The Beatles - I Am the Walrus
The Beatles, “I Am the Walrus”
OK, well, we all agree it’s a classic, and that The Beatles are the 20th Century Beethoven and all that, but even with all the hype, “I Am the Walrus” rocks the house down.
“Yellow matter custard dripping from a dead dog’s eye.”
I mean, who could make THAT into one of the biggest songs in rock and roll?
This is a great example of the sort of song I adore. The base moves, which is, there’s a groove to it, and over the top, lyrics that don’t pop us right back to where we already were. We’ve been someplace by the end.
Where, though, is a whole other question . . .
