Flashback Friday: Magneto and Titanium Man
FLASHBACK FRIDAY on MEL'S INTERNET UNIVERSE MUSIC BLOG
We flash back to 1975 and the release of Paul McCartney and Wings follow-up album to 1973's "Band on the Run". This release is called "Venus and Mars" and features a number of memorable tracks including the title song medley and "Rock Show" plus the number 1 hit "Listen to What the Man Said". However one of my favorite tracks on the album is "Magneto and Titanium Man", a song that surely I thought, would be a follow-up single to "Listen". The track was never issued as a lead single but instead showed up as a B-side to I think "Letting Go" which was not a very big hit for Wings.
Nevertheless "Magneto and Titanium Man" remains one of my favorites. The included video with this post was issued a few years ago and is independently made consisting of clips from various Marvel Comics animated programs. Take a look and give the song a listen!
