      Here are some locations I thought of, in Paul songs. Can you think of others...

      Penny Lane, London Town, in the thick of it, India, Lindiana (?), the night, Venus and Mars, Cafe On The Left Bank, on the hill, in the ballroom, Mull of Kintyre, Liverpool, In the Heart of the Country, in the road, Highway, Junior's Farm, Old Siam, home, out there, the future, Riding to Vanity Fair, Vanilla Sky

        America, Mamunia, the U.S.S.R., Jaipur, The Long and Winding Road, Big Brass Bed, Ireland

              Dawg, johnnymain thought up some good 'uns, wish I had (am jelly), good job, johnny

              What song is "Big Red Barn" in? Or is that its title? Yeah I think it is, has the big barn bed, in it... Granddaddy used to a big red barn  in his  back yard. Makes me sad to know it's gone. (well, all things must pass away)

              Another Paul place in song: "Beautiful Night" I suppose the night (and day) could be construed as a location (?). 

              "Daytime/Nighttime Suffering" I quite fancy that one, Macca

              I think there's a very long blues number on a bootleg: "Atlantic Ocean"-- that little ditty goes on and on (like the ocean); seems interminable, like many blues songs.  it's cool, though

               

                It’s Big Barn Bed! 😂

                No “Big Red Barn” that I know of!

                  On the subject of Big Barn Bed, a few months ago I suggested (requested) the song for the 'jukebox' on a local BBC radio station... and they played it. Not a Wings song that's played very often on British radio I would have thought.

                    I was in my rental car in Cleveland, OH  and turned the radio on. It was tuned to a station that was having a ‘70s weekend. They then proceeded to play Let ‘Em In! Nearly ran off the road! 😂

                       It's funny, we can play these  songs whenever we like but its still a lovely surprise to hear one played unexpectedly on the radio.

                        Paul didn't write this one, but it's a song he sang with the Beatles, and later during his solo years... and is a location... so it sort of counts as one of his songs, lol

                                          This happened to me just this morning.  I went to my usual convenience store (a gas/food place called WAWA which is big in Philadelpia, New Jersey and now Florida.  Anyway, as I walked in to get my coffee, their playlist was playing "Pipes of Peace".  It really surprised me because they normally play Top 40 Pop.  Sounded great by the way and it was totally unexpected.  Maybe because it is the Christmas season and they are mixing in Christmas songs too.
