‘You Gave Me The Answer’ is the fourth song on Wings’ fourth studio album Venus And Mars. See more…

I know it’s sort of a rock-and-roll album but there’s other things I like that aren’t necessarily rock-and-roll. On this LP I thought I’d like to get some of that in, so ‘You Gave Me The Answer’ is real fruity, imagining tie and tails, my impression of the Fred Astaire era.

When I started to listen to music, the kind of music was Fred Astaire and the Billy Cotton Band Show, Cole Porter’s type of lyrics. I like the Astaire films they show now on television. I think, wow, great, boy, can they dance! Boy, can they arrange tunes. They were only doing what we’re doing now, but some of the time they were much better at it! Think of the choreographing of some of the big numbers, you just won’t see that these days. We all know it’s the money they had, but the class is still there for someone like myself to look back on and say ‘That’s a great idea.’
