Still an amazing song, and not one I choose to listen to very often, it's very raw and powerful.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

I actually prefer the version from 'One Hand Clapping' that was on the second disc of the 'McCartney' Archive remaster.

"I told you everything I could about me, Told you everything I could" ('Before Believing' - Emmylou Harris) 

"Don't make your love suffer insecurities; Trade the baggage of 'self' to set another one free" ('Paper Skin' - Kendall Payne)

Yeah, those OHC bonus tracks are fantastic. I had never heard them until I got the remastered disc and was quite pleased with them.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

This really is one of Paul's very best songsa-hard-days-night-paul-8, but I hate the way it ends.ahdn_paul_01  The verse sounds very climactic, so you think it would end with that, but no.  It just sorta ends with a weak fadeout-y thing and goes into the abysmal Kreen-Akrore.  If you can't tell, I'm not a big fan of the McCartney album.  Good song though!

I love this song, it's probably my favorite Paul solo song, although i do wish that the other Beatles were on it, i'd like it if Ringo played drums and George played the guitar in the background during the solo, as well as some 3 part harmonies from our favorite 3 part harmonizers John, Paul, and George.

Great idea, I can hear those Paul/John/George harmonies now for that song -- and another thing the song lacks, in my opinion, is some input into the lyrics from John: he could always be counted on to inject his acerbic, jaded, world-weary spark of wisdom.  Paul tells the story of how when he was writing Getting Better , with the refrain "It's getting better all the time" -- it was John who came up with the devilishly witty rejoinder "It couldn't get no worse!" -- which Paul probably would never think of.
