Vocal Coach Reacts to Paul McCartney and Wings – Band On The Run – Jet – Live

The Beatles were masters at using tempo changes to create incredible songs and Paul McCartney continued with his skillful use of them when he ventured off on his own.

I’ll be reacting to a couple of tunes he did with his band Wings and the first song is “Band on the Run”.

The song was apparently inspired by a comment George Harrison had made back when the Beatles were still together and was in reference to the band trying to break free from their management situation.

The song was released in 1974 and was a huge success for the band and was Paul’s third chart-topping single since leaving the Beatles.

It went on to be certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America for sales of over one million copies.

We’ll also be checking out an earlier performance of McCartney and Wings singing “Jet” which was released prior to “Band on the Run”.

The inspiration for the song has varied from reports of it being about McCartney’s lab, to a pony, as well as it being about experiences he had when meeting his wife Linda.

The song ended up reaching number 7 on both American and British charts and has become one of the band’s most popular tunes.

I hope you enjoy the video and let me know what you thought of his performances.

“It’s awesome. The private sections of the forum are worth the price of admission alone. I struggled with 2 different tertiary (university Level) level teachers (6 months each about 8 years ago) telling me my voice just wouldn’t be able to do what i wanted to be able to do and even if it could, the material i wanted to be able to sing would be too ‘Dangerous.’ Absolute rubbish. If you do the work thats laid out in this course, you are golden, I started in March Last year struggling to hit the E4 note in ‘Under the Bridge’ chorus now I can sing this stuff:
Honestly man, you are not going to find a bad review here. The course and this forum completely demystifies every single aspect of great singing. Just be prepared to do the work.”
