A jokey song…

Another great singalong from the White Album . Just like The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill , the hero is intent on shooting someone/some creature, and is equally inept. TWO bass guitars, that's why the riff sounds so great, played in tandem, especially the mono version which is well separated. I love the tinkly piano "solos", for there is no solo, sorry George. Also the expertly mixed backing vocals on the last verse, slotted in there. If anything palls its that Paul might have been encouraged to go doo doo doo on one too many songs.

Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe. This has been true for 2016 & 2017 but I may have to get more specific in the future.

Rocky Raccoon is a song that has become more popular over time. Its a great song, and I see a lot of young people isolating it from The Beatles and adding it to their playlists, with little playtime given to any other Beatles songs.
If all of my prior Beatles knowledge was removed, I am fairly certain that Rocky Raccoon would be one of the first songs I would discover.

Rocky Raccoon has a really nice melody and acoustic guitar playing, but the lyrics are just irritating. I can tolerate some of their quirkier lyrics but often they ruin otherwise great songs.

She called herself Lil...
I wonder if Paul was giving a nod to Lily Evan's (Mal's wife) who was called Lil.
