‘Figure Of Eight’ is the seventh song on Paul McCartney’s eighth solo album Flowers In The Dirt. See more…

Very spontaneous, very rough; another two-day effort with Trevor…The vocal is live, which I like with all that rough-ness… There were certain conditions… that I put on them. And… they made me do stuff that they hadn’t heard me do recently… it was great, I really enjoyed it.

The following people thank Joe for this post:

NB the above McCartney quotation isn’t really true – he really disliked the album version, wanted it remixed, and re-recorded it for the single release. The full story’s in the article.

Here’s the album version, produced by Trevor Horn and Steve Lipson, for comparison:
