Quote from: SteveDave on January 27, 2022, 09:22:51 AMAs much as I love I Am The EggPod these "Get Back" ones have been itching my tits. Some of the guests have been great and insightful but a few have just been inane local radio DJ levels of shit. Of course I'm listening to them all but the man and woman couple on a few days ago made me wish death upon the Western world.
Quote from: Replies From View on January 20, 2022, 11:17:12 PMTheir take (Neil Innes' take, really) on Free As A Bird might be my very favourite:There's echoes of McCartney's Flaming Pie album in there too, in the 'looking back... with 20/20 hindsight' parts (the bits that would correspond to where Paul would have added lyrics/ middle eight to the original John song). Very clever, that Innes.
Quote from: SpiderChrist on January 27, 2022, 11:29:20 AMI was just thinking the same - there was one guy who knew fuck all (didn't know who Magic Alex was, called Let It Be "the worst Beatles album") then the woman from Talking Pictures TV (?) who seemed to think that laughing at the end of a sentence made what she had just said funny (and had similar shallow levels of knowledge) and then the fucking pompous know-all that is Nicky Campbell. Fucking hell.And why doesn't Chris Shaw ever disagree with a guest? Whatever shit they come out with, he responds with a breathy "Yes!".I stopped listening after the Nicky Campbell one. Not going back. Something About The Beatles and Nothing Is Real are much more entertaining and informative listens I reckon.
Quote from: shagatha crustie on January 27, 2022, 12:14:55 PMAw, I really like Chris's positivity and openness to the guest. During the lockdowns this was what made Eggpod one of the best and such a therapeutic listen - just people really splashing around in their love for the music and history.You're right though that the downside of that is you sometimes get people who don't know what they're on about or want to show off. I've found this Get Back analysis isn't really working for me - generally, the pod is better when somebody picks a post-Beatles album, because they're less frequently discussed, and it shows they know their stuff or have more to say about the Beatle in question (e.g. Samira Ahmed on the Harrison self-titled from '79, John Higgs on the Fireman's Rushes, Andy Miller on Tug of War, or Diana Erickson - an enormous Paul "stan" - on Walls and Bridges). I don't really need to hear anyone walking through Revolver track by track telling me why they're good songs, unless it's a particularly charismatic or idiosyncratic guest.
Quote from: Replies From View on January 27, 2022, 11:58:19 AMIt's a beautiful and poignant song, I think. No harm having such a thing amongst all the funny ones.It seems I was wrong about the reference of Beautiful Day within Don't Know Why, though. Archaeology was released in 1996, and Flaming Pie 1997. But maybe those few notes evoke McCartney's vibe more broadly, rather than a specific song - it feels like it to me.

Quote from: SteveDave on February 01, 2022, 11:34:39 AMMy friend is currently listening to the Beatles in real time 60 years removed. So for him, the only Beatles songs he can listen to are "My Bonnie" and "When The Saints Go Marching In". In October he gets "Love Me Do" and "PS I Love You". He's not coming to see the rooftop show at the IMAX next week because of this.
