I love the fact the Paul rocked harded then the pthers after the boys broke up. Especially since he was always label the sappiest of the four. (I mean, come on, Helter Skelter?) So, although I LOVE his ballads and slower songs and midtempo jams, I prefer his harder rockin' tracks:

Smile Away
Monkberry Moon Delight
The Mess
Soily
Live and Let Die
Let Me Roll It
Jet
Oh Woman, Oh Why 
Letting Go
Call Me Back Again
Rock Show
Medicine Jar
Beware My Love
Old Siam Sir
Spin On It
On The Way
Helen Wheels
Hi Hi Hi
Junior's Farm
Nothin' to Much Just Out of Sight
Highway
Lighthouse
Momma Miss America (Made my drummer a Macca mix tape and he went nuts for this jam! It's his favorite song now.)
…just to name a few… 

How could you leave out MUMBO !!!!?????paul-mccartney

While I agree with most of the choices by the folks here, I wish to speak up for the under-rated songs that rarely get mentioned:

 

Take It Away

 

Bip Bop

 

Sun (without the Glasses)

 

Three Legs

 

Only One More Kiss

 

Get On The Right Thing

 

Ballroom Dancing

 

Angry

 

That Was Me

Listening to London Town whilst the football is on. The first two tracks are pretty keek but Pauls vocal on I'm Carrying is gorgeous.

I really like "Wanderlust".

Oh, and agree with everything frankd said ^ about "Another Day" and its flip side, but I have felt that since it came out.

OK, I'll take a stab at this. Of course I'm posting now as an older gent, some of the ditties I loved to sing along to as a kid are just too cheesy pop for me today, but here goes anyway. No particular order except for Junior's Farm being #1, I'm just racking my old brains here.

Junior's Farm
Maybe I'm Amazed
Every Night
Oo You
Another Day
Monkberry Moon Delight
Too Many People
My Love
Band On The Run
Jet
Bluebird
1985
Getting Closer

Was listening to the One Hand Clapping alternate take of Jet (as on the 2010 2cd Band on the Run re-release) and figured how to improve Jet to make it listenable. Cut it down to around 3 minutes (should be easy, removing the second ah mater (or whatever it is) would be a start), take out the horns, take out all the backing vocals – the cries of "Jet" are excruciating as are the "woo-ooo woo-ooo's". Simple and should be a decent listen. The lyrics could also do with a major overhaul as well but Paul might not be too happy about re-recording it from scratch.

 

Also rediscovered Nineteen Hundred And Eighty-Five from One Hand Clapping (also on the remastered Band on the Run 2cd) and it is amazing. The beginning with just Paul and the piano is stunningly brilliant as is Paul's vocal. 

This is every bit as good as the LP version. 

 

And Little Woman Love is a real gem in his catalogue.
