Paul McCartney is one of the most talented songwriters of all time and is praised for his musical genius. After the breakup of the Beatles, each member pursued a solo music career. Paul McCartney is the only Beatle that had an incredibly successful career after the end of Beatlemania.

In 1971 McCartney created a new band called Paul McCartney and Wings. This included his first wife and other friends of his. This band lasted ten years, similarly to the Beatles.

Paul McCartney made “Wonderful Christmastime” in 1979 but on a solo album called McCartney II. He mixes techno music with his un-autotuned voice showing how skilled he is with vocals and tempo. Masterfully, McCartney speeds up and slows down specific sections to add interest to the song. This brilliantly keeps the listener engaged and swept away into the music.
