Regarded by many as the best McCartney album. It is very good, but I think it's far from
No words - somehow, I just like this McCartney/Laine collaboration. An excellent rock song.
Bluebird - I like this "sequel" to Blackbird. The beat is great. (Is that Bossanova?)
Nineteen hundred and eighty five - wow, the lyrics may not be up to scratch, but the vocals are great, the music is perfect, and I think this is one of the best closers of any album.
Band on the run - the big hit isn't one of my favourite cuts. It shows McCartney's fondness for songs composed of many small bits, and often I like those songs, but this isn't one of them.
Jet - the other hit has some good music, but (again) the lyrics drag it down.
Mrs. Vandebilt - what is this song about? Not a very interesting song. Sometimes, I do get bitten by the "Ho Hey Ho" bug, and I cannot for the life of me stop singing those words.
Picasso's last words (Drink to me) - I don't know if I'm the only one, but I like Denny's singing. However, the drunk and French interludes are a bit silly.
Let me roll it - simply not good enough to grab me. I hope Lennon appreciated it. And finally I've noticed the similarity to a Lennon song. I know that it's supposed to be a tribute, but earlier I couldn't see why. But I took a listen to "Walls and Bridges", and noticed the similarity to one of the songs there. Now if I could only remember which one it was… Could it be "Beef Jerky", the instrumental?
Mamunia - just think if someone who actually could write lyrics had been hired to help out with this song. This could have been a real hit.
