I think the song tanks personally. Its just too damn long and boring anymore for me.
I feel that the White Album is great for diverse reasons.
It has a wide range of sounds, styles, textures and moods.
Some songs are short, experimental and bizarre. Others are more conventional, poppy and catchy.
Such is the juxtaposition of a blank canvas. The conflict of sixties morality is embodied in the desolate obscurity of the White Album; a record that projected a pure white culture now tarnished by the complexities of drugs, politics and war.
The song although indulgent, is a heavy and crooked outlook on life & love.
The enslaved guitar and harrowing harmonies only help the desperate lyric.
As the Mccartney backing vocals of "yeah, yeah, yeah" fade out .... the bitter song 'Happyness Is A warm Gun' begins.
Personally - I think this segment of the White Album is one of its finest moments.
Two full bodied songs that aurally project the Beatles talent during 1968.
