I’ve Had Enough

Sortie : le 16 juin 1978

Autre single assurant la promotion du nouvel album, London Town.

En face B : Deliver your children, une très belle collaboration McCartney/Laine

 

 

The song was written and sung by Paul McCartney. The music and an improvised chorus were recorded on board the boat Fair Carol in the Virgin Islands prior to the departure of Wings’ lead guitarist Jimmy McCulloch and drummer Joe English.According to McCartney, they didn’t have any of the words until the band returned to London from the Fair Carol recording sessions. He then wrote « a few » words and overdubbed the lyrics in London.[6] McCartney referred to it as « just one of those ‘fed up’ songs. »

Mull of Kintyre

Sortie : le 11 novembre 1976   Quand Paul renoue avec les records… Mull of Kintyre est le premier single à dépasser les 2 millions de copies vendues au UK, ce depuis She Loves You en 1963. Seul le « Do they know it’s Christmas » du Band Aid fera mieux en 1984, et Paul était présent sur la face B… Ce sera bien sûr le Number One de l’année. Les paroles évoquent le Kintyre, petite péninsule écossaise où Paul a une ferme depuis 1966.

McCartney explained how the song came into being: I certainly loved Scotland enough, so I came up with a song about where we were living; an area called Mull of Kintyre. It was a love song really, about how I enjoyed being there and imagining I was travelling away and wanting to get back there.
