‘Daytime Nighttime Suffering’ was the b-side of ‘Goodnight Tonight’, Wings’ standalone single released in March 1979. See more…

That’s a pro-women song. “What does she get” for all of this? “Daytime nighttime suffering.” It’s like the plight of women. You were saying about the Beatles stuff and my stuff being very humanistic. And I say that’s what I would be most proud of – as would any artist.

Probably a top 5 Paul solo song for me. Just insanely catchy from start to finish, listen to it once and it doesn’t leave my head for weeks, and I don’t mind that at all. Add to that some brilliant harmonies and you’ve got one of the most underrated pieces of his entire catalogue. Just a perfect example of Paul’s intuitive sense for creating pop melody. This one swings, speeds up and slows down, ascends and descends effortlessly while existing perfectly within the phrasing of the lyrics. While not really a big hit, I think this one would’ve been the highlight of several albums released around the same time during Wings’ final years.

I believe that this song, with “Goodnight Tonight” on the A-side, was probably the first 45 I ever bought for myself, in early summer ’79. I already owned a bunch of singles, but they were all handed down from relatives, or bought for me as gifts, and I wasn’t in the habit of spending money on myself, aside from buying MAD magazine monthly. But when “Goodnight Tonight” had dropped down the charts and the radio started giving airplay to “Suffering”, I learned that the two songs were from the same 7″, and decided that buying that single was a good deal, since I was getting two hit songs for the price of one (Can’t recall the price; maybe $1.99?)
