It is amazing that this song winds up on lists of worst Christmas songs. It is just a fun/bouncy song in tradition of the holiday and never intended to brilliant piece of music -lol. You want to hear bad Christmas song, listen to Springsteen doing "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" and it is just awful, sounds like he is shouting instead of singing - ha ha.
Totally agree with entire post! 👍
(The moon must be in the 7th house and Jupiter aligned with Mars!) 😂
I was surprised to learn that, too. It's one of my favorite songs.
I think it's an absolutely fascinating song. It strikes me as a case of Paul both out-weirding and out-****ing Prince -- and showing just how connected some of these brilliant but eccentric geniuses all are.
That sort of looks like that portion of the card except those are inverted Es. The eye test itself got a little old with the interesting card followed by letters of the alphabet of diminishing size projected on the wall. I kept hoping that New would be played for me but the good old test ended without "New" music. Maybe a hearing tests would have included that?
If you find a doctor that will play "New" for us, please tell me where it is so I might go. I find that by the time the test is almost over, I have memorized the last few letters and have to tell them, as if I did not I would be cheating, and not get a accurate doctor's report. p.s.>Great one Podgie!
Nice find, thanks for sharing!! I always thought the slagging the LP took back then was because people were still made at Paul for the (perceived) image of him as having caused the Beatles breakup. I've never had anything other than a love bordering on obsession for that album. So it's nice to see there were still SOME objective critics back in 1971!
Back then, critics had it in for Paul for numerous reasons....the breakup of the Beatles and how he went about announcing it....to promote his new album, which wasn't much more than home recordings, Paul being considered a light weight, Paulie and the kiddies in tons of photos. Now, of course, photos of rock stars with their kids are considered great and touching, but not then. It wasn't cool. Jon Landau, may he live in infamy, totally trashed the album in his Rolling Stone review. And took great delight in doing so. I have to admit, I let it affect how I perceived the album. Much to my delight and surprise, when it was remastered and re-released a few years ago, I totally loved it. And the bonus tracks. Love all of it.
