Did the drum take after a five mile run - it shows.
The only song that I've ever played on when I was not allowed to hear the backing track. "Just make whooping oodle noises for three minutes", was the cry from the control room. 'Bastards', I thought at the time.
The backing vocal (counter-melody) in the final chorus is utterly beautiful - so are Ed's bubbles in the second verse....
More mellow stuff.
In L.A. if you drive round in a limo in the wrong area someone might resent it and shoot randomly into the blacked out glass.
