Wow, very well said. I definately could not have said that better myself.

Best ones: Something, Old Bown Shoe (yes, two Harrisongs ! - Macca could contribute enormously to his fellow Beatle tunes !), Getting Better, With a Little Help from My Friends, and.....Come Together !

Come Together
"Wings IV introduced Jimmy McCulloch, a spunky lead guitarist with grit, able to spur Paul on unlike any previous soloist. His debut track, the magnificent single `Junior's Farm', stands as one of Wings' finest emotional and technical releases."

Yeah I agree on "Something". There's never been a better bass line, so melodic and creative on any song !!!!

Another fantastic baseline from the Macca man is on a song by Elvis Costello (album "Spike"), the first. I think it's "This Town". Macca used to great effect the Rickenbacker bass !!

Yeah ! But I think Macca's bass meanders more exquisitely on "This Town", though.... :D

Silly Love Songs and Something....I gotta stick to them.
