Song facts

During the January ’80 rehearsals for the Wings Japan Tour, Paul is heard singing one line of “Video killed the radio star“, referencing the 1979 hit by the Buggles. Paul would later collaborate with Trevor Horn, one of the co-writers and performers of the song, for his 1989 Flowers In The Dirt album.
