For obvious reasons, including President Obama’s tax proposals and yet another honor for the increasingly tiresome Paul McCartney, we turn to the Beatles and “Taxman,” the George Harrison tune, for this week’s Friday Factory Tune. More honors for George!
We remember watching these Beatles cartoons as a kid and thinking, “Oh, this isn’t any good.” Times proves us right.
“Taxman” always reminds us of “Pretty Green” by the Jam, and of course, Paul Weller built his career on borrowing freely from first the mods and then Mo-Town. Play the Supremes’ “Can’t Hurry Love” right next to “Town Called Malice,” and you can forgive George his borrowing from “She’s So Fine.” And “Taxman,” that was an original.
