The chorus is great, "Leave me alone...."
Love that melody!

Musically speaking, MRS VANDEBILT has some of my favorite Paul lead guitar work. It's a short riff that follows the 'leave me alone' melody, but it's quite beatifully played. (It's Paul on lead guitar, right? Well, even if it's Denny, I love it!)

It sounds more like Paul's style than Denny's. I had kinda figured that macca did most of the lead work and Denny did his usual stellar rythym work. But with extra chore of drumming, one can't be sure. Sure sounds like Macca on this one....

My older brothers were Beatle-fanatics like me, but they quit listening to them cold after their first few solo releases.

After hearing MV the first time, I can remember thinking, "I know they'll never buy into this one," and they didn't. Too fluff, too silly. I myself cringed a bit, it slightly embarrassed me, but it is good musically, and it does have a great bassline.

To me it falls into the same category as Average Person or the Hold Me Tight Medley. Not a favorite, but there are things about it I like.

When I hear it now, though, it reminds me of hitching a ride through Texas to New Mexico in the early 80s. This dude picked me and my friend up, and MV was cranking on his FM radio. It's a fun memory. And also in retrospect, I see Paul as an artist with unflagging confidence in his own muse, and I can respect that.
