Since there is a 'Paul McCartney Songs' sub-forum i'm dedicating a thread to the 2 minutes of bouncy perfection that is 'San Ferry Anne' off of 'Wings At The Speed Of Sound '. 

Another gem from Paul that is not known by a lot of people. Absolutely adore it and I have no idea what Paul is on about.

Thank you for posting, mmm. I always forget about this song until I listen to Wings At The Speed Of Sound . Definitely one of the best songs on the album, and it's a pretty great album, so that says a lot. I'm actually listening to it right now - it's been too long.heart

Oh yes, love it. But then, Wings At The Speed Of Sound is one of my favourite albums anyway. I'd say Beware My Love (the regular version, not the John Bonham one, which is less epic i.m.o.) is my favourite track of that album, but San Ferry Anne is in the top-3, definitely.

Yup - on my list too   (see Best post-Beatles McCartney songs)

By the way, San Ferry Anne means "doesn't matter" in French ("ça ne fait rien" with a strong English accent) - a nice contrast to "That Means A Lot "!

Yeah. 'WatSoS' could easily be my favourite Paul album and 'Beware My Love' is also my favourite on the album. Never get tired of hearing it.

"Beware My Love" IS great.

You bet he will; great line.
