   It seems that Paul wrote the song in the late 70's and 
   performed it with Wings on 1979, but he didn't release 
   it until his "solo" album, McCARTNEY II (1980), when he 
   di it as a single with the live version, recorded with 
   Wings during a concert in Glasgow in 1979 , as B side. 
   DJs began playing the live version and it was that which 
   hit number one. Paul & Linda are the only people in the 
   video and play all the band members roles (Paul adopted 
   the looks of, Buddy Holly, Frank Zappa and Ginger Baker 
   among others and also a 1964 Beatle version of himself. 
   It was a number one hit in the UK for two weeks from the
   31st May 1980.
