Song of the Week: The Song We Were Singing

In case you've been living underground for the past couple weeks, you've no doubt seen the hype surrounding the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles' arrival on the Ed Sullivan Show, February 9, 1964. Even before the hype, I had it in my mind to celebrate this event by kicking off a series of related Song of the Week posts. For the next couple weeks, I'm going to be picking a favorite song off of each of their studio albums. The wrinkle is that, where possible, I'm going to pick from the lesser known songs, instead of their hits. Should be fun.

To kick this off, here's a song from Paul McCartney's Flaming Pie. He recorded this album in 1997 after the success of The Beatles Anthology release. "The Song We Were Singing" is Paul reminiscing about his Beatles days, how, for them, it was always about the music.
