Clunkiness and all, I've always liked it too – especially teh way John's lead kinda swings back and forth between overblown seriousness and overblown parody until you're not sure which is which

Count me in as liking it.
I had to laugh at Von's response because I always sing along with an overblown parody of John's overblown seriousness.
It really is a fun song to sing. Oncoming traffic must get a laugh out of me when they see me playing air Hammond on the dashboard of my car.

I'll be different here and say that I don't like it. To be honest it is probably my least favorite Beatle song out there. (I've grown more tolerant of Revolution 9 lately, so it's not at the bottom any more.) I do think the beginning is pretty decent, but after that it quickly goes down hill. For me what I don't like is that the actual playing of the instruments, seems very lackluster, like they're hardly trying at all. And the vocals aren't John's best either or the harmonies. (Which there are very few of. It kind of seems like a song that would have more harmonies in it.) And at the beginning it seems like it will turn into a much different song. From John's belting out of Mr. Moonlight it sounds like it's be a bit more of a rocker, but it's not. So for me I can find a lot of reasons I don't find it a good song. But to each their own.
When I went to see George Martin do a talk in London a year or so ago (check the history section – it was for a deafness charity), he took questions from the audience. I asked if there were any Beatles songs where he wished he'd done something different. His response was essentially "perish the thought", but I was really wondering if Leave My Kitten Alone would have been a better choice on BFS than Mr Moonlight. I definitely think it would have been.

I think the beginning really shows how well John can sing. It's a big stretch, and it may have hurt like hell afterword, but I think it was worth it. The song is better than the original in it's own way (well, most likely if it's more popular. I haven't heard the original). I like the song. I don't really like the fact that the album is mostly covers, but I still like the way they performed them.

I think you can tell that I like it. If you're not a fan of the clunkiness, have a listen to the Star-Club version.
