Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: Mull of Kintyre

Time once again for our usual midday Wednesday feature.

Mull of Kintyre (in Gaelic, Maol Chinn Tìre, or "The rounded [or bare] headland of Kintyre") is located at the tip of the Kintyre Peninsula in southwestern Scotland. The song was written and recorded by Paul McCartney and Danny Laine in 1977, while performing with the group Wings. It became a number one hit just before Christmas of that year in the UK, where it was the first single to sell over two million copies.
