Shades Of The Seventies

I switch on the TV just in time to catch footage of Wings performing Mull of Kintyre on the Mike Yarwood Show.

Linda is sitting bolt upright on a high stool between Paul and Denny, looking gravely from one to the other as they strum their guitars and sing. The poor girl doesn't even have a tambourine to shake.

The studio fills with mist. When it clears the trio are surrounded by bagpipers in kilts and bearskins.

La la la la
Mull of Kintyre

Say what you like it's a lovely tune.

Wings fade out and next up are Boney M singing Ra Ra Rasputine.

What a sweet and silly decade.
