95 More Songs of Summer - "Listen To What The Man Said"
They may be silly love songs, but Sir Paul McCartney has always had a knack for writing great ones. This is a song that I always felt deserved more respect than it got at the time. It was a big hit, but in 1975, we were still in that stage where people seemed to think that every effort by an ex-Beatle was going to approach the level of what they accomplished together. You can't capture lightning in a bottle every day of the week, folks.
And look at him now - he's 70 years old, he looks great, he's got a great band behind them, and the song still sounds great.
"Listen To What The Man Said," Paul McCartney and Wings, from the summer of 1975.
