D/N suffering is definitely a gem. I didn't particularly care for it at first, but like most Macca tunes, it quickly grew on me.

Agreed, Ram. I love the middle part...

After the Ball is another one for me. "That Day is Done" from FITD always reminded me of it.

Very good comparison, Steve. I agree. Especially with that similar sounding organ.

So many, lots already named. It's true that the popular image of Paul is badly distorted, though he's brought some of it on himself.

A few:
Oh Woman, Oh Why (my old 45 is so scratchy ... put it in a boxed set, Paul)
Give Ireland Back to the Irish
Mary Had a Little Lamb (love the melody and Paul's singing. I also see this as a very defiant recording. He knew he'd get ripped for it and did it anyway.)
Get on the Right Thing
The Mess
Girls' School
Daytime Nighttime Suffering
Don't Let It Bring You Down
Temporary Secretary
Footprints
Kicked Around No More

JMD--Oh Woman, Oh Why is already on one of the remastered (Wild Life?) macca albums. Look for the "bonus track" thing at the top...

And Mary is just dreaful, but to each his own, man. Ireland is one that I only have on 45 and I like it....no turntable though :(

Entire back to the egg album is a hidden gem. I really dig "Old Siam, sir" and "Arrow through me" . I really like Winter rose. What the hell is Old Siam, Sir about ,though?
