Gloriously silly stuff.
Ringo gets to sing, and remind us that clenching one's buttocks whilst furrowing the brow does not a better world make.

Its a crackin little cheeky song that, u'd have to be mad to take it seriously!!

Although since you mention live and let die, im sure you would of been impressed with the onstage an above stage firework display when Mcartney sung live an let die at glastonury last year. Finished the show an went off like a bomb.

It was a good old beatlesy sing song when he wasnt playin his new stuff which he didnt much at all.

I would argue that the song is actually considerably more serious than it seems. With the turmoil the band was in at the time, I'm sure Ringo's sentiments weren't far out of phase with the lyrics. He's certainly singing with a little harsher emotion in his voice than other instances where he sang.

As for Wings, I'll take Band on the Run any day.

Touche Turtle. He did actually write when he escaped off somewhere while all the chaos was goin on didnt he. I was readin about this in 'postcards from the boys' over christmas. Funny little book that. Were they all sent postcards to each other and he's collaborated a load of his into this book with his thoughts. Guess what I got as a stocking filler!!!

Yeah they are good and so are Floyd but at the mo........

The best thing about Live and Let Die was the movie...mostly due to the huge amount of herps in it (including a rare (at that time) Emerald tree boa) and the 7-UP guy with that wicked laugh. Oh yeah, and the hot girls, of course!!!

learn summit knew everyday, constrictors with VD :shock: . Should keep one foot on the floor

Shame S.O.A.D or Tenpole Tudor didn't pen OG 1st though the Fab 3 (McCartney gets my back up :mad: ) could do no wrong once they dumped "rock'n'roll"
