I never considered myself a Beatles fan, but recently I’m finding that there are several songs from those band members that I do really like. Particularly Paul McCartney and the Wings. I’ve been hearing ‘Silly Love Songs’ on the radio quite a bit lately, and I have to smile and sing along whenever I hear it.
So when I recently recieved a free $5 towards MP3s from Amazon, I figured why not get that song? While researching the best mp3 version of that song to get, I came across an mp3 album by Paul McCartney and the Wings called Wingspan. I started to look down the list of songs (and listen to the snippets) and told myself that if I liked 5 songs or more, it was worth it to spend the whole free money on the album.
It turns out that I like the majority of the songs on the first disk, and a handful of songs on the second disk… I’d say I definitely like (ie. will dance around and possibly sing along with) 18 out of 40 songs:
Listen To What The Man Said
Band On The Run
Live and Let Die
Silly Love Songs
Hi Hi Hi
Let ‘Em In
Uncle Albert / Admiral Halsey
With A Little Luck
No More Lonely Nights
Maybe I’m Amazed
Take It Away
The way I look at it, if I had wanted to buy the 18 or so mp3 songs separately it would have cost more than $5… and that $5 was ‘free’ and couldn’t be spent on anything but mp3s.
If you are a 70s kid, too, and like the occasional McCartney song like ‘Silly Love Songs’ or ‘Uncle Albert’, you might give this compilation a try. 😀
Wingspan MP3 album $4.99 at Amazon
Ok, so maybe my neighbors think I’m a little nuts for turning up Silly Love Songs, so be it. 😛
Until next time…
