Give my regards to Paul McCartney
I've often wondered if Sir Paul McCartney looks back at his work during the 1980s with glee or horror. The former Beatle and Wings frontman -- who turns 65 years old today -- was a solo act by the time the 80s hit but he cranked out a slew of memorable singles, including a trio of dubious duos.
Surely his 1984 movie "Give My Regards to Broad Street" isn't a career highlight. Critic Roger Ebert wrote in his review, "I think you can safely skip the movie and proceed directly to the sound track."
Good advice. And there is plenty of music from the 80s to cherish.
Top 5 Paul McCartney songs from the 80s:
5. Pipes of Peace: "In love our problems disappear."

2. My Brave Face: "Ive been hitting the town and it didn't hit back."
1. Coming Up: "I want to help you with your problem. Stick around, I say."
Four guilty pleasures (really, REALLY guilty) from the 80s:
4. The Girl Is Mine: "I love you more than he."
