"Lyric video" for Show Me the Way.

Pleasant reminders of Neil's 'Rain' soundtrack, similar atmosphere. Kind of thin on first impression. Never really loved Liam's voice but he seems to be doing the lion's share of backing vocals on these new songs. Neil's singing is a little flat in the verses (as in sharp/flat), bothers my musician brain.

Every time I listened to Show Me The Way, a song I love, I felt some buried memory stirring in the back of my mind.  But I could never quite retrieve it till now.  Today I suddenly remembered:

Here is One Day (At A Time) by John Lennon, from Mind Games.  Listening to this song again after an interval of almost forty years, it now sounds to me like Neil, Sharon and Liam hopped into a time machine with one of the demos for Show Me The Way, travelled back to New York in 1973, and presented the song to an entranced John and Yoko -- who, after their encounter with the strange Kiwi time travelers, released it pretty much unabridged (though they may have got their mate Bowie to add that sax solo) as their own.
