Don't let the title fool you. It's a beautiful song. Grossly underappreciated. - katcha

42 My Valentine My Valentine
43 Coming Up Coming Up
44 Dance Tonight Dance Tonight

2007 Top 40 hit for Sir Paul McCartney taken from his album 'Memory Almost Full'. A great up-lifting song with a simple, but infectious beat, great to sing along too as well. I remember him performing it on T.V..

45 For No One For No One

47 Put It There Put It There

Gritty,and a plain classic howling song all from the gut. One I can listen to over and over again. - mgenet

This is one of the best vocal performances I've heard in my life. I love this song.

One of the most beautiful musical pieces to ever bliss the ears of pop music fans. Not only that the song is on the greatest album of all time (Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band), but it also tells the story of a young girl who runs away from home. It's so beautiful that even Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys and his wife cried when Macca played to them a rendition of the song on piano. Not to mention the beautiful orchestration and the flawless production of George Martin

Musically, this song gets old. But I remember that the first time I was listening to Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, the story really touched me. I this might be one of Paul's greatest works in story telling. "The note that she hoped would say more" might be one of my favorite lines from all of... Of everything.

Dedicated to his pal john! It really touches my soul! Another one that touches me most is Waterfals from the McCartney II album. It makes you think of all the mistakes you can make if you just go jumping waterfalls!

54 Mull of Kintyre Mull of Kintyre
55 The Back Seat of My Car The Back Seat of My Car

That it's at number 66 must mean very little people have heard it. Otherwise it would be top 20. Amazing composition, brilliantly sung.
