Of course it all depends on how you measure greatness. Is it singles sales? You'd probably have to go back to '87 for that, is it just personal opinion? I guess that's more it. Of course if you are now a middle aged stick in the mud where things are never as good as they was when you were a young 'un then that is going to taint your views somewhat. Is it not?

If you say Band On The Run, Maybe I'm Amazed etc then maybe 30/40 years of hearing them and the memories of youth have some bearing on your opinion...

I mean Silly Love Songs is a heck of a catchy melody, it's quite loveable yes, but it's no way as affecting as say a Jenny Wren or Calico Skies or even some even more obscure recent b-sides.

60/70 year olds don't get as much air-play as 20/30 year olds...

Blah blah...

Back To The Egg is still, on the whole, cheese disco balls pap. But then I wasn't around then...

I think there are 2 criteria to this question - Paul has had a solo and a Wing's career after the Beatles. So maybe pick one from Wings & one from his solo career which would include "McCartney" to "Kisses on the Bottom" since there are a couple of originals on his latest.
So, from his solo career: Too much rain
Wings: Jet
Thanks

Geez, I made this harder than it was. After reviewing Pauls solo work backwards, I came upon this one. Its only my favorite tune he's ever written. Wonder why I didnt just blurt that out to begin with.

Last great song: "Band On The Run"
Last unforgetable song: "Maybe I'm Amazed"
Last immortal song: "Let It Be"

Wow, immortal song, that bar is ratcheted up there pretty high now.  How many songwriters ever craft an immortal song?  I'd say Paul has over half a dozen great songs, though.  Yesterday, Hey Jude, Let it Be, Band on the Run, Eleanor Rigby, Maybe I'm Amazed, Silly Love Songs, Wonderful Christmastime, Coming Up, My Valentine, Calico Skies, I'm sure I could come up with more but those are off the top of the noggin.  And yes, despite it being recent, My Valentine is superb, classic, a standard in the making that crooners will be singing long after Lady Gaga's trash is rendered obsolete.

Nah, I dont mean the last immortal song he may have written, I just mean, what was the last song you thought was actually great.

That's another one that never seemed to make it across the Atlantic, I guess frogs can't jump that far.  ;)

We All Stand Together, is a better tune than anything on Pipes Of Peace. But it's not exactly the song you want to get caught in your brain. Haha.

Anyway, I'm listening to this...
