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.
