In addition to famously sparking John Lennon’s dormant creative flame, “Coming Up” has proven itself to be one of the most versatile songs in Paul McCartney’s catalog.

Here’s the original, from 1980’s McCartney II. Crisp and clean and plenty of caffeine.

Now the single, which was performed by Wings in Glasgow, 1979.

And here’s the great, funkified version Macca did at Knebworth, in 1990.

Finally, here’s the Twin Freaks’ remix, which I was obsessed with for a solid month back in 2012. Must’ve been something about the Mayan Calendar.

    I LOVE the “Twin Freaks” remix of this song, and the remix of “Maybe I’m Amazed” on the same album. Love the whole thing, in fact, and wish Roy Kerr (aka DJ Freelance Hellraiser) would do another remix album of McCartney songs.
