Happy birthday, Paul McCartney! In honor of the Beatle’s 70th birthday, the DMDB presents its list of his best songs solo, with Wings (W) and with The Beatles (B). For the latter, songs which featured Paul as the primary writer or singer were included as were those which jointly tapped his efforts along with another Beatle. Songs which make the DMDB’s top 1000 of all time list (DMDB 1000) or hit #1 in the U.S. (#1 U.S.) are noted.

The rankings are determined by aggregating multiple best-of lists and factoring in songs’ sales, chart stats, and appearances on compilations.
