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.

They played this on 6 Music this morning; it was the first time I’d heard it.

I wasn’t a massive fan.

First listen is very much a head scratch and a huh. It grew on me over time; sandwiched between ‘Coming Up ‘ and ‘On The Way’ (which is probably my favourite Paul song) it was played a hell of a lot, and I love it.

 

‘MC2’ is a fabulous album but my god you’ve got to play it to get there as it’s not your typical McCartney album. I love ‘Wild Life ‘ for the same kind of reason.

I like that this song has Kraftwerk vibes. It reminds me of ‘Pocket Calculator’.
