  • McCartney recorded a reggae-style instrumental version under the pseudonym Percy "Thrills" Thrillington for the 1977 album Thrillington. He hoped to fool the public into thinking Percy was a real guy, a socialite trying to make it in the music business, and even placed ads in the UK music magazines about Percy's activities. The album garnered little attention, but when critics noticed the liner notes mentioned McCartney as a friend, they started to put two and two together. In 1989, he finally fessed up to the ruse at a Los Angeles press conference: "The world needs to know! But seriously it was me and Linda – and we kept it a secret for a long time but now the world knows! – you blew it!"

  • Dane from Vancouver, BcSimply a great pop/rock song, awesome guitar riff and equally great vocals by Paul. The high singing notes he hits at the end of the chorus are brilliant. Cheers.
