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

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.

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.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Someone above mentioned how well Paul sings 'Carrying'. When he was spending time in a Japanese Prison the DJ's were quick to play 'Band On The Run' …."Stuck inside these 4 walls……you know the rest……. Perhaps it was polite of them not to pick out 'Carrying'

 

As for me, the McCartney song I've listened to many,many times and never get tired of is, 'Little Lamb Dragonfly' ….'How did two rights make a wrong?'

 

It's a pity songs like this don't seem to get played on air. More people should've heard that song back in the '70s. 'Great tune Paul'.

meanmistermustard said, "I like Take It Away apart from the horrible backing vocals ...., and the "ahh's" and saxophones (or whatever they are) at the end."

I don't generally care for brass sections; but there are exceptions. "Got To Get You Into My Life" and "Take it away" are two of them IMO.

I actually like the production of "Take it away."

I have read every single page of this thread so far and I am surprised no-one has mentioned this song:

 

 

Absolutely lovely song. LOVE the flute! If you like Paul McCartney you CANNOT dislike this song!

I agree with the echo effect on the vocals. They also the backing vocals are a little to prominent in the mix. It did remind  of how the did many of the backing vocals on many beatles recordings. Obviously it came out much better back then. Also it was produced by George Martin so could be the reason you like the brass since he obviously produced "Got To Get You Into My Life".

Early Days. It brings a tear to my eye every time, and not many songs can do that.

If I were to create a 1 CD Best Of...

Good idea. I'll make one - but it'll be two discs instead, because I don't want to cut out too much. (Instead I'll include too much :) )

Disc One

  1. Helen Wheels
  2. Venus And Mars/Rock Show
  3. My Love
  4. Jet
  5. BOTR
  6. I'm Carrying
  7. Hi, Hi, Hi
  8. C Moon
  9. Magneto and Titanium Man
  10. Ballroom Dancing
  11. Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five (Cutting out the sort of reprise of BOTR at the end)
  12. Listen to What The Man Said
  13. Junior's Farm
  14. Coming Up (Live at Glasgow)((This version is so much better than the studio version))
  15. Mull Of Kintyre

Disc Two

  1. Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey
  2. Take it Away
  3. Let 'Em In
  4. Silly Love Songs
  5. Calico Skies
  6. I've Had Enough
  7. Let Me Roll It
  8. Smile Away
  9. Great Day
  10. Letting Go
  11. Beware My Love
  12. Flaming Pie
  13. Junk
  14. Maybe I'm Amazed

I know it's mostly Wings stuff, but many of my favorite songs from his post-Beatles career were with Wings.
