Wings – Hi, Hi, Hi/C Moon single cover

Written by: Paul and Linda McCartney
Recorded: November 1972
Producer: Paul McCartney

Released: 1 December 1972 (UK), 4 December 1972 (US)

Available on:
Wingspan: Hits And History
Back In The US
Amoeba Gig


Paul McCartney: vocals, piano, cornet
Linda McCartney: vocals, tambourine
Denny Laine: vocals, bass guitar

‘C Moon’ was released on Wings’ third single, as a double a-side with ‘Hi, Hi, Hi’. See more…

To me, ‘Hi, Hi, Hi ‘ was a perfectly harmless little rock and roll song – ‘we’re gonna get high-high-high’. In my mind, if someone gets drunk then they’re getting high. But because of the times it was equated with pot, and so, again, the BBC banned it. They played the other side, ‘C Moon’. That was a safer track, a nice track, but ‘Hi, Hi, Hi ‘ used to go down better at concerts.

All of these great songs (like C Moon) should have been put on his LPs. What a shame.  But thankfully, we still got to hear them. BEATLES Music gives me Eargasms!  apple01

My favorite C Moon is off of Back In the US. Love what Wix is doing on keys with that vibraphone sound. Of course his playing on Coming Up is what makes the whole live album worth it for me.

There is a cool early mix of this out there with substantial differences such as with Linda’s vocals. Well worth hunting down.
