The Musical Genius
Paul McCartney is a prolific songwriter, enough said. With a career spanning more than six decades, he has given us such a rich catalog of stellar music as a solo artist, as a member of Wings and of course, as one of the pillars of The Fab Four.
So we’re listing down the 10 greatest songs he has ever written for The Beatles that practically changed our lives.
10. “And I Love Her” (1964)
According to McCartney, it’s “the first ballad I impressed myself with” and we can’t help but agree.
9. “All My Loving” (1963)
You have to be made of stone not to get all teary and emotional once this comes on.
8. “I Saw Her Standing There” (1963)
Once upon a time, music was THIS good. This is the real deal, people.
7. “The Fool on the Hill” (1967)
This makes you want to go back to the ’60s – ah, glorious times.
6. “Blackbird” (1968)
Is this the best song ever OR is this THE BEST SONG EVER?
5. “Hey Jude” (1968)
There are two types of people in this world – those who like this song and those with poor taste in music.
4. “Helter Skelter” (1968)
This was heavy before “heavy metal” was actually a thing.
3. “Yesterday” (1965)
Break-up or not, this will tug on your heartstrings.
2. “Got To Get You Into My Life” (1966)
Only Paul McCartney could write an “ode to pot” that sounds this stellar.
1. “Eleanor Rigby” (1966)
Our only issue with the song – it’s way too short. Epic masterpieces like this should not end.
