"Whoa!

What the hell gives the right
To tell me what to do with my life?
Especially when you made a mess
Of every chance you had of success.
Look at you,
Just look at you,
I said, I'm angry just looking at you.

Well, I'm sick and tired of sitting back
And listening to all of your clap-trap. (clap-trap)
If you could get me take the rap, I guarantee
You'd leave me with a backslap. (backslap)
Push me to the left, push me to the right,
Try to take me out of the way.
Even if you knock me off the edge of the world,
You're still gonna hear me say:

What the hell gives you the right
To tell me what to do with my life?
Especially when you made a mess
Of every chance you have of success.
Look at you,
Oh, look at you,
I said, I'm angry just looking at you.

Shouting down again, mahama, shouting down again.
Shouting down again, mahama, shouting down again.

Ow!
Oh!

Oh-oh!
Oh, oh, now, hah, hah, hah!
Hubbah, shout it out! Shout it out!

I can't begin to tell you all the reasons
Why you're making me crazy. (crazy)
I've got so many answers, like you're stupid,
Like you're crooked, like you're lazy. (lazy)
Hit me with your left, hit me with your right,
Hit me from the top to the toe.
Even when you chew me up and spit me out,
I'm still gonna want to know.

What the hell gives the right
To tell me what to do with my life?
Especially when you made a mess
Of every chance you had of success.
Look at you,
Look at you,
I said, I'm angry just looking at you.

Looking, shouting, look out!

Shouting down again, mahama, shouting down again.
Shouting down again, mahama, shouting down again.

Whoa!

Can't you hear me telling you?
Come on, babe, shout it down! Shout it down!

Shout it down!
Shout it down!
Shout it down!
Shout it down! Oo-ee, baby, oo-ee, baby.
Shout it down!
Shout it down!
Shout it down!

What the hell gives you the right?"

PRESS TO PLAY
After the box office flop of the film Give My Regards to Broad Street, McCartney decided that it was time for a change of pace in his career. In an attempt to give his music a more contemporary sound, he joined forces with Hugh Padgham, an in-demand producer famed for having recorded Peter Gabriel, Genesis, Phil Collins, The Police, and XTC. Beginning in March 1985, McCartney began recording Press To Play, having written several new songs, many with current collaborator, former 10cc member Eric Stewart. Guesting on the album would be Pete Townshend, Phil Collins, Eddie Rayner (Split Enz's keyboard maestro) and Stewart himself.

The album would not be finished until the end of the year, by which time only one song would see release from its sessions - the title track to the film "Spies Like Us", joined by Phil Ramone in the producer's chair. "Spies Like Us", a non-album single backed by Wings' 1975 recording "My Carnival", proved to be a U.S. Top 10 hit (and McCartney's last), setting the stage for Press To Play.

"Press", a slick up-tempo pop song, was released in July 1986 and surprisingly became only a Top 30 hit in the UK and United States. Press To Play itself appeared in September to the most positive reviews McCartney had received in years and stunned everyone by being his weakest-selling album of his solo career. Peaking at #8 in the UK, its chart life was brief, while in the U.S., Press to Play failed to even go gold, cresting at an underwhelming #30... That's why I say fuck the music industry!
Follow-up singles, "Pretty Little Head" and "Only Love Remains" performed poorly at retail.

In 1993, Press To Play was remastered and reissued on CD as part of "The Paul McCartney Collection" series with his 1985 hit "Spies Like Us" and an alternate mix of impending 1987 UK success "Once Upon A Long Ago" as bonus tracks.
