brilliance...beyond absolution !!
most peeps don't 'get' macca...they expect him to be, forever, 'the beatle'...but they forget...
the beatles were
, often, at the edge...maybe they didn't create it...maybe they just exploited it...but they definatively used
it with glee !!
all the songs you mentioned ...and so many, many more...flow with a musical glee and certain form of manic inspiration !!
..and we could go on with that list, right ?
momma miss america...kreen akrore...uncle albert...smile away...wild life...loup...that RRS medley...helen wheels...1985...mamunia...venus and mars ARE
alright tonight !!
he wrote cook of the house..and, at near the same time, warm and beautiful !!
he gave us girls school...all while giving us the elvisy name and address..while giving us the top 40 with a little luck...
he rocked out with spin it on...got offbeat with old siam and pastiched it with arrow through me...and brought together a rockestra all in one freakin' set of songs !!
...he gave us all the kaliadascopal splendiferousness of McCartney 2...and THAT is just the first half of his solo career: much has been made/discussed of late as to whether he's gotten even better at all this
the man, often fearlessly, dips and swoons into wherever his
muse takes him...
and those of us brave enough go along for that
ride often find a carnival of lights with nearly each journey...!!
the rest ??
they just sit there and wonder what he was smoking
at the end of the end it's the start of a journey to a much better place and this wasn't bad so a much better place would have to be special...no need to be sad...
