Introduction

Paul McCartney's 15th studio album, Kisses on the Bottom, is a collection of covers of Hit Parade-era songs that he loved while growing up. McCartney, of course, has compiled an incredible songbook of his own, and not just with his little band called the Beatles: 34 of his solo singles have made the U.S. Top 40. Some of them – "Band on the Run," "Live and Let Die" – are as ubiquitous as his greatest work with the old band. Following is a selection of the highest highs of McCartney's four-decade solo career, including some of his biggest hits and best album tracks.
