“Too Many People” – Ram (1971)
After the controversial break-up of the Beatles, McCartney was the person to blame for his departure from the band. While it was only a rumor, a lot of people seemed to grip with that idea including John Lennon. And so Paul wrote a song about it. It highlights the singer’s ability to hide the negative lyrics under a blanket of its sweet tune.
“Jet” – Band On the Run (1974)
Jet was Linda and Paul’s black labrador dog, and that was the title inspiration. Inside Paul’s mind, he wanted to have a stadium-ready song, where people could bang their fists in the air. This was the song he created for that.
“Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey” – Ram (1971)
This was the first chart-topping hit of McCartney post-Beatles. It draws inspiration to the Beatles’ medleys in their album Abbey Road. John Lennon admitted that he liked this one.
“Silly Love Songs” – Wings at the Speed of Sound (1976)
This was McCartney’s response to every people who criticized him for becoming a “starry-eyed fool” about these silly love songs. He had the last laugh when the song became a chart-topping hit.
