Song facts

Singalong Junk” is an instrumental version of “Junk“, both songs appearing on the first solo album of McCartney, released in 1970.

An instrumental version of “Junk” was first performed live during McCartney’s appearance on MTV Unplugged on 25 January 1991, and was titled “Junk” – instead of “Singalong Junk” – when appearing on the Unplugged (The Official Bootleg) album

See “Junk” for more details.

From the press release:

This was take 1, for the vocal version, which was take 2, and a shorter version.

Guitars, and piano and bass, were put on at home, and the rest added at Morgan Studios. The strings are Mellotron, and they were done at the same time as the electric guitar, bass drum, and sizzle cymbal.

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