Paul McCartney - Goodnight Tonight on All The Best (1979)

Paul McCartney - Goodnight Tonight
"Goodnight Tonight" is a single by the band Wings notable for its disco-inflected sound and spirited flamenco guitar break. It peaked at number five in both the United Kingdom and United States during 1979.

The track did not appear on Wings' then-current album Back to the Egg (from which sessions this song was recorded); it was later included on the McCartney compilations All the Best! (1987) and Wingspan: Hits and History (2001). The 7" version was released as a bonus track on the 1993 remastered CD of McCartney II, as part of The Paul McCartney Collection. The B-side of this single was "Daytime Nighttime Suffering". An extended version of the song appears on a digital iTunes re-issue of Back to the Egg.

Band on the Run (song) by Paul McCartney and Wings from the album Band on the Run

Band on the Run (song) by Paul McCartney and Wings from the album Band on the Run


Band on the Run is the title song from Paul McCartney and Wings' Band on the Run album. The single sold one million copies in 1974 in the U.S., where it reached number 1, and it went to number 3 in the UK.

The song is a three part medley. The parts are thematically related, but do not necessarily form a continuous narrative. Paul McCartney was inspired by George Harrison in the first line of the second part of the medley: "If we ever get out of here." He reportedly said these words during one of the Beatles' many business meetings.

The U.S. radio edit was 3:50 in length. The difference was largely caused by the removal of the middle or the second part of the song, as well as the verse that starts with "Well, the undertaker drew a heavy sigh..."

The single was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America for sales of over one million copies. The song features prominently on all McCartney/Wings compilations as well as McCartney's live shows. It was the second of five number-one singles for the band on the Billboard Hot 100. Billboard ranked it number 22 on its Top Pop Singles of 1974 year-end chart.
