Wonderful Christmastime was written and recorded by Paul McCartney for his 1980 solo album McCartney II. The song was released in late November of 1979, and it was McCartney’s first solo single in eight years since his 1971 single Eat at Home. The song charted in the top 40 on the Billboard Holiday 100, the Adult Top 40, the AC chart, and it peaked at number 28 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
It’s been covered many times over the years, but McCartney’s original version is still the best! Enjoy this look back at Paul McCartney’s music video for Wonderful Christmastime.
