347. Paul McCartney, 'Maybe I'm Amazed'

Writer: McCartney
Producer: McCartney
Released: April '70, Apple
13 weeks; No. 10

"Maybe I’m Amazed" first appeared on McCartney, which Paul made single-handedly (Linda helped with the harmonies) as the Beatles were dissolving. McCartney dedicated it to "me and Linda with the Beatles breaking up. Maybe I’m amazed at what’s going on, maybe I’m not." The song’s biggest success came in 1977, when a live version from Wings Over America went to the Top 10.
