Today’s Big Lewie #1 Song of the Day is “Listen To What the Man Said” by Paul McCartney & Wings.

Paul’s solo career got off to a rocky start in 1970 considering he sued fellow-Beatles John, George and Ringo.  Fans worldwide blamed him for formally ending the group.

By 1973, Paul was reborn with the formation of his new band, “Wings.” Criticism had waned in the face of the band’s new release, “Band On the Run.”

The follow-up LP in 1975 was “Venus and Mars.”  The album did not receive the acclaim of its predecessor, but today stands on its own with the title track and the reprise, and the #1 hit single,  “Listen To What the Man Said.”
