  1. The Back Seat of My Car

  2. Ditto to Debra D. Maybe I’m Amazed!

  3. Maybe I’m Amazed

  4. McCartney solo? “No More Lonely Nights,” the perfect bookend to “Yesterday.”

  5. Junior’s Farm!

  6. Heart of the Country. So simple and lovely.

  7. “With A Little Luck”

  8. Heart of the Country

  9. Junior’s Farm

  10. I’m gonna go with “Old Siam, Sir” at the moment.

  11. “Junior’s Farm” – favourite non-album single.
    “Maybe I’m Amazed” and “Band on the Run” – favourite singles from album tracks.
    “Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey” – favorite track from Ram.

  12. One of my favorite songs is ‘Another Day’, which is great because it’s now included in this reissue.

  13. All I think of when I hear “Too Many People” is John Lennon replying with “How Do You Sleep?”. Like Hey Jude in reverse

  14. Probably “Maybe I’m Amazed”

  15. Mull of Kintyre and My Love are two of my absolute favorite PM/Wings songs. :-)

  16. ” Maybe I´m amazed ” … a beautiful love song and an eternal and very sensitive tribute to inforgettable Linda … this song shows what real love is in an not conventional way … music, especially piano enhances the powerful feelings explained in lyrics …

  17. Venus and Mars !!!!!!!

  18. Helen Wheels/Country Dreamer would be my favorite amongst many greats to choose from.

  19. Another Day

  20. How can you pick just one? I really did Vintage clothes/ that was me/ feet in the clouds off memory almost full (I really count them as one piece of music). Really though it depends on my mood. McCartney has made so much great music over the years that picking one is just impossible.

  21. 3 legs!!! “My dog he got 3 legs… but he can run!”

  22. Live and Let Die. Especially since I have seen him in concert a few times performing this one!

  23. Another Day……great video!

  24. Hope Of Deliverance/Long Leather Coat
    The best single I ever heard and I’ve got it!! :)

  25. Live and Let Die!

  26. Always have enjoyed “Jet,” but my vote has to go for Wings and the “Goodnight Tonight”/”Daytime Nighttime Suffering” single.

  27. Country Dreamer

  28. “Maybe I’m Amazed”. Sir Paul, Linda was the love of your life, and she always will be. The RAM album is one of my favorite all time albums. When it was released I knew it was ok that The Beatles had broken up, and that George, Ringo and John had a steep hill to climb to keep up with you.

  29. “The Back Seat Of My Car” b/w “Heart Of The Country”

  30. Another Day

  31. Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey, and so many others.

  32. Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey

  33. Let Me Roll It…does it

  34. Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey

  35. Jenny Wren!

  36. So many good ones to pick from but i’d have to say Helen Wheels!

  37. Maybe I’m Amazed – it is going to be our wedding song. :)

  38. My Brave Face

  39. Maybe I’m Amazed.

  40. So many fantastic songs to choose from, but the one that is a classic and makes me want to sing along the most is ‘Band on the Run.’

  41. Tough question. I really love “Let Me Roll It.”

  42. Mull of Kintyre with those lovely bagpipes from the region.

  43. “Maybe I’m Amazed.” In his solo career, it’s the closest he ever came to the towering majesty of songs like “Let it Be,” “Hey Jude,” etc.. It’s hard for a song to be grandiose AND humble, yet Macca somehow pulls it off with “Maybe I’m Amazed.”
