Silly Love Songs" is a song written by Paul McCartney and Linda McCartney and performed by Wings. The song appears on the 1976 album Wings at the Speed of Sound. It was also released as a single in 1976, backed with "Cook of the House". The song, written in response to John Lennon and music critics accusing McCartney of predominantly writing "silly love songs" and "sentimental slush", also features disco overtones.
Silly Love Songs was written as a rebuttal to music critics, as well as former Beatle and friend, John Lennon, accusing Paul McCartney of writing lightweight love songs. But over the years people have said, Aw, he sings love songs, he writes love songs, he’s so soppy at times. I thought, Well, I know what they mean, but, people have been doing love songs forever.
