Must Do Something About It is finely sung by Joe English, Wings' drummer, though I would love to hear Paul himself sing this gem of a song.
Who cares about a song sung by Joe English?

I've seen other people picking on those lyrics too, but for me, not THAT good in English, I think they're quite alright. Not exactly "Eleanor Rigby", but, if nobody else had picked on them, I wouldn't have noticed.

Back in the 70's, when British rock royalty Sir Paul McCartney needed a drummer to finish recording a Wings album, it was Joe English who came to the rescue.
By the time his tenure with the famed ex Beatle was through, Joe had played on five gold and platinum Wings albums and toured the world.
According to Joe, he first picked up a pair of drum sticks when he was 13 years old. Like so many other kids across America, he had seen the four lads from Liverpool on TV, and was instantly bitten by the music bug. "I want to be like that one day," he said to himself. His parents bought him a drum set and it wasn't long before he was performing in nightclubs and in concerts.
Then one day Joe got a call from his friend Tony Dorcy.
Joe was summoned to New Orleans on a Tuesday and by Wednesday he was recording with Paul McCartney and Wings.
Just like that, 26 year old Joe English was in one of the most popular bands of all time, being idolized by millions of fans world wide and possessing all the material wealth he could ask for. Joe was living a dream come true, but at the same time, he was challenged by personal demons. Feeling homesick, he left Wings to return to Georgia where he joined the band, Sea Level, made up of ex members of the Allman Brothers Band. Next, he formed the Joe English Band and began making Christian rock albums for very eager fans. By Joe's own admission, he was a wolf in sheeps clothing, just pretending to be one of the faithful. His struggle with inner conflicts persisted until one desperate night when he knew he had to decide who he was going to serve, the devil or God. He chose God and as he testifies, a miracle occurred and he was born again. Joe is no longer involved in the music industry, but he continues to sing in the World of Faith Fellowship choir in Spindalem, North Carolina.
