INFORMATION FOR SONGS IN THE TOP 6000 PART I
  Welcome to the Top 6000 2014 edition commemorating 60 years of rock and roll.
We begin the Top 6000 at #6000 with the artist that makes more appearances in the Top 6000 than any other artist.He appears just 28 times not including his appearances with the Beatles.The Beatles are the recording act that have the most entries in the Top 6000,More than any other recording act.But I am talking about Sir Paul McCartney with a song that peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week ending February 3,1973 and peaked at #5 on the UK Official Chart the week of January 7,1973.
  In the UK, the song was banned by the BBC for its sexually suggestive lyrics. The BBC also assumed that the title phrase, "We're gonna get hi, hi, hi" was a drug reference. The specific lyrics objected to is the apparent phrase "get you ready for my body gun"; McCartney has said that the correct lyrics are "get you ready for my polygon", an abstract image, and later said, "The BBC got some of the words wrong. But I suppose it is a bit of a dirty song if sex is dirty and naughty.
  Also in 1980 Paul was arrested by Japanese customs agents for possession of marijuana and he spent 10 days in a Japanese jail. Anyway Sir Paul begins the Top 6000 countdown.
