10 Things You Didn’t Know About Linda McCartney

Paul wasn’t the only one to write a song about Linda

Paul McCartney wrote many songs with Linda in mind — from hits like ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ and ‘My Love’ to album cuts ‘We Got Married’ and ‘Golden Earth Girl.’ But he wasn’t the only one, or even the first. Jack Lawrence (a client of her entertainment-lawyer father) composed ‘Linda’ for the future Mrs. McCartney in 1947, when she was just six years old. It was a hit for Buddy Clark, and was later recorded by Jan and Dean and Perry Como.
