November 16, 2009

Forty-four years after the Beatles first played Shea Stadium, Paul McCartney returned to Queens to play the first concert at Citi Field. Withan exceptionally well-preserved voice, Macca plows through Beatles andWings hits, plus solo gems. This is McCartney's sixth live album since 1990 — most with a nearly identical version of "Hey Jude" and "Live andLet Die." Skip to a blazing version of "Day Tripper," which hadn't beentouched since the 1960s. Best is "A Day in the Life," featuring McCartney singing both his and John Lennon's parts.

    “Madame George”

    Van Morrison | 1968

    One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
