Temporary Secretary by Paul McCartney – ****

First released: 1980

The second UK single from "McCartney II". It's catchy and strange and definitely not the stuff that hits are made of. I like it, but then again I like "You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)". There were worse tracks from the "McCartney II" sessions, the b-side being one ("Secret Friend"). Later, McCartney created an all-new mix (called "Radio Slave Re-Edit") of this as a special limited edition promo record that later appear in an "Uncut" magazine compilation CD.

When McCartney played Prague in July, 2004, the Radio Slave edit was used to back a brief performance by a circus troupe before Paul took the stage with Jet. Not sure if he used it the same way other dates on that tour, though.
