There’s a lot of fun to be had putting together ranking lists as I have done before with The Beatles and Cream, so I thought I’d do the same again but with Wings. Wings are a band that some people make fun of these days but I personally love them, with McCartney continuing his excellent songwriting he started with The Beatles. The two bands can’t be compared for obvious reasons, but I love Wings and their seven albums, so here is my ranking from least favourite to favourite.
On the 17th April 1970, Paul McCartney stepped out of the shadow of The Beatles with his first solo album McCartney. It was unlike anything he had done before and as a result received a lot of criticism across the board. At the time, of course, the breakup of The Beatles was still fresh in peoples minds and McCartney received (unfairly) a lot of the blame. But this album set him on a course away from The Beatles and their legacy and in my opinion it is one of the best solo albums to be released by any member of The Beatles.
A new song by the legendary Paul McCartney has debuted from the soundtrack of a new animated movie called Ethel & Ernest. The song, titled In The Blink Of An Eye, is piano based and can be heard right here. Take a listen:
As the tenth track on 1966’s Revolver, For No One is one of the highlights on the entire album due to the magnificence of McCartney’s songwriting. But the music itself is exquisite as well and what we have in this article are the isolated piano, clavichord and drum tracks from the song which sound fantastic.
Recorded between the 23rd February and 21st March 1967, Lovely Rita is a song penned by Paul McCartney and one of the (many) highlights on the Sgt. Pepper album. Like many Beatles songs during this period there are many layers to Lovely Rita, but what we have below is the isolated piano track from the song.
Released in December 1973, Band On The Run was in many ways the breakthrough album that Paul McCartney needed after the breakup of the Beatles three years earlier. In that time he would release three albums (McCartney, RAM, Wild Life & Red Rose Speedway) but none of them would gain as much critical acclaim as Band On The Run. The title track is one of the albums many highlights and the following is the isolated vocal track from the song.
