Paul McCartney quickly wrote the adorable Christmas song “Wonderful Christmas” during a sweltering July day

Paul McCartney knows how to write a simple and catchy song, even a Christmas song. There aren’t many of his “Wonderful Christmastime” hits, except for some easy, effective lyrics and the beat of ’80s music to keep it together. No wonder Paul only took two minutes to write.

Paul McCartney wrote his “Wonderful Christmastime” in 10 minutes during July

Surprisingly, Paul wrote “Wonderful Christmastime” late in his career. Well, later than many fans expected. In 1980, during the recording sessions for McCartney II, Paul Melody wrote. However, the song became Paul’s first single since 1971. He released it in November 1979, just in time for the holiday season.
