Morning Song – Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey

June 15, 2016

Paul McCartney’s “Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey” shouldn’t even be a song, let alone his first US #1 hit after the breakup of The Beatles.

But McCartney at his best had a genius for taking bits and pieces of music—“songlets”, a verse here, a chorus there, a stray sound effect, an ear-catching horn riff, a satisfying guitar lead, a sweet vocal harmony—and stitching them together, not so they made sense (they don’t), but so they’re enjoyable.

And that’s not nothing.
