Hey everyone! This is my first post here on the Maccaboard, but I imagine I'll inevitably spend a lot of time here. I've been a Beatles and Paul fan since I was eight years old, and the obsession is running as deep as ever recently. I'm really excited to get to know some of you and hopefully have some great discussion.
I'm working on a project concerning Paul's solo work and I could use your input, especially if you're very familiar with all aspects of his post-Beatles career. I've compiled this list of songs, broken up by album. As you can see, there are a few hits included, a lot of deep album tracks and B-sides, and some well-known unreleased songs as well. I'm aware that it looks completely random, but it should all make sense when the project is done. What I need from you is to go through this list and choose your 25 favorite songs! They do not need to be in any particular order.
If you'd like, you can comment with your top 25 in this thread, though I'd be especially happy if you filled out this Google form with your answers. Either way, I appreciate you taking the time to do it and if you're interested, I'll be sure to clue you in when the project is completed!
nofaithmed11, Welcome to Maccaboard.
There are a bunch of Paul Solo, Wings and Post Beatles Fans on Maccaboard. Personally, I've been a fan of Paul and the Beatles since 1964 (I was 15 years old). For a whole host of reasons, Paul was always my favorite Beatle but I loved them all.
Recently, I did a Post here where I was proposing suggestions for a true Paul McCartney Post Beatles Anthology done by Decade. Essentially, you would have 5 Cd's by each Decade starting with 1970-1979. With each Decade, I was putting a CD list together of 20-25 Songs filled with Less publicized and Deeper Cuts from each Album, A & B singles not included on the corresponding albums, Unreleased songs from various album sessions, rare live versions etc etc. I have bought almost all of Paul's albums but when it came to his Compilations I have been disatisfied for the most part. There have too many duplications and gaps from the various eras of Paul's full career.
Anyway, please fee free to check my post and any imput would be appreciated. Check out my 5 Decade lists and let me know if I have missed any particular favorites of yours. This is not a "Greatest Hits" list so any suggestion would be much appreciated. Thanks BJ Conlee
