Hold Me Tight (Beatles not Wings)
Motor Of Love
Don't Be Careless Love
Gratitude
2 or 3 of those bland ones off Pipes Of Peace that I've listened to so many times and still can't name as they are SO bland.
I Do
About You
I know it's not his song, but the decision to cover the Crossroads theme tune still baffles me, there was NO logic to it, so that can go in!

oobu, your list makes perfect sense, except for "Gratitude" and "About You."

I think people miss the sarcasm of "Gratitude." At least that's the way I interpret the song.

"About You" is one of the best rockers he's written and recorded since RUN DEVIL RUN was released. Surely, you could have found something else..."Loup (1st Indinan on the Moon)," or "I Am Your Singer," for example?

Wow.

I guess this is all very subjective stuff.

But..."About You?" Really???

just off the top of my head...this list can (and probably WILL) be adjusted at a later time:

Kreene Akrore
Monkberry Moon Delight (because the lyrics are RI-DIC-U-LOUS)
I Am Your Singer
Loup (1st Indian On The Moon)
The Broadcast (completely baffling)
Warm & Beautiful (agree totally with a review at the time that it sounds like a bad, original song written by a school band member for their high school prom)
Morse Moose and the Grey Goose (sorry, Mr. H)
Waterfalls
Frozen Jap (just by virtue of the title)
Bogey Music

Bonus Bad:
-------------
Motor Of Love

I shall revisit "About You" on my Maccathon when I get to that point (still only half way through Tripping The Live.... at the moment)

But.... Monkberry Moon Delight - HOW COULD YOU!!?!?!?!?!?!?!

I am beyond shocked!

I don't get this almost universal LOVE for "Monkberry Moon Delight" among Paul fans.

Yes, the vocal is awesome. The riff is really catchy.

But the words?

Catch up, cats and kittens, don't get left behind.

Ketchup, soup and puree, don't get left behind.


'nuff said. It's embarrassingly bad. THAT is where he needed Lennon. Not to help him write it. Just to say to him, "Macca, are you MAD?"
