How do you follow up an institution like the Fab Four?! Paul McCartney took to the air in answering that question 45 years ago.

McCartney’s new band, Wings, made their live debut at the University of Nottingham in England as part of a tour of UK colleges. It was the first time McCartney played on a live stage since 1966 with the Beatles before they became studio hermits with their last few outstanding albums leading to their acrimonious breakup. This video discusses the origins of Wings.

While certainly not on par with the Beatles catalog (then again, what band could possibly measure up?!), the Paul McCartney & Wings song catalog is impressive in and of itself. This was the first Wings tune I remember hearing on the radio when I was all of 5.

As for my favorite Paul McCartney & Wings tune, I always had a soft spot for this tune,..

,…with this classic a close second.

How about you? What Wings tune qualifies as your favorite?
