Band Name Origins:

  • There is an old movie called "The Shape of Things to Come" starring a very young Raymond Massey. It is a post apocalyptic cautionary tale of a world run by anarchists after the "final war". However, a group of scientists (ALA Ayn Rands "Atlas Shrugged" but before her novel) comes along with high tech tools and weapons to restore order. They have some interesting "flying wing" type planes (pictured on their self titled album cover "Wings") that they use to do this. And they call themselves "Wings Over the World". This is where they derived the name. If you doubt this go rent the movie and then look at the graphics on the album. Submitted by: yogi
  • Paul McCartney fought a lot of harsh criticism to have his wife (Linda) in the band, and given that the name "Wings" came to him while his daughter Stella was being born. Linda had hard difficulties while she was pregnant and Paul had visions of angel?s wings. (from TV-document "the story of Wings"). Submitted by: Imppa

Song Titles Not Used as Lyrics:

Comments & Submitter Name
"Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey""Uncle Albert" is clearly the title of the first part of the song, and while the second part does mention "Admiral Halsey," he is only mentioned once. The second part is better known for its "Hands across the water" chorus, which I originally thought was the title. - Raphael

Story about this misheard lyric by: Scotty Saigon

I was in elementary school from 1971-1977. During especially the early part of those I've known this guy with a kids-size cammy Army jacket, and it had a patch with a tank pictured on it. The caption said "Hell On Wheels". Funny thing, I don't recall any teachers complaining about that "H" word being worn, even if the Vietnam War was happening.

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Nineteen Hundred And Eighty-Five"
The Dated Lyrics:
Ah, no-one ever left alive
In nineteen hundred and eighty-five
Will ever do
She may be right, she may be fine
She may get love, but she won't get mine
'Cos I got you
Why They're Dated:
The song was released on the 1973 album 'Band On The Run'. At the time it seemed so far in the future as to be incomprehensible!

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"Little Lamb Dragonfly"
The Lyrics:
My heart is aching for you, Little Lamb, I can help you out...but I cannot help you in.
Why:
The Little Lamb is a meaning for someone who wants advice for love and he would love to help, but can't. And the Dragonfly is someone who used someone and is always bugging him still no matter what. It's a very good metaphoric song with a full orchestra backing Paul McCartney and his band Wings, but the song is actually melancholic.
