10 Underappreciated Paul McCartney Songs
Ten songs from Paul McCartney's solo career that just don't get the love they deserve.
"Big Barn Bed" from Red Rose Speedway (Wings, 1973)
Speaking of Red Rose Speedway, here's that album's opening track, "Big Barn Bed."
Like several of McCartney's much more successful tunes, "Big Barn Bed's" simplicity is its strong point, right down to Henry McCullough's basic guitar riff in the song's intro. The soaring harmonies, shimmering acoustic guitars and weird but fun lyrics about big barn beds (huh?) and leaping armadillos don't hurt, either.
As a side note, McCullough, Wings' original lead guitarist, recorded a new version of "Big Barn Bed" for his 2011 solo album, Unfinished Business. But, um, you should probably start with the Wings version.
