According to Rolling Stone magazine - http://www.rollingstone.com/music/lists/paul-mccartneys-40-greatest-solo-songs-w493547

The first thing that leaps out is how criminally underrated "Mull of Kintyre" is on this list. #37? RS ranks "The Back Seat of My Car," "Angry" amongst many others higher than that.

2/3 of the list, 27 songs in all were recorded in the 70s.

Lists like this are so subjective it's not worth arguing over. Personally, I find some of the choices -- and the order --pretty bizarre, but I'm okay with "Maybe I'm Amazed" as #1.

Just saw this pop up on the Internet. Assume that this is a new one.

It was 3 writers that did the compilation but they definitely started off on the wrong foot. They called Maybe I'm Amazed..."Baby I'm Amazed". The article lost all credibility for me right from the start.

Still wondered what others may feel about their list. Maybe someone can post the actual article here.

My biggest criticism as usual is that so many great songs from Tug of War onward was missing. They of course had many of the predictable one (the bigger hits) and most of those were justified. Still there were many that were listed but not as the level of the Solo songs I think are vastly superior.

I replied back and gave them an alternative 40 list that I said was as good or even a little better. If you see the article, you will see me listed in the "Replys" section at the end of the article.

I thought the list was well written, the short reviews hit the nail on the head so to speak. But to see Four Five Seconds on this list of Paul's "40 Greatest Songs" is ridiculous, especially while acknowledging he's barely on it. I have to roll my eyes at that one. Rolling Eyes Laughing
