for the most part, lld, you're right...this is only a minor matter of enthusiasm...mayhap you missed my (near usual) weak attempt at bombastic humor
but...to be clear, while you were 'excited' to hear of him tackling this piece, you ended up thinking it was only 'quite good'...but glad, in the end that it would be left off the final cut...
i was intrigued by the idea that he might attempt one or more of his old songs, including this one...expressing, on another page that, if done right, it would tell me everything i need to know about where his head and his heart were while making this album: hearing this song/remake, along with everything else...it is clear to me that he was 100% on target
at this point, i consider this 'remake' to be so good, i'm left kind of sad that anyone who buys the regular disc will miss out on this...that's a bit more than a slight difference in enthusiasm.
if we get lucky enough to have new fans become intrigued, or better yet, fall in love with mccartney music because of this new album...and if they then found out that this over 30 year old song (had it been included on the regular version ) originated from a previous album...think of the artistic interest it would bring to his previous works...
everybody bogey...dig that bogey beat...man, that bogey rhythm...smells so clean 'n sweet
everybody bogey...bogey onto the streets...without bogey music...life is incomplete
