The Beatles Top 60 Songs: #29: “Maybe I’m Amazed”- Wings. “Maybe I’m Amazed” would have an interesting life. It was written by Paul in 1969 in the late Beatles days. It was a love song to his new wife Linda who he gave credit to helping him though difficult times. The song came out on Paul’s first solo album the self-titled McCartney album- an album in which Paul played all the instruments. While the rest of his album was recorded at home – “Maybe I’m Amazed” was an exception- it was recorded at Abbey Road. While the song was a popular album cut from the McCartney album and received a lot of air play- it wasn’t released as a single- then. Flash forward to the mid-70’s – on the Wings- Wings Over America Tour- the live version of the song would be on that massive triple live album- and this live version would be released as a single and make it to #10 on the Billboard Hot 100. It would also later become the only Paul McCartney song from his post-Beatles days which Rolling Stone named on their 500 Greatest Songs Ever list- checking in #347. In 2009 in an interview Paul said that “Maybe I’m Amazed” was the song he’d like to be remembered for in the future.
