Sir James Paul McCartney's music career obviously dates to way before our favorite decade, after all, if you do not know who the Beatles were, then it is probably best you get back under the rock you just crawled out from. The Beatles were in action throughout the 1960's, and by the 1970's, he not only had a successful solo career, but also a career with the band Wings.
For the purposes of covering great music, and also for the fact that we lived through most of the 1970's as well, we include some of McCartney's (with and without Wings) great 70's hits. Some songs you may remember include "C-Moon", "My Love", "Live and Let Die", "Jet", "Band on the Run", "Listen to What the Man Said", "Silly Love Songs", "Let 'Em In", and "Mull of Kintyre".
By the time the 80s' rolled around, McCartney was on a role. Some of his 80's hit tunes were the songs "Coming Up", "Spies Like Us", "Pipes of Peace", "No More Lonely Nights", "We All Stand Together", the two duets with Michael Jackson, "Say, Say, Say" and "The Girl is Mine", and lastly the due with Stevie Wonder ("Ebony and Ivory").
