were big hits but– pretty bad I agree.

  2. I actually don’t mind this song although I agree there is not much going musically or lyrically. I think you’re right that he sort of gave up on it and said he’ll let’s just release this
