No Fake Friday - Silly Love Songs (Wings cover)

When your wife asks you to cover a song for No Fake Friday, and it's close to Valentine's Day? It's a good move to honor that request.


It doesn't hurt that I adore the bass line in this song. This was one of the 45's in my parents' record collection, so I grew up with this composition. Incredibly fun to play, and definitely a bit of a challenge. I love the staggered vocal parts too.


I do think Wings doesn't get as much love as the band deserves. Anything that Paul McCartney was going to do after the Beatles was probably going to fall short of that band when it comes to public opinion, but there are some super solid songs in the Wings catalog.
