Containing Multitudes Since 2004
I have long imagined the following cartoon: Two angel choirmasters are standing in front of a heavenly chapel from which hordes of angels fly holding their ears. One says to the other: "I don't understand it. They said she used to sing with McCartney!"
Their pairing on recordings is a good definition of true love.
Ram is perhaps McCartney's best and most consistent post-Beatles album, despite the many unsubtle jabs at Lennon.
Not just Lennon, but all the remaining Beatles, really. There's speculation that the song 3 Legs refers to John, George & Ringo, as if that was McCartney's nickname for the others, collectively. Too Many People kinda speaks for itself as well.
3 Legs for sure but some claim Dear Boy was a Lennon jab as well which I always thought was a bit of a stretch. I believe him when he says it was about Linda's first husband because, well, it so obviously is. And I think Linda sounds fine on her backing vocals. Not the strongest singer in the world but her voice is very much a part of this album's charm.
