Top Ten Paul McCartney Solo Songs

I just realized that we have a Best Beatles Songs list and a Best Songs by Paul McCartney list, but no list for dear Paul's solo career alone. This includes Wings, the Fireman, and any post-Beatles projects.
The Top Ten
1 Maybe I'm Amazed Maybe I'm Amazed Cover Art

If you hear the isolated vocal you just realize how great he was as a singer. At his prime he had a vocal range of 4,5 octaves and he could sing tender ballads and raw rock 'n roll.

This was released as a single when Paul McCartney preformed it in the Wings Over America Tour

After Yesterday this is the best song with Paul McCartney's Vocal's.

I still don't know why this wasn't released as a single originally.

2 Band On the Run Band On the Run Cover Art
3 Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey Cover Art
4 Live and Let Die Live and Let Die Cover Art

A classic James Bond theme song and James Bomd movie

5 Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five Cover Art

Best Wings song

6 My Love My Love Cover Art

Only my love holds the other key to me
- among the best lyrical lines ever in a love song

Best song ever! A classic

7 Too Many People Too Many People Cover Art

A couple of admitted jabs at Lennon and Yoko in the lyrics and perhaos at the other Beatles too during the "feud" and around the time if the breakup

8 Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi Cover Art

"Well, take off your face, recover from the trip you've been on. I want you to lie on the bed, get you ready for my body gun."

That line got it banned. Not to mention, Paul keeps singing about his "sweet banana".

Paul has sometimes claimed the correct lyric is "polygon" not "body gun" but who knows which time or on what he was hi, hi, hi...

9 Mull of Kintyre Mull of Kintyre Cover Art

Toronto is one of only about five places where Paul performs this song live. I'm so excited to see him.

10 Another Day Another Day Cover Art
The Contenders
11 Jet Jet Cover Art

It's a David Bowie ripoff ("Suffragette City", anybody? ), but it's still great.

My favorite paul McCartney song that isn’t beatles

12 Listen to What the Man Said Listen to What the Man Said Cover Art

This song makes me happy all of the time I listen to it

13 Here Today Here Today Cover Art

This song is sad!

14 Coming Up Coming Up Cover Art

This song is probably one of his best songs I've ever heard! Great song!

15 Junk Junk Cover Art
16 Mrs. Vandebilt Mrs. Vandebilt Cover Art
17 Let 'em In Let 'em In Cover Art

My dad used to play this song for me when I was younger. It is still one of my favorites to this day.

18 Silly Love Songs Silly Love Songs Cover Art

How could you not vote for this?! It is a 3 part piece with rounds and duets, with the beautiful words, "I love you" being sung in a soothing way.

It is a lovely piece of work made by McCartney to poke fun at his critics.

19 No More Lonely Nights No More Lonely Nights Cover Art

From the best movie ever (in my opinion), Give My Regards To Broad Street

The best song ever from Give My Regards to Broad Street

David Gilmour's guitar solo makes this song for me.

20 Monkberry Moon Delight Monkberry Moon Delight Cover Art
21 The Song We Were Singing The Song We Were Singing Cover Art
22 Temporary Secretary Temporary Secretary Cover Art

This song is weird to be honest. It made me very confused when I first heard it.

I hate permanent secretaries now.

23 I Don't Know I Don't Know Cover Art
24 Jenny Wren Jenny Wren Cover Art
25 Ebony and Ivory Ebony and Ivory Cover Art
