Paul McCartney & Wings - Silly Love Songs

You'd think that people would've had enough of silly love songs
I look around me, and I see it isn't so
Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs
And what's wrong with that?
I'd like to know, 'cause here I go again

I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you

[Verse 1]
I can't explain, the feeling's plain to me (I love you)
Now can't you see?
Ah, she gave me more, she gave it all to me (I love you)
Now can't you see?
What's wrong with that?
I need to know, 'cause here I go again

I love you
I love you

Love doesn't come in a minute
Sometimes it doesn't come at all
I only know that when I'm in it
It isn't silly, love isn't silly, love isn't silly at all

In addition to a comment about "silly love songs" by John Lennon, McCartney had often been teased by music critics for writing lightweight songs, and he wrote this number in response. "Silly Love Songs" was McCartney's first foray into the then-popular disco sound, with his bass guitar taking a lead role against a steady disco-style drumbeat. As such, it was the forerunner for other 1960s-era British musicians trying their hand at disco; examples that followed included The Rolling Stones' "Miss You" and Rod Stewart's "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?". The song was included on the album, Wings at the Speed of Sound, and released as a single, which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and number two on the UK Singles Chart. It was not only one of the Wings' best-selling singles, but became one of the best-selling singles of the 1970s.[citation needed] The song lists at #31 on Billboard's Greatest Songs of all time.
