10. 'I've Just Seen A Face'

Like most of Paul McCartney's songs during this period, "I've Just Seen A Face" was inspired by the singer's absolute infatuation with English actress Jane Asher. He lived with her at her families house in the early days of the Beatles, and he wrote "I've Just Seen A Face" about his memory of their early days together. It might feel like a minor work to some, but Paul has performed it countless times over the years, from the 1976 Wings tour to his 1991 Unplugged special.
