br /> Rolling Stone magazine asked readers to name their favourite composition by The Beatles' bass guitarist in recognition of his 67th birthday.

The 1968 hit single beat other popular Beatles songs to the top spot, with Penny Lane achieving second place and Eleanor Rigby in seventh.

However, many of Sir Paul's post-Beatles hits, including Jet and Band on the Run, made it to the list as well, along with his James Bond theme Live and Let Die.

Rolling Stones readers displayed a penchant for Beatles, Wings and solo album tracks too, with White album rocker Helter Skelter for instance making it to fourth place and Oh! Darling from Abbey Road being rated fifth.

Meanwhile, Maybe I'm Amazed, a song from Sir Paul's debut solo LP in 1970, made it to the heights of third place.

This is a notable record as McCartney plays every instrument on it, including piano, drum kit, electric guitar and bass guitar
