Come Together seems like a bunch of bland to mildly irritating ideas pasted together.

Ah, so that's why my 70's and 80's smart playlists are pains in the arse. That's a lot of retagging. Oh, well. New project!

Oh great, an opportunity for me to look like an over-serious bastard who can't have fun. Thanks, Maxwell's Silver Hammer!

This is so-oh-oh-oh silly. The kind of thing you may release as a b-side in a moment of whimsy, and that's it.

Once In A Lifetime followed She Blinded Me With Science, and then came Cars.

They all went well together, although I personally would have put Cars right after Science. Those two were made to go together.

Currently on Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This), which was great right after Cars. And it's the long version, too.

I already knew I didn't like Oh Darling. I don't think it's a shock that sort of a song doesn't appeal to me, no matter who it's by.

And Octopus's Garden ... more silliness. I don't know, I like Syd Barrett's whimsical material just fine, but this doesn't appeal.

I'm surprised you're still playing the thing.

After Sweet Dreams was Take On Me. Not one of my favorites, but there's no denying its 80's icon status, especially the video.

I loved how Every Breath You Take followed it. With Take On Me having a somewhat lengthy fadeout, the sequencing was fantastic.

You thought I'd give up? I'm a persistent bastard!

I Want You (She's So Heavy) isn't actually bad musically. I'd go so far as to say good. But it really, really badly needs better lyrics. Despite the good music, it's just another throwaway track to me.

Now I want to go watch "Across The Universe".

Here Comes The Sun is the best song so far. It's composed well and stops before it becomes a bother.

Oh yes, and it's quite entertaining.
