Working Class Hero

Marianne Faithful is another one who gains resonance with with age. This live version of John Lennon's Working Class Hero from the NYC sound stage show Sessions at West 54th in early 2000 puts the studio recording to shame. I love the guy on bass, and how he and the guitarist sort of merge into a single entity. And Marianne's definitely making the most of what's left of her cleavage years.
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
But we're all fuckin' peasants as far as I can see
