Mull of Kintyre (1977)

“Mull of Kintyre” is a song written by Paul McCartney and Denny Laine and performed by Wings. The song was written in tribute to the picturesque Kintyre peninsula in Scotland, where McCartney has owned High Park Farm since 1966, and its headland, the Mull of Kintyre.

The song was Wings’ biggest hit in the United Kingdom where it became the 1977 Christmas number one, and was the first single to sell over two million copies in the UK

  1. The song was actually composed by Denny Laine alone, but the rules in the Wings was that all recorded songs belonged to the band and not the individual composer. If I don’t remember wrong, it lead to Laine leaving the band after a disagreement 😉
