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.

Band On The Run
1 May 2011
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.
