I absolutely love this song a lot for just how weird it is and I always thought of it as Paul commenting on sexism and how women are viewed and portrayed in bureaus, and I was disappointed when all he says about it is that the idea of a "disposable secretary" struck him as being funny. *sigh*. I still hold my original read, though, despite Paul saying that it was just something that he had a laugh about...

Oh, and then there's the cover for the single.....paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

Okay I actually do like this song though.  It's the "She can be a belly dancer..." bridge bit that makes the song though.  I love the pitch up step after every statement.

I love playing this for people and seeing how blown away they are when I tell them it's a Macca song.

Nice...I had vague plans to buy one of the MS-20 Minis several years ago but never followed through. They don't have sequencers, anyways.
