While it was a major hit- I have never thought much of this song. You get two of the biggest stars of all time together and this is what the result is? The other songs Paul and Stevie did for the Tug Of War album- ‘What’s That You’re Doing” was much much better. But then again who am I to argue with Paul McCartney- he knows better when it comes to writing hit songs?
