Ballroom Dancing by Paul McCartney – ****

First released: 1982

There are at least three different versions of this song. One was the demo version that Wings was working on when Paul decided to call it a day on Wings in 1981, two was the standard release on the "Tug of War" album, and three was the rerecording from the "Give My Regards to Broad Street" soundtrack from 1984. The "Tug of War" version is hands down the best one of the three and should have been released as a single over "Tug of War". The nice bouncy keyboards remind me of a good Elton John tune. It should have been the third single from "Tug of War".
