Yesterday I wrote about the trip I took down south with my grandfather and cousins in the spring of 1974- and the pain I endured on hearing “The Streak” every hour on the hour while traveling. There was a plus though-the other song that was being played constantly was “Band On The Run.” For a few days I thought it odd- I thought “Band On The Run” was two songs- and thought it strange that no matter what radio station was playing it-these two songs were played back to back. Of course it is only one song. 46 years later I am still not tired of hearing this song. It would get my vote as the best post- Beatles Paul McCartney song. The album- Band On The Run also gets my vote as the best McCartney album.
