Anybody else notice any similarities between God from Plastic Ono Band and Five Years from Ziggy Stardust? I was listening to the latter today and noticed how the slamming piano chords and rhythm of the verses are very similar, and also the way Bowie goes into that list of contradictions “And all the fat skinny people” which resembles the “I don’t believe in…” section of God

The following people thank QuarryMan for this post:

I've been up on the mountain, and I've seen his wondrous grace,
I've sat there on the barstool and I've looked him in the face.
He seemed a little haggard, but it did not slow him down,
he was humming to the neon of the universal sound.

Definitely sourced for inspiration and interpreted thus.

Unless Paul McCartney knocks on my door I am unlikely to be impressed.
