Riff: Paul McCartney – “Save Us”

Oct 14, 2013

I can try to give you everything you wanted hard to/You’re not hard to please/The only thing I’m asking in return you can give with ease

from Save Us lyrics by Paul McCarttney

Sounding more urgent than he has in years, McCartney desperately pleads with his lover to keep the flames of their relationship burning bright – a running theme on New – on a vibrant and fast-paced album opener which features shades of Wings at their mid-70s peak; [LISTEN].
