@Ahhh Girl Was just going to mention Footprints ("He won't sit by my fire, he says he likes it in the snow.
Where footprints never go, he likes it in the snow") - one of my favorite obscure McCartney songs.

The word "obscure" may sometimes be somewhat over-used, but I do think this one's obscure - mainly because it comes off a relative weak album (Press To Play )

Sublime in the summertime, warm and lazy

from Your Love Is Forever

That counts, right?

It's a particularly appealing lyric to me today as it's been cold and rainy all day.

'Soft-Hearted Hana'

 

My legs seemed to me like high-rise buildings
My head was high up in the sky
My skin the sun began to fry like bacon...

She lives beneath the crater in the meadow
She moves among the fruit and grain
You can meet her after heavy rain has fallen

A quite stupendous song that is utterly and beyond bonkers and is totally explained by the words "magic mushrooms".

Off-topic question. Do any other Beatles mention bacon or is it just George ('Piggies ' and 'Soft-Hearted Hana')?

Feet in the Clouds (Paul solo)

Teacher said
I had my head in the clouds
They directed
I suspected
Disconnected
Had it my way

I've got my feet in the clouds
Got my head on the ground

Bowie's cover


is very faithful to the original -- especially by Bowie's standards, he usually kooks things up a bit (which is sometimes good, sometimes bad, but we Bowie-sluts would listen to him sing a Taco Bell menu so we don't care a-hard-days-night-john-6)
