Toot toot, etc.
Here's a fairly obscure track which has, nevertheless, occasionally haunted my auditory cortex in the 32 years since it shot to number 60 in the charts. It's an odd little song, and it's an odd little video, especially the long shot of people just standing around. Credited solely to Wings, it's still clear who's calling the shots in the band: when Paul dances, Denny & Linda dance, Linda moving in the stiff but utterly guileless way that always outed her as someone without a musical bone in her body. Why Macca? Why now? Drop back at midnight and you'll find out.
