2. “Silly Love Songs”
When this song came out, it was mocked by critics–which we think was the cheeky point McCartney was trying to make. Now “Silly Love Songs” is practically iconic as a song about why to not give up on lyrical romanticism.
You’d think that people would have had enough of silly love songs/But I look around me and I see it isn’t so/Some people wanna fill the world with silly love songs/And what’s wrong with that?/I’d like to know, ’cause here I go again/I love you, I love you
