I really hate that song.
KLOS, the LA rock station has been doing that for decades as well.

Is that 95.5? I remember cerca 99-01 it was, for a classic rock station, really good.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Deep down, Hoy is very shallow.

My favourite Rutles bit is "named, of course, for the famous Cuban revolutionary, Che Stadium". LOL

Whenever I see Yoko, I think of her Rutles counterpart in a Gestapo uniform, "whose father invented World War II." Also Dirk/McCartney describing his career ambitions as writing songs and selling them for a lot of money.

Most of the Beatles' sitar stuff is awful. Other than Norwegian Wood, they're usually automatic skips for me.
"The Inner Light" is good too.

My Mum decided a while ago, after the last 39 years of having the Beatles being pumped in her ears, that she really hates Paul McCartney's voice and it ruined 50% of their songs for her. I thought about it for a while and I've just hit the same point, where I deeply dislike something indefinable about his timbre. Great songwriter, but he may as well be doing his husky yodeling thing constantly for the emotional connection I can make to McCartney songs now.

I know what you mean. I was never much a fan of his voice either, even some of his songs in general I never liked.
