The Beatles – Old Brown Shoe

Leave a comment

Counting down the 10 WORST BEATLES SONGS – “Old Brown Shoe” claims the #3 spot and finally puts George Harrison into the spotlight. George was like a bystander in the never-ending competition between John and Paul to write the best songs, but his contributions were usually tasty. (“You Like Me Too Much,” “Taxman,” “Within You Without You,” etc.) This one I don’t care for. The jangly piano sound is trite, it’s stuck on one chord for too long, and the chromatic changes when he finally gets to them are at best false cheer. The lyrics, as epitomized by the title, are suitable for throwing away. I suspect John of urging this as the B-side of “The Ballad of John and Yoko” so as to be sure his A-side would get all the attention.
