Still an amazing song, and not one I choose to listen to very often, it's very raw and powerful.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

I actually prefer the version from 'One Hand Clapping' that was on the second disc of the 'McCartney' Archive remaster.

Yeah, those OHC bonus tracks are fantastic. I had never heard them until I got the remastered disc and was quite pleased with them.

This really is one of Paul's very best songsa-hard-days-night-paul-8, but I hate the way it ends.ahdn_paul_01  The verse sounds very climactic, so you think it would end with that, but no.  It just sorta ends with a weak fadeout-y thing and goes into the abysmal Kreen-Akrore.  If you can't tell, I'm not a big fan of the McCartney album.  Good song though!

I love this song, it's probably my favorite Paul solo song, although i do wish that the other Beatles were on it, i'd like it if Ringo played drums and George played the guitar in the background during the solo, as well as some 3 part harmonies from our favorite 3 part harmonizers John, Paul, and George.

Great idea, I can hear those Paul/John/George harmonies now for that song -- and another thing the song lacks, in my opinion, is some input into the lyrics from John: he could always be counted on to inject his acerbic, jaded, world-weary spark of wisdom.  Paul tells the story of how when he was writing Getting Better , with the refrain "It's getting better all the time" -- it was John who came up with the devilishly witty rejoinder "It couldn't get no worse!" -- which Paul probably would never think of.

Did Maybe I'm Amazed get performed by The Beatles during the Get Back sessions?

I cannot find it in my collection (which I'm 90% sure is complete) of the Get Back sessions, so I'd have to say no they didn't play it.

I must do a 'Maybe I'm Amazed playlist.......'

You know, listing the one song that stands out head a shoulders above every other on an album.........There's nearly always a knock out power ballad (for me) on every one of Paul's albums. Songs (which unlike MIA) that are rarely heard these days........ Dear Friend, Back Seat of My car.......Little Lamb DF.......Through Our Love......Motor of Love etc......Personal choices....

And then do a knockout rocker list called......... Soily  What a song that is!!!!!

Maybe I'm Amazed is total brilliance and agree with everyone who wishes it had come along early enough to have the Beatle treatment. But it didn't...Still amazing!!

Don't necessarily agree with your other top choices, but do agree with this one.

Coincidentally, in a New York taxi this morning a Netflix movie "Marriage Story" had MIA playing in the background.

This is probably Paul's best post-Beatles song! I first heard it when it came out as a single in 1977 as a live version from 'Wings Over America ' and I thought it was brilliant and bought the single. I really loved it! I later bought the 'McCartney' album and initially was disappointed with the version on the album, probably because I had been used to hearing the live version.

Since then though, I would play the studio version far more than the live version and do now prefer it.

What does everyone else think?

I do prefer the way the live versions ended, with that lovely little descending guitar arpeggio, but the studio one has its charms as well. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

It's an   a m a z i n g a-hard-days-night-george-10 song, he could have sung it whilst banging a toy piano and it probably would've been good. a-hard-days-night-george-10

I really like that song.  It is second on my lockdown keyboard list to learn after Great Gig in the Sky.  In 2008 I did the acoustic guitar part for a collaboration on youtube.  We never did get a drummer!

I always forget that the single was the WOA version, not the McCartney version.
