‘Don’t Let It Bring You Down’ is the penultimate song on Wings’s penultimate album London Town.

Paul McCartney began writing the song in Aberdeen, Scotland, on 22 September 1975, during the Wings Over The World Tour. See more…

We were on tour in Scotland. I think we were up in Aberdeen, sitting in our hotel bedroom, just before we were going to turn in for the night and I had my 12-string guitar with me and I started plonking out a little tune and it became ‘Don’t Let It Bring You Down’. We did most of the backing track on the boat in the Virgin Islands and then, when we got back to London, Denny and I overdubbed quite a bit of the stuff. I play the little bit of lead guitar you can hear and Denny and I play the tin whistles.
