November 1977: Paul McCartney's "Mull of Kintyre"






In the 1970's, after leaving The Beatles, Paul McCartney created Wings and enjoyed a string of international hits.

Wings was Paul, wife Linda and Denny Laine, who used to play with The Moody Blues. (There were others who came in and out during the decade)

Wings released over 20 singles and several albums.

Paul went solo in 1980 and stayed solo to this day.

Many Novembers ago, Paul McCartney recorded "Mull of Kintyre", one of the most interesting tunes from his amazing repertoire.

According to songfacts:
"The song is a tribute an island in Scotland where Paul and his wife Linda had a farm.

The Mull of Kintyre island is known for its beautiful scenery and tranquil atmosphere. "
The song went to # 1 in the UK and all over Europe. It did not do anything in the US. Nevertheless, it is one of my favorite McCartney tunes! And I love those pipes!

Here is the song:
