"Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five (Cutting out the sort of reprise of BOTR at the end)"

One of my favorites too. But why cut out the BOTR reprise at the end? That has to be the most clever ending I've ever seen. You're done with the B side of the single (or side 2 of the album) - and it takes you right back to the A side (or the first song of the Album).

It works really well on the original album, but I don't know how well it would work on a compilation, since I put Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five right in the middle of the first disc. 

If you're lonely (or not!), you can talk to me. .....Hey! Are you a new member on this fine forum and don't know where to go to introduce yourself?
Well, you can do it here! Dig it?

I would have swore blind that 'Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five' was on Wingspan, really surprised that its not.

Strike that. Reverse.

Someone please make post in this thread. A good McCartney song in the post would be a bonus.

Not only is it clever, it makes superb musical sense from that final riff based on Cminor, into a triumphant Cmajor (the key of BOTR).
