Paul McCartney Songs We Secretly Want to Hear at Minute Maid
Recorded for Cameron Crowe's similarly named mindfuck of a film, this cut gets largely overlooked in McCartney's canon. According to some fan sites, the lyrics were inspired by a waiter bringing McCartney the wrong food. I don't get it either.

The B-side of the single was something called "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reggae," which sounds like all kinds of awful.
