„Silly Love Songs” is a song written and sung by Paul McCartney with his band Wings in 1976. McCartney had been often teased by John Lennon, a fellow member of The Beatles and music critics for writing lightweight, „silly love songs”, and McCartney wrote this number in response. In addition, „Silly Love Songs” was McCartney’s first foray into the then-popular disco sound, with his bass guitar taking a lead role against a steady disco-style drumbeat. As such it was the forerunner for other 1960s-era British musicians trying their hand at disco; examples that followed included The Rolling Stones’ „Miss You” and Rod Stewart’s „Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?”.
The song was included on the album Wings at the Speed of Sound as well as being released as a single, where it reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and number two on the UK singles chart. It became not only one of the Wings’ best-selling singles, but one of the best-selling singles of the 1970s.
