But, the sessions did prove fruitful in one sense. I'm personally thankful for the song "222," which was featured as a B-side on the bonus edition of Memory Almost Full, (along with two other tracks that were also much better than most of the album). McCartney, however you feel about him, has these shining moments of brilliance that almost excuse his past musical sins (and there have been many). It seems that these moments occur when McCartney's not trying to be McCartney. When he drops his typically overjoyed and diplomatic facade, the artist seems to make an appearance.
McCartney performed all of the instruments on this song, crafting a mostly instrumental piano piece around hi-hat tapped percussion and McCartney's romantically whispered observations about some anonymous female. It's almost sort of a jazz ballad. Gorgeous track and easily one of his least McCartney-esque. I remember being amazed that this came from him.
