    I always found those lyrics to be disturbing, but I put it down as an aberration.

    The lyrics are disturbing. I read somewhere that John Lennon had big regrets about this song.

    I dig this for 2 reasons, neither of which have anything to do with the Beatles. 1) the grey chalky graphics are very suggestive … a Ken Loach film? an illicit snapshot of coal miners? my own memories of the interminable escalators of the St Petersburg metro? 2) hats! I am told my grandfather, who I remember well in some regards but dimly in others, never left his house without a hat. There was a hat for his job as train driver, a hat for taking his wife shopping, and another hat for bowling down to the Bunch of Grapes Hotel to get jollied. In the backyard he was bare-headed, whether strangling bastard kittens of the neighbour’s mog Mitsy or turning over a new lettuce patch for the Spring. Funnily enough, at the university college baby photo quiz I put a photo of him instead of me and 9 out of 10 residents picked me out. I used to collect hats that largely I never wore. I like hats: the icing on our crowns of insecurity and intemperance. The best hat in the world is a motorcycle helmet, because when I talk to myself it reminds me of the whispered vocals in 10CC’s ‘I’m Not In Love’.
