Song facts

Momma Miss America” is a track of Paul McCartney’s debut solo album, McCartney, released in April 1970. From the press release of “McCartney“:

An instrumental recorded completely at home. Made up as I went along – first a sequence of chords, then a melody on top. Piano, drums, acoustic guitar, electric guitar. Originally it was two pieces but they ran into each other by accident and became one.

Paul McCartney, 1970

From PopMatters, 2010:

Momma Miss America” is another instrumental track on the McCartney album, as the only voice heard is that of an engineer announcing that this is take one of “Rock ‘n’ Roll Springtime”. That title was soon changed, as what was to become two separate songs “ran into each other by accident and became one”. Made up as McCartney went along, it was recorded entirely at his London home.

McCartney’s only recent involvement with the song is its inclusion on The McCartney Years box DVD set. (It is used as background music on Disc 2’s “Chronology” menu.)

Momma Miss America“, along with “Singalong Junk“, was included on the soundtrack of the 1996 movie, “Jerry Maguire“, featuring Tom Cruise.
