The Paul McCartney-led British-American band Wings’ ‘Let ‘Em In‘ was one of the songs played on the new episode of the HBO mini series We Are Who We Are last night — We Are Who We Are, Season 1, Episode 7 — (aired on October 26th, 2020).
The song was heard at the soldiers memorial as a very drunk Richard (Scott Mescudi) asks for music to be played.
Wings’ ‘Let ‘Em In‘ is from the band’s fifth studio album Wings at the Speed of Sound, which was released in 1976 via the Capitol record label.
The album made it to #1 on the United States album chart and at #2 in the UK.
It went on to hit the top spot in both Canada and France, to chart in a total of 12 countries, and to spend seven weeks at the top of the U.S. charts.
The album was panned by critics, however, who mainly found it bland and uninteresting.
Wings’ ‘Let ‘Em In‘ was one of two successful singles from the album (the other was ‘Silly Love Songs‘). The track was both written and sung by McCartney, and was eventually certified Gold after hitting charts in eight countries, including #1 in the U.S. and Canada.
