Song of the Day #4,131: ‘Let Me Roll It’ – Paul McCartney & Wings

It’s appropriate coming off three weeks dedicated to 1973 that today’s Random Weekend selection appears on another album from that year.

Band on the Run was the third album by Paul McCartney & Wings and their most successful. It is also the top-selling album of McCartney’s career outside The Beatles, reaching the #1 spot in five countries.

‘Let Me Roll It’ is a very John Lennon-esque track, though McCartney dismissed that suggestion. Come on, though… this would have been right at home on one of Lennon’s early solo albums.

[Verse 1]
You gave me something, I understand
You gave me loving in the palm of my hand

[Pre-Chorus]
I can’t tell you how I feel
My heart is like a wheel

[Chorus]
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you

[Verse 2]
I want to tell you, and now’s the time
I want to tell you that you’re going to be mine

[Pre-Chorus]
I can’t tell you how I feel
My heart is like a wheel

[Chorus]
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you

[Pre-Chorus]
I can’t tell you how I feel
My heart is like a wheel

[Chorus]
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you

[Verse 1]
You gave me something, I understand
You gave me loving in the palm of my hand

[Pre-Chorus]
I can’t tell you how I feel
My heart is like a wheel

[Chorus]
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you

    It’s so funny – they just played this on Howard Stern and had a discussion about how McCartney was trying to imitate Lennon. Also, they were talking about how great the guitar lick is and debating if it was easy or hard to play.
