The majority of the album—which is sequenced in the
order of the songs' appearance in the film—features
re-interpretations of many of his past classics of The Beatles and
Wings: "Good Day Sunshine", "Yesterday", "Here, There and
Everywhere", "Silly Love Songs" (the only Wings song included),
"For No One", "Eleanor Rigby" and "The Long and Winding Road". There were also interpretations of songs from McCartney's more
recent albums; "Ballroom Dancing" and "Wanderlust" from Tug of War
and "So Bad" from Pipes of Peace. Besides "No More Lonely Nights"
(also heard in a dance version), the only previously-unheard
tracks were "Not Such a Bad Boy", "No Values" and a symphonic
extension of "Eleanor Rigby" entitled "Eleanor's Dream". The scope
of the album was so immense that when it saw release that October,
its vinyl issue had specially edited versions of its songs. The
cassette and the later CD edition preserved the tracks' full
lengths, while the CD went one further by including a bonus
1940's-styled piece called "Goodnight Princess".
Due to the length of the recording, the 1984 LP omits "So Bad" and
"Goodnight Princess", edits out about six minutes of "Eleanor's
Dream", and also sections of "Good Day Sunshine", "Wanderlust" and
"No More Lonely Nights (playout version)".
