I think most "guys" like Blackbird because it isn't a sappy McCartney love song in a slower tempo. It's got a great melody which is infectious and has you humming it all day long.

I Will is a great song too, but its more slanted towards the ladies...like yourself.

I'd also say Rocky Raccoon is underrated. It's not obscure, but I think it's one of Paul's 5 best songs. It might seem like a stupid story, but the "when Gideon checked out/he left it no doubt/to help with good Rocky's revival" is just great writing. Very witty, and a musical style that wasn't too common in late 60's rock.

Another underrated Paul song, and another of his best, is Why Don't We Do It In The Road?, which is great because it's so un-Paul. It sounds like something John would have done, and it's a nice break from the normal cheese that we get from McCartney--garbage like Honey Pie.

Reminds me of Oh Darling! Even though it's a McCartney love song, I just love those vocals!

The harmonies in that are amazing, great call.
