Every time I hear “Got To Get You Into My Life ” I think how easily it could be a Wings song. I think maybe it’s the brass section?

What Beatles songs sound to you like they could have come from one of their solo careers? And vice versa?

Weird thing – “Got To Get You” was released as a single in ’76 (to accompany the “Rock n Roll Music” compilation), and I used to hear it occasionally on radio that summer, but didn’t know who it was. And yet at the same time, same summer, “Silly Love Songs and “Let ’em In” were all over the radio (bigger hits than the Beatles one, or at least I heard them more) and I was certainly aware that those were McCartney/Wings songs. And I knew who Paul was – he was then the only Beatle who I knew by name, a name familiar from my “Uncle Albert ” and “Hi Hi Hi ” and “Listen What The Man Said” 45s. So I spent the summer hearing songs I knew were by an ex-Beatle while unaware that I was also occasionally hearing the real thing! I wouldn’t learn it was a Beatles song until 4-5 years later…

(I only knew maybe a dozen of their songs then, anyhow; only Beatle record in the household was mombontee’s old “She Loves You “/”I’ll Get You ” single.)

Mother Shears Campbell used to always ask me if GTGYIML was a Beatles song or a Wings song.  I can see how it could easily sound like Wings.  Shame they didn’t put it on Wings Over America .

Haha when I first looked at that chart I was gonna remark how cool it was that Paul had songs at #s 11, 13 and 14! Then realized I’d misread the title “Let Her In” by John Travolta(!)

Great point about a theoretical Wings version of “Got To Get You”, WSC – that band had horns, after all, and no Beatle besides Paul sang on the original. Plus the single was on the charts! Coulda been great! (Certainly a fabber Fabs selection than a snoozer like “Long and Winding Road”)

The band Chicago in concert appearances in the 70s used to include their cover of that song (Peter Cetera trying to pull off McCartney vocals).

…and of course Earth, Wind & Fire had a hit with their own, quite elaborate cover not long after the Beatles’ own. (I remember hearing this one on radio too, but never even recognizing it as the same song from two years earlier, with all the jazzy chords and extra vocals and stuff they brought to it.)
