Musical coincidences # 198

Here’s another coincidence from my friend Pete (Hidee howdy hodee, Pete!). I’m extremely glad that Pete spotted this one, as it involves two songs I absolutely adore – and it’s a heap o’ fun.

Righty-o. To the fun!

Paul and Linda McCartney – “Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey (1971) (excerpt)

George Baker Selection – “Paloma Blanca (1975) (excerpt)

Pete reckons that “Every time I listen to one of them, it reminds me of the other.”

I’m not surprised.

Here are the full versions:
