Face the Music - Sally G - Paul McCartney

Happy Birthday to Sir Paul McCartney, who turned 70 on Monday of this week. 

Thanks to my older brothers, I've been a big fan of The Beatles nearly all my life.  The Beatles had split up by the time I bought my first 45 rpm record.  I was 10 years old and the record was "Band On The Run" by Paul McCartney and Wings.  Later that same year (1974), Sir Paul and Wings released "Junior's Farm", which I also bought as a 45.  Sally G was on the B side, and it's a full-fledged country song, recorded in Nashville and everything.  Originally released only as a single, it did quite well on the Billboard country charts.

For the record, while I like the music of all of the Beatles, both collectively and individually, it was John, not Paul, who was my favorite.  Kat, on the other hand, is crazy about Paul.
