Paul McCartney – Maybe I’m Amazed At 50

Paul McCartney – Maybe I’m Amazed At 50

Paul McCartney has a reason to celebrate! ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ turns 50. Furthermore, it is a song he writes and dedicates to his wife Linda.  McCartney wrote the song in 1969, just before the Beatles’ break-up. He credits his wife Linda with helping him get through the difficult time.

Even though McCartney Records his debut album at his home in London. On the same day he records “Every Night” he also records “Maybe I’m Amazed” in its entirety at Abbey Road studios.  Also, he plays all the instruments: guitars, bass, piano, organ, and drums.

Even though McCartney declines to release the song as a single in 1970, it nonetheless receives a great deal of radio airplay worldwide.  In a late 2009 Q&A with journalists held in London to promote his live album Good Evening New York City, McCartney said “Maybe I’m Amazed” is “the song he would like to be remembered for in the future”. 

Also, it’s a fan favorite and a staple at his live shows. The music video below features Linda McCartney’s photography in its full HD remastered vibrancy. For us fans, it’s a chance to enjoy McCartney singing one of his finest love songs.
