Favorite Wings Tracks?
« on: April 06, 2012, 12:35:36 PM »

I personally know a few people in real life who completely hate Wings, but really, they're a great band! (In my personal opinion of course.)

Anyway, here we go.

1.Band On The Run
2.Silly Love Songs
3.Bip Bop
4.Daytime Nighttime Suffering
5.Helen Wheels

Kind of tough to pick out favorites....  I suppose my top ones aren't all that original, but you like what you like.

1.  Band on the Run (the original promo film to this is awesome)
2.  Silly Love Songs (technically wonderful, best bass line, Linda helps out nicely)
3.  Maybe I'm Amazed (live versions from the Wings days, that energy makes this song)
4.  1985 (Paul excels at songs that build and build and change directions)
5.  Listen to What the Man Said (sums up the mid-1970s mindset)
6.  Live and Let Die (lyrics are too weird not to like, with all the "in's")
7.  Junior's Farm (kind of a wacky rocker and with just a hint of political commentary)
8.  Coming Up (Live at Glasgow) (I consider the live version a Wings song, really their last)
9.  With a Little Luck (Paul at his mellow best)
10. Let me Roll it (Paul still does this one, so he must like it, too)

Honorable Mention: My Love (just a little too cloying to make my top ten)
                          Jet (we played this in our high school marching band ;) )
                          Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey (IF it had been a Wings song....)
                          Monkberry Moon Delight (see above)

By George, I think you're right, how fallible of me, I thought it came right after Paul wrote "Imagine."   :o
