Give Ireland Back to the Irish" is a song by the British–American rock band Wings that was released as their debut single in February 1972. It was written by Paul McCartney and his wife Linda in response to the events of Bloody Sunday, on 30 January that year, when British troops in Northern Ireland shot dead thirteen civil rights protestors. Keen to voice their outrage at the killings, Wings recorded the track two days later at Abbey Road Studios in London.
Wings, formed in 1971 by McCartney and Linda, also included guitarist Denny Laine, drummer Denny Seiwell and Northern Irish guitarist Henry McCullough. They all agreed the song was worth recording and releasing – and they were ready for the backlash, which began almost immediately. In his 2002 memoir Wingspan McCartney recalled: I wrote ‘Give Ireland Back to the Irish,’ we recorded it and I was promptly phoned by the chairman of EMI, explaining that they wouldn’t release it. He thought it was too inflammatory.

Spin It On" Back to the Egg (Wings, 1979) Although Back to the Egg cracked Billboard's Top 10 in 1979, it took a minor beating from critics, something McCartney still mentions in interviews. No Values" Give My Regards to Broad Street (Paul McCartney, 1984) I've always been a fan of this harmless little rocker from McCartney's 1984 feature film, Give My Regards to Broad Street, and the video (which has been connected to the song since day one), is a big part of the reason. First of all, the clip (and the track) reunites Paul and Ringo Starr, so it's one of those "half a Beatles song" situations that serious fans get a kick out of.
