Lyric Tuesday – Band On The Run

Its Lyric Tuesday and posting this one later at night as I hadn’t put it together earlier.

Paul McCartney is a huge musical figure from the 20th Century. Some people love him and others not so. I am a lover and have enjoyed his musical talents and offerings all my life. I grew up surrounded by Beatle music but it was the Wings incarnation which came along in the 70s that I will blog about tonight.

The Wings Band On the Run Album is featured here.

The song became a hit – I always liked it because it was a song which had hooky chords and told a story. The theme of escape and freedom must have spoken to my little boy’s mind as this 10 year old tried to make sense of his world. It is a poppy little tune which I do admit a soft spot for.

I hope you are enjoying Lyric Tuesdays – they are fun to put together – maybe I’ll jump a couple of decades for next Tuesday.
