The #1 song for this week, in June of 1976, was “Silly Love Songs” by (Paul McCartney &) Wings. The song originally appeared on the L.P., Wings at the Speed of Sound in March ’76.

At the end of 1976, a live version of the tune appeared on the Wings Over America album.

Here are two excellent videos for “Silly Love Songs.” The first is from the recently-re-released on Blu-ray, Rockshow film and the second appears to be the official video. Take your pick or watch them both. The second has some nice on-tour footage and 70s-era fans and locales.
