This week in 1973 the “Wings” album Red Rose Speedway hit the top of the albums chart in the USA. Its lead single, My Love, written by Paul McCartney as a love song to his wife (and Wings bandmate) Linda, started a four-week run at number 1 on the Hot 100. It was the band’s first number one.
On 23rd of August 1963 “She Loves You,” a song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney was released as a single by The Beatles in the United Kingdom. It became the best selling UK single of all time until 1977 when that record was broken by Paul McCartney and Wings with “Mull of Kintyre,” the first single to sell over two million copies in the UK.
