‘Morse Moose And The Grey Goose’ is the final song on Wings’s penultimate album London Town.

The song originated from a jam on board the Fair Carol, a motor yacht stationed at Watermelon Bay in St John’s in the Virgin Islands, where several of the London Town backing tracks were recorded. See more…

This one started on the boat in the Virgin Islands. One of the electric pianos we were working with had a funny sound on it and I was just hitting it and it sounded like a crazy Morse code. When we started, we made six minutes of this funny sound and we had nothing else. We had no idea for a song at all, and we later overdubbed little bits and pieces on it, making it all up as we went along. This was one of those songs that we didn’t know how it was going to turn out. In the end, we got it back to London and we wrote a little bit called ‘The Grey Goose’ in the studio. It’s a sort of mad sea epic, all about those in peril on the sea. We put that in with the first song and the song became ‘Morse Moose And The Grey Goose’.
