24. "Hope of Deliverance"
"It's an international message with a Latin
American flavor," McCartney said of this uplifting anthem, where he trades
Spanish guitar solos with Robbie McIntosh over syncopated rhythms, with a
first-take immediacy. It wasn't a hit in the U.S. – but it was huge in
post–Cold War Eastern Europe, where its optimism had fresh, deep resonance.
