‘The Song We Were Singing’ is the opening song on Paul McCartney’s tenth solo album Flaming Pie.

The song was written in Jamaica in early 1995, while McCartney was in a nostalgic mood. See more…

The song represents for me good memories of the Sixties, of dossing around late at night, chatting, smoking, drinking wine, hanging out, jawing through the night. I think it works as an opening track – it creeps you into the album and sets it up nicely. I played Bill Black’s stand-up bass on the recording; it’s the wrong way around for me, being left-handed, but I have a go – and I can just about play ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ on it as well.
