Ok, so I don't know how to post videos here, but I was curious if anyone knew anything about this song.

I believe I've heard it a couple of times but forgotten about it. 

Wiki Says : 

"Yvonne's the One" (Written by Eric Stewart and Paul McCartney, and first attempted in February 1985 during the sessions for Paul's Press to Play album, but remade and completed on this album, with Paul returning the favour by playing rhythm guitar)

But perhaps you already knew that? 

Edit: The album they're talking about is Mirror Mirror by 10cc

Step on the gas and wipe that tear away.

Along with "Waterspout," it's one of the unreleased tracks by Paul that most of his fans love the most. More people should really check out B-sides and unreleased McCartney tracks. Some of my favorites are Momma's Little Girl, Tragedy, Oh Woman Oh Why?, A Love for You…oh hell, I can't remember them all. Soily…listen to Soily. Just don't pay attention to the lyrics (Soily, soily, the cat in satin trousers said it's oily. WTF, Paul?). The vocals, however, are AMAZING, like Beware My Love or Helter Skelter.

Thanks for that video. Not heard that song before and its good. Other fantastic Paul b-sides that are buried deep in his catalogue are Love Come Tumbling Down and Same Love which were eventually released within the singles taken from the Flaming Pie album. There is actually a great bootleg called Return To Pepperland which has a number of really strong songs that were never released. Supposedly it was an album Paul compiled but abandoned. And yet he released Press To Play – go figure!
