Best Songs From Paul McCartney & Wings' Band on the Run Album

Released in 1973, Band on the Run is Paul McCartney's, and probably any Beatles', most critically acclaimed solo album. It tells the story of a rock band escaping from jail. I couldn't believe that this list didn't exist yet, so I added it myself. And I haven't added Helen Wheels because it didn't appear on the UK version of the original release.

The Top Ten

1 Band On the Run

... my brother's favourite... - PetSounds

2 Jet

Jet is a pop masterpiece! Melody and ENERGY! IF one needs to pick a "best" off of the the Band On The Run album why not Jet? Can't go wrong!... However if one were to throw the other tracks on this album in a hat and pick "the best" randomly... That would work too! Fact is the Band On The Run album is, perhaps, the ONLY post Beatles album to stand up BOLDLY to The Beatles' discography... PAUL nails a full blown, real deal MASTERPIECE with the Band On The Run album!

3 Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five
4 Bluebird

... my mother's favourite... - PetSounds

5 Let Me Roll It

Great rock and roll riff, and homage (if you can call it that) to his former best buddy and band mate John Lennon.

Simple yet brilliant, bridge is the best part

6 Mrs. Vandebilt

Too low!

7 No Words
8 Picasso's Last Words (Drink to Me)

... and my favourite! - PetSounds

9 Helen Wheels

Worthy at least of being in the top 5. Compared to a lot of his other solo stuff, it rocks! - Gg2000

This is not the worst

Such a great rocker.

10 Mamunia

Beautiful song. Extremely underrated and one of Paul's best

I should have put this higher... - PetSounds

Should be top 5
