Paul McCartney - Tug Of War download album

Tug of War is the third solo studio album by Paul McCartney, released in April 1982. It was McCartney's first album released after the dissolution of Wings in April, 1981. Overall it was his 11th album since the break up of the Beatles. It was also McCartney's first album after the murder of former songwriting partner John Lennon. The album was produced by former Beatles producer George Martin and was a number one hit in many countries. Some critics hailed it as a return to form for McCartney

Tug Of War was Paul’s first solo album after Wings’ split was confirmed, and followed the death of John Lennon, whose memory is poignantly evoked on the track ‘Here Today’. While the title hints at an album about power struggles, Paul saw it more as an album of opposites. As he says, it focuses on duality. Yes and No, Up and Down, Man and Woman. Always some kind of conflict, even if you’re married and in love, she’s still a girl, you’re still a bo. t’s not easy to bring together two sides of a coin. The album saw him reunite with producer George Martin and included two duets with Stevie.

Paul McCartney Lyrics. It's A Tug Of War What With One Thing And Another It's A Tug Of War We Expected More But With One Thing And Another We Were Trying To Outdo Each Other In A Tug Of War. In Another World In Another World We Could Stand On Top Of The Mountain With Our Flag Unfurled In A Time To Come In A Time To Come We Will Be Dancing To The Beat Played On A Different Drum. Tug Of War Take It Away Somebody Who Cares What's That You're Doing? Here Today Ballroom Dancing The Pound Is Sinking Wanderlust Get It Be What You See Dress Me Up As A Robber Ebony And Ivory.

Tug of War" was the title track from Paul McCartney's 1982 album, his first after the assassination of John Lennon in 1980. The album was a reunion of sorts - production was handled by Beatles producer George Martin, and Ringo Starr is featured on drums here and there. Upon release Tug of War was viewed as a strong comeback album, in comparison to prior efforts. The song itself is a baroque pop masterpiece.
