** As well as the inexplicable rise of "Temporary Secretary" to memehood. Maybe we have WebVideo/Mega64 to thank for that.

* VindicatedByHistory: ''Music/McCartney'' and ''Music/{{Ram}}'' were largely panned when first released (even [[Music/RingoStarr Ringo]] hated ''Ram''). These days they are considered among Paul's finest post-Beatles records.

* LoveItOrHateIt: Depending on who you ask, "Wonderful Christmastime" is either a fun singalong that captures the warmth of the holiday season, or the leading cause behind December suicides.

* EpilepticTrees: There’s a common conspiracy theory saying he actually died in the ‘60s, an event alluded to in some of Music/TheBeatles’ works and album covers, and a doppelgänger took his place. This makes very little sense when you consider that the doppelgänger needs to do a perfect Liverpool accent and play the guitar like he did. And he was left-handed.

* TheStoryteller: His lyrics (especially compared to other Beatles') are notable for often telling stories rather than pondering about abstract subjects. He's also a master storyteller during interviews. His age and career certainly help.

* AmericansHateTingle: "Mull of Kintyre" was one of [=McCartney=]'s biggest solo hits, a smash all over the world, except for the U.S.A., where it was ignored. His US label, figuring that your average American would have no idea what the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mull_of_Kintyre Mull of Kintyre]] was and thus wouldn't care about the song, promoted the single's B-side ("Girls' School") instead.

** His 1982 duet with Music/MichaelJackson, "The Girl is Mine". Particularly [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHp0s2wKajw&t=2m39s when he enters bass territory]].

* TheScrappy: Paul seemed to be this among the four Beatles critically, [[CriticalDissonance yet his albums kept selling]]. Partly a case of ItsPopularNowItSucks. Also a case of TrueArtIsAngsty, as Paul was unapologetically writing SillyLoveSongs while Music/JohnLennon and Music/GeorgeHarrison were dealing with (allegedly) weightier subjects. As time goes by, this trope is wearing off and not only is [=McCartney=]'s contribution being revalued upwards -- he was the most cosmopolitan Beatle, and the one who first investigated avant-garde art and music -- his solo work is being revalued too.
