All four Beatles are on it, but I have a hard time considering it a Beatles song. But it *does* have the advantage of it not being turned into an ELO song like free as a bird and real love were, so it has a fighting chance.
I love Real Love and moderately enjoy Free as a Bird. So I'm quite excited about this one, not as much for the quality of it (probably nice but not brilliant) but just for the fact we're getting the last Beatles song. I mean, they changed my life, it's mindblowing.
For being what it is, a partially-written, embellished cassette demo, it's okay. Sounds like something from Mind Games. It's nowhere near as good as Free as a Bird though. It does not sound like The Beatles at all.
I would like to hear a non-strings version tbh. I really like Lennon's voice -- not overly sold when Macca starts singing though.
I actually like how they treated macca’s vocals. You aren’t getting a Beatles song without the John/Paul harmonies, but they acknowledge Paul’s age and almost put them in the background so much, you barely notice them.
