I’m gonna write words oh so sweet. They’re gonna knock me off of my feet. A lot of kisses on the bottom, I’ll be glad I got ‘em’."
"Kisses On The Bottom" is a collection of standards MCCARTNEY grew up listening to in his childhood, as well as the two new compositions -- "My Valentine" and "Only Our Hearts." making appearances on the album are DIANA KRALL, ERIC CLAPTON and STEVIE WONDER.
