OK, more Macca: This 1970 Paul and Linda McCartney collaboration was the first single of Paul's solo career and remains one of this finest post-Beatles works. It peaked at #5 in the U.S. and at #2 in the UK. A woman's seemingly average life belies her disappointments, sadness, isolation, unfulfilled hopes and ultimate breakdown. Part of the "50 First Dates" ('04) and "The Lovely Bones" ('09) soundtracks.
Yesterday's answer: "Seven Year Ache" by Roseanne Cash. In my humble opinion the BEST thing that Johnny Cash ever did was giving us Roseanne! Actually my favorite one of her songs is "If You Change Your Mind" from "King's Record Shop" - one of those albums that I'd like to have with me if I were stranded on a deserted island.
