Regarding that Long, Winding Road29/12/2009
See, the thing about that song, despite Paul’s rant, it is much better due to the overly dramatic orchestration and choir. Sure, I like the posthumously released, sparser version. And Ray Charles really was meant to sing the song, but it is, in my opinion, a better song because of Spector’s vision.
Were it not for such drama, we should never have known this wonder.
