Couldn't believe there wasn't already a topic started for this song, considering it hit number one on the US and Canadian charts. I've had this song stuck in my head for the past month, it's so catchy and the saxophone parts are delightful. Definitely one of my favorites.
Here's Paul singing it in 1976:
And here is Paul singing it in 2013:

LOVE THIS SONG. It's great, wonderful, fab, gear, groovy, and all those other pimply hyperboles.

I always forget how good this song is. I tend to just take it for granted sometimes.

Hey this was the 3rd McCartney / Wings single I owned! Was bought it in 1975 sometime by (I think) my grandparents when I was eight. (The others were Uncle Albert and Hi Hi Hi ...I loved looking at them alongside each other, thought it was neat how they all had different labels; I rarely kept sleeves for my singles.)
It's a pretty good song - I like how the man says "Da da DAAA/Da da da da daaa". Don't like the soft-rocking soprano sax outro, though...Tom Scott played SO much limp MOR on so many 70's records...his crap is on a couple of George's records, maybe John and Ringo too for all I know...

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
