Song of the day: Paul McCartney & Wings- Mrs. Vandebilt


This is a great song by the Wings, the band which worked with Paul McCartney after his Beatles period. The song was a single from the album Band on the Run, however, it was no single in the UK or US… The song opens with a lightely changed catchphrase from Charlie Chester. The end was also influenced by Charlie Chester, especially his effect on the studio audience. Most of the laughter at the end of Mrs. Vandebilt was by the Wings, who couldn’t stop laughing because these people were laughing. The song also has a (great) saxophone solo from Howie Casey. The thing that is special about this song, is that the power failed during the recording, which made that they had to do the recording with the back-up generators. Later they put the thing together… Enjoy
