Paul McCartney’s first post-Beatles single, “Another Day,” was released in the U.S. 50 years ago today (February 22nd). The song “Maybe I’m Amazed” was on the album “McCartney” Despite considerable airplay on U.S. radio, McCartney refused to issue it or any other song from the album as a single. Here is Paul McCartney on writing “Maybe I’m Amazed.”

“‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ was a song that I wrote when Linda and I had first got together in our early days. And I was sitting at the piano and you know if I’m lucky, I play a couple of chords and a song starts to suggest itself. And in this case, I started thinking ‘Baby I’m Amazed,’ but then it started turning into ‘Maybe I’m Amazed,’ like maybe amazed isn’t the only word for it. You know like maybe I’m amazed, maybe I’m thrilled, whatever.”
