Paul McCartney’s first post-Beatles #1 hit single. This song is similar to the Abbey Road medley where Paul stitched together unfinished song fragments to make a song.
A lot of people seem to love this song but it just grates on my nerves for some reason.
I’m one of those who love it. I loved it as a teen back in 1971, and still love it today as an old man.
Here-here! I was five when it came out and I still love it.
