My Love Does It Good

On this day in 1973, Paul McCartney’s My Love hit Number 1 on the Billboard chart. It was the first Number 1 hit with his group Wings, and a love song written for his wife Linda. I love the lyrics: “Only my love holds the other key to me.”

Let’s watch Paul McCartney and Wings perform it here.

And here are other Paul classics:

Goodnight Tonight

Let ‘Em In

With A Little Luck

Silly Love Songs
