I’ve been really, really digging this song in the last few days, so I played it to my dad and he said ‘it sounds like John Lennon is doing quite a good impersonation of Led Zeppelin.’

I quite agree with that statement, actually!

“You know it’s such a drag to face another day.” My favourite line from the song, which believe it or not I also listened to quite recently. I don’t think it’s a classic Lennon song or anything but I do enjoy the energy it has. Really fun.

Underrated sonng from Walls And Bridges . My ex girlfriend from highschool made fun of the lyrical content a few years ago for being cheesy and obvious, but the vocal delivery is one fore the ages and I didn’t let it get to me.

I love the way it opens “don’t want to be a draaaag!” Seriously one of my favorite John vocal performances

I’d never heard this one before, I’m definitely a fan. The Zeppelin comparison is a good one, but I’d liken this more closely to Stevie Wonder.

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.

I do hear a bit of Stevie, not so much Zeppelin. (But “Trampled Underfoot” was a bit “Supertition”-ish,  so the comparison makes sense.)

John was big on those r&b records of the day! (As was Bowie, of course)

the groove on this is killer, as is John’s vocal performance

has to be one of the most funk/soul influenced solo songs (the biggest competition I can think of off the top of my head rn is Arrow Through Me)

Walls And Bridges has really grown on me lately

In an ideal world this vocal would get as much attention as his Twist And Shout performance.

Does this (see screenshot) mean John didn’t record it/engineer it this way originally?  How much of this is “Trish”?  Where can I hear John’s original?

Well I’ll be damned! John’s original is good in its own right, but the way Trish has transformed it in the link I gave turns it into a different song that in my estimation is much, much better. I wonder if Trish used or mined the original for all the sounds that she uses to reconstruct the song — or did she add stuff that’s not in the song? If only I could find Trish… Oh well I’m glad I found her remix.

PS somebody above said the original sounds like Led Zeppelin. Maybe in some parallel universe, but not in this one. I’m trying to think who could do a good cover of it… Maybe Rare Earth in their prime.

Now today I find, you have changed your mind
