Song of the day

"Leave It", by Mike McGear.

Listen to this song without context. Without knowing who Mike McGear is. (YouTube spoiler alert.)

You hear echoes of the vocal stylings of both Ferry and Eno, mixed with a pinch of UK Squeeze, and filtered through a Beatles prism. You detect more of 1982 than of 1974.

Then check out the story of Mike McGear. And be amazed.
