Under The Radar: Paul McCartney: So Bad (1984)
Updated: Sep 28, 2020
So Bad is a track from the 1983 album Pipes Of Peace. The track peaked at #23 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1984.
At first listen the track seems like a straightforward love song. However, So bad stands out for its soulful vibe and incredible falsetto performance from McCartney.
Even though the track was a hit on the charts it has not been included on any of McCartney’ s Greatest Hits compilations or retrospectives. Which is too bad the track showcases another underrated talent in the McCartney arsenal - the flexibility of his voice.
So Bad is a hidden gem and deserves a lot more appreciation.
