Spies Like Us (Paul McCartney)
#7 on the US Hot 100
A song from the Chevy Chase-Dan Aykroyd movie of the same name there will be a very good reason you might not have heard this song in years – it’s not McCartney’s best work. But it’s an infectious little earworm – once you’ve heard it again it’ll be stuck in your head for days.
Fun fact: Notice how it’s implied Chase is playing guitar in the video but he’s not actually shown doing so? UK Labour rules only allowed those who actually played on the record to appear playing instruments in the video.
