I was going to start a topic on this given the discussion going on today about the Pure McCartney collection just announced. I think we can all agree there were some omissions. I found this topic started re: the Wingspan  greatest hits disc, so let's continue I guess? If you've already posted, maybe something's changed since you did originally, or not.

Here, again are the rules for this as put down by TheWalrus:

Pick your favourite 14 Paul post-Beatle songs (so solo, duets, and Wings all count) and make an album out of them. You can choose more songs if you wish, of course.

One rule: no more than three tracks from any one album.

Very hard to do for me. I'll give it a shot and the order can be rearranged, mostly this is songs as they come to me:

1. My Brave Face (Flowers In The Dirt )

2. This One (Flowers In The Dirt )

3. The World Tonight (Flaming Pie )

4. Helen Wheels (Band On The Run - U.S. version)

5. My Love (Red Rose Speedway )

6. Every Night (McCartney)

7. The Pound is Sinking (Tug Of War )

8. Rinse The Raindrops (Driving Rain )

9. Monkberry Moon Delight (Ram )

10. Coming Up (McCartney II )

11. Another Day (Single)

12. Uncle Albert / Admiral Halsey (Ram )

13. Hope of Deliverance (Off The Ground )

14. Let Me Roll It (Band On The Run ) - very Lennon-esque this one?

Bonus track: Cut Me Some Slack (with Nirvana). I thought it rocked.

I don't know why I previously thought that Arrow Through Me deserves to be on a Paul Mccartney greatest hits album. I actually forgot all about that song since I made that list and had to listen to it just now on YouTube. I think I forgot it for a reason.a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

I think it would be interesting to see a compilation that pulled one track from each album (but not the obvious ones like 'Maybe I'm Amazed ', 'Band On The Run ' and 'My Love) along with a selection of the bigger stand-alone singles like 'Mull Of Kintyre ' and 'Hi Hi Hi /C Moon'. In fact scrap the singles and do something that really promotes the more obscure album cuts.

I'm sad to not see enough RAM on the lists. After a resurgence of popularity I was disappointed not to see songs like Long Haired Lady, Eat At Home , or even Hey Diddle. I would definitely want to include those on a greatest hits list.

Can you call it a greatest hits collection if they weren't the greatest hits?

To be fair it does say "pick your favorite 14" which can be anything you love most.

I've made a Spotify playlist for all four Beatles solo stuff. 

Here's Paul's:

 

P.S. if any of you Beatle Biblers are on Spotify, go ahead and follow me if you want! I'll reciprocate. 🙂

Looks like theres a new package coming out in june "pure mccartney"

2, 3 or 4 disc set,nicely packaged. Takes things right up to date.

To be honest i thought "wingspan" was fine and did the job nicely.
