* 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.

* VocalEvolution: Paul's singing voice has gotten raspier, lower and deeper over the years, particularly after the mid-[[TheEighties 1980s]].

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Arguably, "Here Today". May also overlap with TearJerker.
** "Maybe I'm Amazed", which he wrote for Linda.
** Live, Paul has performed "Something" in tribute to GeorgeHarrison and "Give Peace a Chance" at the end of "A Day in the Life" in honor of JohnLennon.

* 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.
