On This Day In Music History...
July 30, 1974: Band on the Run was #1 in the UK
"Band on the Run" is like the music equivalent of a 3 for 1 deal. It's literally 3 songs in 1 and I can't decide which part of the trio is my favourite. The whole song revolves around The Beatles' break-up and Paul's frustration with being in such an infamous band as confinement and then escape are huge themes in the lyrics. Lesson of the day? The best part of breaking up isn't "getting back your stuff", it's writing a sweet song out of the wreckage!
