SONG FOR TODAY: Paul McCartney - Temporary Secretary

Happy 70th birthday Paul McCartney!

While hearing this for the first time on BBC 6Music a few months ago, I wondered who was responsible for such an insanely catchy tune. I presumed it was something that had been made recently, but to my utter surprise I was informed that this was in fact the work of Paul McCartney! A track that is very much ahead of its time, who would have thought that Macca would create possibly one of the first techno tracks! You can find this on the 1980 album 'McCartney II', which I will be listening to very soon... 

Underneath the embedded video for 'Temporary Secretary', you can listen to a playlist of Paul McCartney tracks on Spotify, which begins with eight classics before launching in to the recent deluxe reissue of the 'Ram' album, followed by his soundtrack for the 1967 film 'The Family Way'...
