    [2] This song brings me close to tears whenever it comes on the shuffle... hearing Paul say that they had to imagine John as being simply out for a stroll or out for lunch while recording it in order to not break down emotionally...man, one day in the beyond, they'll all be free as a bird together...even if for a moment...all differences gone.

    Without a known release date or liner notes, when played back over the radio, this song puzzled me for many years. It does have some of the Jeff Lynne sound of the 80s. Personally the 1995 was a year of freedom for me. Most good music was made in those few years. In the end there is the hidden phrase "Turned out nice again", which I always thought was a modern lo-fi TV news recording saying something like "it's gone by now", meaning good times and freedom.

    At 60 I wonder whatever happened to the world I once new. I don't feel free as a bird anymore like I did in the day.
