One issue with that is that Paul has 24 studio albums, however many a/b-sides and other oddities, tho I presume it all has to have been officially released in Paul's name and miscellaneous collaborations with other acts wouldn't feature (eg Smoking Mojo Filters). What about live tracks like 'All my Trails'.

The list would be long so would take time to go thru when voting.

I'm up for it tho and it may propel others to go and listen to more Paul.

I don't have time to run the poll, but I'd definitely vote. We would need to hash out "the canon" to include in the poll.

Heck, anything he's ever done post-Beatles should be fair game.

Nothing obscure will make the top 67. But yes, it will spur some to check songs out.

I am listening to Pure Mccartney for the first time now. Its a fun trip through Mccartneys career, and fun to place each tune on an album with a year as you listen. Kind of a Mccartney brain teaser. Obviously all of the music is great.

Plus some songs I don't know, and some that I haven't heard in a while. I'm glad that I put this on.

I thought this Top 40 Paulie solo song ranking from RS was a lot of fun a-hard-days-night-paul-5to read, listen and view.
