Are you moving earlier?
Have you had a personal time change?
Yeah i’m moving earlier; I’m trending earlier.
I think that early is morally better —
People have been telling me my whole life,
“People who get up early are morally superior.”
It’s because we’re not up early
Enough to defend…

Q: When you think “Seattle Music” what band/song do you think of?
A: I still think of Soundgarden’s Outshined, despite 20+ years of subsequent great music, because I imprinted on it like a chimp baby imprints on a terry cloth surrogate mother. Early Soundgarden really DID reflect the feeling of Seattle twenty years ago, and evokes memories of darker times, but that city doesn’t exist any more. Seattle doesn’t sound like that now, and hasn’t for fifteen years.

I can’t recommend this movie highly enough.
Maybe even required viewing.
The Beatles - “We Can Work It Out” (“We Can Work It Out” b/w “Day Tripper”; Single; December, 1965)
Like I said, I think some of the best Beatles songs bear the strong imprimatur of one of the primary songwriters—but then benefits and really blooms from a bridge or turn featuring a lively and contrasting “But, on the other hand…” rebuttal by one of the other Beatles.
To me, that balance and tension—and lack of ultimate resolution or easy reading—was a big part of what made the MacLen songs so grand and so timeless.
"I took it to John to finish it off, and we wrote the middle together. Which is nice: ‘Life is very short. There’s no time for fussing and fighting, my friend.’ Then it was George Harrison’s idea to put the middle into waltz time, like a German waltz. That came on the session, it was one of the cases of the arrangement being done on the session."
ELO - “10538 Overture” (1972)
In the late 1960s, Roy Wood — guitarist, vocalist and songwriter of The Move — had an idea to form a new band that would use violins, cellos, string basses, horns and woodwinds to give their music a classical sound, taking rock music in the direction “that The Beatles had left off”.
The Beatles - “And Your Bird Can Sing” (Revolver Sessions; Take 2)
One of my favorites on the Anthology is, ‘And Your Bird Can Sing,’ which is a nice song, but this take of it was one we couldn’t use at the time. John and I got a fit of the giggles while we were doing the double-track. You couldn’t have released it at the time. But now you can. Sounds great just hearing us lose it on a take.
