The BEST line-up of Wings, performing "Jet" in 1976
"Jet" is a song from Paul McCartney and Wings' Band on the Run album. The song peaked at #7 in both the UK and US charts on 30 March 1974. Along with "Helen Wheels" and "Junior's Farm", it is another McCartney song where his primary inspiration for composing the song arose in daily life. It was recorded mainly at EMI's studio in Lagos, Nigeria.
When first released, the single's B-side was "Mamunia", another track from Band on the Run. However, it was soon replaced with "Let Me Roll It".
Reviewers have reported that the song is about McCartney's Labrador Retriever named "Jet".
The Australian rock band Jet gets their name from this song.
