Nowt to do with any intrinsic quality of the track or the album, just my emotional memory. If there were such a programme as Anti-Desert Island Discs, where you choose your most hated songs, songs that you'd have to be strapped into a chair to be forced to listen to, this whole album would be in my top five all-time hates.

I hope that's explained my 1 rating. Thanks for listening :)

 
Anti-Desert Island Discs...brilliant. Kenny Everett back in 1977 on his show played " The worst 20 songs ever recorded ". If I remember rightly William Shatner was there with Richard Harris but the winner's song was entitled " I'm going to dig my baby ' or something very much like it. You get the idea.
P.S. He even came out with the album but who the hell would want to buy it.

Watching the 2018 Winter Olympics last week, I saw a couple figure skating to this song. I though it was a very odd choice, and figured the choreographer had no idea of the lyrics. Or maybe it was  a statement on the stress of the competition!
I just had to laugh. Others turned away, but I just had to look.

You failed to run right to the end of the track -  the bit in the run-off grooves of the album. What was this repetitive bit at the end that we all agonised over at the time? Did we ever find out?

 
Maybe it's not on the CD? I am lucky to own an original vinyl copy {#Jump}

I always found it weird that after Paul lights up upstairs, he hears John wailing in his dream.

 A foreshadowing perhaps?

It's not really a '1', it's just that the fanbois adulation and immediate '10s' for anything related to the four mop tops sometimes gets to them, and a visceral, knee jerk reaction kicks in.  But that's music, it's EMOTIVE and not rational, so let's live with everyone's views, even when we really don't see where they are coming from, after all it is totally subjective, there is no right or wrong
