Wow @ Paul giving Linda what seems like a Harrisong arrangement, with all those gently strummed (and slid) guitars! Linda's vocal is admirable, unaffected and plainly pretty, like the lady herself, and the tune is nice.   

Agreed! I'm very fond of it. I have to say it also gave me slight Richard Wright vibes, like something from his (very mellow) 1978 solo album Wet Dream. It's like the perfect blend of Wings and Floyd heart

Hmmm, keep that where it is.

 

This is Gza from the Wu Tang Clan. I love the way he gets so many famous people's names into the song. It's called Fame:

Lyrics are very clever, all those puns. (I'd  have to consult a lyric sheet to see how many celebs namechecks I missed...) GZAs voice and delivery are strong too, so it's unfortunate that the beats and music overall just lie there, neither swinging nor funky nor slamming enough to make me really sit up and listen. I'll turn it up 1/2 for its lyrics.

Didn't care for that at all, I'm afraid; too slow, and no hooks. Turn it down.

Something kinda "Dear Prudence "-ish about this track:
