Boogie Woogie

Remember the late 70s when everyone from Mike Oldfield to The Beach boys tried their hands at disco? I’m sure this will divide opinion but one of my favourites is Wings’ Goodnight Tonight. Macca tackles the genre with his usual gusto (and a Spanish guitar solo).

This is the 12-inch version which I believe has never been released on CD.

Wings – Goodnight Tonight (1979)

One of my favourite Macca tracks. Reminds me (or influenced) Haircut 100...

So glad the first comment was positive.

You caught me nipping out for more beer/wine. I wasn't sure how this would go so I'm pleased with the responses so far.

I've just got on from a few scoops but you can track it all back to Bowie - who did Young Americans and soft soul. The Stones followed suit, peaking with Miss You - which was reworked by Rod into Do Ya Think I'm Sexy. Then Every Bugger got on the bandwagon..

I also love Coming Up...and Old Siam Sir isn't bad either

Just listen to that Bass. It's the work of the greatest Bass player to walk the planet.Well, he always was the heartbeat of the Beatles.
And Mondo's right about 'Comimg Up' and 'Old Siam sir'.I can just imagine The beatles as a unit getting their magic around those two.

Yep, I always thought it was a great track, I love the musical break in the middle as well - nice!

Mondo,
I remember your post from a while back. I was planning to post this song along with some other examples and you beat me to it with a well written piece that would have made me look like a hopeless plagiarist had I gone ahead with it.

The Wings song from that era I've been enjoying recently is 'Getting Closer'. A neglected pop/rock gem.

Raymond,
A little bit of hyperbole in your comment there if you don't mind me saying.

Mayor of Simpleton,
Agreed. And judging from your handle you're also a fan of one of my other favourite bands.
