This is such a good song, and really all it is Bowie and Queen went into a studio, snorted a bunch of coke and literally just shit this track out off the cuff. True musical greatness. :school

Getting deeper into the McCartney back catalog. Now realizing that "RAM" is probably the best post-Beatles solo album. All Things Must Pass is wonderful and everything but it is ponderous and bloated, both content and production. Imagine is spotty and short on memorable tunes. Plastic Ono is better than Imagine but again, inconsistent effort. It was Paul above all who carried on the musical spirit of the Beatles. :school

been listening to

Smiths, Pixies, entire catalog
The Libertines, album from 2015
Paul McCartney Ram

The Beatles just put out a new remixed repackaged White Album and outtakes package. I am listening to the entire thing via my music subscription service. Some of the outtakes are supremely interesting. A lot of it is repetitive, and I am now tired of a lot of the original music. Songs like Birthday and Bungalow Bill more or less suck. Dirges like Helter Skelter or Guitar Gently Weeps are massively overrated. Then you have crap like Honey Pie which technically is a well crafted, catchy song, but at the end of the day, just sucks. On a so-called Beatles album at least. I guess I only really need like 5-6 songs from this album. But as a Beatles devotee I do enjoy the outtakes, the alternate version and the improv jams and what not. At one point George is caught on mic ordering a "lettuce, cheese, marmite sandwich and a coffee" for lunch--probably what passed for vegetarian fare in 1968.
