The Contenders: Page 3

41 Ebony and Ivory
42 Get Back

Why is this not on the list already? The pounding beat, the great vocals, the guitar solo, it is all there!

43 Winter Rose/Love Awake
44 Junk

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

45 Mull of Kintyre
46 Coming Up
47 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..

48 For No One
49 Let Me Roll It
50 Little Willow
51 Give Ireland Back to the Irish
52 Oh Darling

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.

53 She's Leaving Home

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.

54 Put It There
55 I Saw Her Standing There
56 Dear Friend

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!

60 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.
