Sir James Paul McCartney turns 70 years old on June 18. While the kids may be wondering who's this Paul McCartney dude -- use the Internets, kids -- those of us who have been following music for a few years know he was the guy who put out that awesome Liverpool Oratorio! and who played bass in The Beatles and The Wings. If it matters, according to Wikipedia, he is one of the most successful songwriters and musical artists of all-time. Sales numbers for Bach back in his day are not available.
What I've foolishly done here is put together the "25 Greatest Beatles Songs by Paul McCartney" and left off "Let It Be," "The Long and Winding Road" and "When I'm Sixty-Four" because I like these other songs better.
My own choices are what they are. The order is nearly nonsensical, since if you asked me to reproduce this list without referring to it, even right now -- it would come out very different. Fact is, you can't go wrong with any of the 25 songs listed. You likely can't go wrong with another 25 Paul McCartney songs that didn't make the list. But I'm sticking to 25! To think, I didn't even make it past anything after he left the Beatles! Wow! I really have wasted my life!Read More »from 25 Greatest Beatles Songs by Paul McCartney
