McCartney May: The Third Time Is The Charm For Band On The Run

Band on the run

I have the single and the full LP, but this single version of Band on the Run has a different B side and instead of being listed as just Wings, it’s Paul McCartney and Wings. Its one of the groups best known singles so I don’t mind having it three times.

McCartney May: Wings On A Jet


Jet! Jet! Jet!
I can almost remember their funny faces
That time you told ’em that you were going to be marrying soon
And Jet,
I thought the only lonely place was on the moon
Jet! Oo Jet! Oo
Jet! Was your father as bold as a sergeant major?
Well how come he told you that you were hardly old enough yet?
And Jet,
I thought the major was a lady suffragette
Jet! Oo Jet! Oo

McCartney May: Coming Up For My Love With Wings


I’ve touched upon Wings when entering the “W” section of the collection but it turns out, my dad had a ton of singles listed as “Paul McCartney and Wings” and since it’s McCartney May here on My Dad’s Albums, I figured these would all fit in nicely.

The group went through a ton of line up changes so I figured we’d start there for this revisiting of Wings.

The Best Of Cream


Cream were a 1960s British rock supergroup power trio consisting of bassist/singer Jack Bruce, drummer Ginger Baker, and guitarist/singer Eric Clapton.

Their unique sound was characterised by a hybrid of blues rock, hard rock and psychedelic rock, combining psychedelia themes, Clapton’s blues guitar playing, Bruce’s powerful, versatile vocals and prominent bass playing, Baker’s pulsating, jazz-influenced drumming and Pete Brown’s poetry-inspired lyrics.

The group’s third album, Wheels of Fire, was the world’s first platinum-selling double album. The band is widely regarded as being the world’s first successful supergroup. In their career, they sold over 15 million albums worldwide. Their music included songs based on traditional blues such as “Crossroads” and “Spoonful”, and modern blues such as “Born Under a Bad Sign”, as well as more eccentric songs such as “Strange Brew”, “Tales of Brave Ulysses” and “Toad”.

Nobody Peter & Gordon Know


Nobody I know could love me more than you
You can give me so much love, it seems untrue
Listen to the bird who sings it to the tree
And then when you’ve heard him see if you agree
Nobody I know could love you more than me

You Don’t Have to Tell Me

It’s A Sign Of The Times


That your love for me is getting so much stronger
It’s a sign of the times
And I know that I won’t have to wait much longer

You’ve changed a lot, somehow
From the one I used to know
For when you hold me now
I feel like you never wanna let me go

It’s a sign of the times
That you call me up whenever you feel lonely
It’s a sign of the times
That you tell your friends that I’m your one and only

Downtown With Petula Clark


When you’re alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go downtown
When you’ve got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know, downtown

Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?
The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares

So go downtown
Things will be great when you’re downtown
No finer place for sure, downtown
Everything’s waiting for you
