I really really love most of the songs cited in this thread, so I was about to bust a gut reading this. Really weirded out.
But granted, a few Macca ditties or parts of 'em almost make me cringe--"Average Person,' the jarring parts in "Nod Your Head,' "Waterfalls' sounds weird and droning but I've not heard it much, sometimes "Temporary Secretary' gets to me, there's a few others can't think of right now.
Oh yeah the few obvious throwaways inexplicably left in, like "Tug of Peace" on "Pipes of Peace" I think it was, and such. The obvious inferiors not fully thought out or not much there to begin with. Attributed, perhaps, to Paul have a' ditsy Gemini' moment. :
oooh i love that one too, Claudia, Seal's "Kiss From a Rose"
"Take On Me"-- by A-Ha
Played about a billion gazillion times on radio and MTV in the 8o's
"Don't You Forget About Me" by the guy who was married to Chrissie Hynde--oh yeah his band was "Simple Minds" and he's Jim Kerr.( I think)
gawd, did I get sick of hearing that one, although I kind of liked it
theme song from one of my favorite movies, "Same Time Next Year" with Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyin. One of my fave songs too, I must confess. It just sounds so darn romantic ops:
