Silly Love Songs - Wings/McCartney
I’ve seen McCartney twice. The first time I knew I was going to emotional during the Long and Winding Road, and I did. However, I was not prepared for Silly Love Songs. I did. Something about the era. I was a kid. That song was all over the radio. I recall sitting in the back of our Gran Torino wagon hearing it.

I'm sure we all suffer from the occasional earworm. That song that you just can't get out of your head, sometimes for days on end.

I recently got interested in trying out playing bass. I bought a Fender Rumble 25 and a cheap Ibanez short scale bass. I've been having a blast learning some pretty easy, recognizable songs. But man, the earworms.

All day long I'm hearing Lady Madonna, Come Together, Stand By Me, Three Little Birds...It's like my mind is practicing the songs over and over. Must be a bass line thing because it doesn't often happen when I'm working on guitar songs.
Robbie Shakespeare 's Bass lines get in my head for days , and I Like it.

The harmonies and production are epic like a grand panoramic movie,
but it is Carol Kaye's driving bass that leads the song that makes it so stellar:
