Have you ever heard a better version of this song?
Only this guy could do this … over the freakin' top —
leave it to Michael to bring out the double entendre in a song about human unity —
but, man, does he . . .
the beat . . .
the intensity . . .
and I betcha John would love this shit.
A full fuckin groove,
what he was goin’ for
the far out rhythmic play
the funk-rock n hard-beat
that builds and builds
and builds and builds s’more.
This is some sort of composite live performance – Michael’s contribution to the Lennon Liverpool tribute in 1990 — gawd knows how much is overdubbed, but the energy, arrangement and performance come through in groove-riding spades.
3 minutes in, it's crackin' like fireworks . . .
5 minutes in, I can’t believe I'm even thinking this, but . . .
this might be the best version of this song I’ve ever heard . . .
