        Eight Days a week
        Ballroom Dancing
        When I'm Sixty Four
        I should have known better
        Ebony and Ivory

        Eight Days a Week is one of my favorite Beatles song!! And I also like ISHKB.

          audi:

          Mrs. Pepper:
          WixRocks!:Songs I like that most don't...hmm...here we go again

          Beatles
          -I'll Get You
          -What You're Doing
          -The Word
          -What Goes On
          -Wait
          -Within You, Without You
          -When I'm Sixty Four
          -The Inner Light
          -Piggies
          -Honey Pie
          -Octopus's Garden

          Wings
          -I Am Your Singer
          -C Moon
          -Call Me Back Again
          -The Note You Never Wrote
          -Cook of The House
          -Name and Address

          Solo
          -Ebony and Ivory
          -"Give My Regards To Broad Street"
          -English Tea
          -Inch Worm

          Cool list I definitely agree with the following:

          -I'll Get You
          -What You're Doing
          -The Word
          -Wait
          -Honey Pie

          -English Tea

          and most of all:

          -Call me back again

          With the exception of "English Tea," I wasn't aware that I'll Get You, What You're Doing, The Word and Wait (isn't that a John song?) were generally unpopular.

          I agree! I think one person here made a derogatory comment about I'll Get You, but I like it and all the B's songs Mrs. Pepper and Wix mentioned. Wait is both J&P. Paul sings the middle eight ("I feel as though you ought to know, that I've been good as good as I can be...") and the high harmony.

            I think Motor of Love is the song I like most out of the songs that I don't think was well received by others...it's still not a 'perinial' favorite of mine...but I do like it and most don't.

            Also Freedom...I don't 'love' the song per se'...but I think it jams a long nicely (especially live) and the patriotic sentiment served it well at the time...when I hear the song now, I'm usually thrown back to the immediate aftermath of 9/11 in a very sadly sentimental way...and not thinking how poor or banal the song is (like I feel others do)

            I'm also a fan of Biker Like and Icon as well as Driving Rain (songs that had been bashed for lyric infractions of sorts - the latter especially due to the counting numbers involved in the lyrics)

            The flip side is that I'm not too high on Let Me Roll It, Junior's Farm or Lonely Road - songs I think that are generally received well by fans, but just don't seem to touch me in the same way

              audi:

              JoeySmith:
              SusyLuvsPaul:Ebony and Ivory and English Tea--the former especially doesn't get enough love. And I don't understand why.

              Sir Paul could do better than using a piano metaphor to discuss racial harmony!! The cheesy George Martin production doesnt help the tune.

              Paul has written 1 of the best tunes on this topic (Blackbird) & one of the worst (E&I).

              E&I's keyboard reference is a much better metaphor. The keys create harmony. Why don't we? Simple but effective.

              I don't think it's far-fetched to speculate that "Blackbird"'s meaning is completely lost on anyone who has not heard Paul's explanation. I would venture to guess that nobody knew its meaning until around 2002, when Paul started publicly sharing the meaning behind the song in his concerts and interviews.

              And it didn't help that The Beatles recording includes audio of an actual bird.

              I would've clearly guessed that Blackbird was about 'something' previously oppressed breaking out to spread it's wings and reaching new heights - and that's how Ive always thought of the song even before I heard Paul's story...in fact that was my instant impression and not something I came around after some long 'journey of discovery'...all Paul's story did was kinda put a 'face to the picture'...and it wasn't a great 'ah ha' moment since it only made sense that the song was made in the 60's when both women and african americans (and in fact other less talked about groups as well) faced great struggles while trying to gain liberties

                Today I want to add the complete London Town album to my list of songs I love which many people don't.

                  Mrs. Pepper:Today I want to add the complete London Town album to my list of songs I love which many people don't.

                  I love most of London Town, the only real weak spots for me are Children Children and Girlfriend, otherwise it's a really enjoyable listen. The album contains one of my favourite Wings songs ever Don't Let It Bring You Down, which for me is a masterpiece.

                    You are right about Don't let it bring you down, I only really got into it now but it's really good. And I think Morse Moose is brilliant!
                    I must say I even like Children Children and Girlfriend now. Girlfriend is an easy, happy tune.

                      London Town is one I don't own, but have Jacko's 'Off the Wall' which has his version of Girlfriend !
