We discuss our feelings about the new "last" Beatles song - "Now and Then." Based off a demo John Lennon left on a cassette tape, Paul McCartney led the creation of this new single. We've got drums and vocals from Ringo, a little bit of acoustic guitar from George, and a George-inspired lead part from Paul, as well as contributions (over time) from producer Jeff Lynne, Giles Martin, the audio team with Peter Jackson and lots more.
We try to separate sentiment from sonic quality and get into the details of the song itself. But then we dive right headfirst into the sentiment, because it's impossible to separate it out.
We hear George chords, Chaos and Creation vibes, Anthology production and lots more in this.
We also try to start an extremely unsubstantiated rumor that John wrote "For Paul" on the cassette and was thinking of Paul Stanley of KISS. Let's get that one going around.
