I've Seen (And Heard) That Road Before


McCoy’s Road

Lots of churn (click here) over how Phil Spector took this Paul McCartney song and added all the strings and big band sound to it.  I recall another critic once noting that Spector took a very nice, rather simple tune and made it sound like a funeral song.  That may have had something to do with my mixed emotions about it too because I like my music upbeat.   Accordingly, this is not one of my favorite Beatles’ tunes.

And yet, I still hear it running through my mind whenever I need a song to get me thru some not-so-good days such as today when we bury my Mom.  

Here is the non-Spectorized version of the song.  See what you think.
