It makes it just slightly too Patrick Bateman for my liking (though I love that track its pretty much the opposite of this albums feel). Its nice to have on the demo but as previously pointed out I prefer the 'heavier bits of abbey road/solo Lennon' feel a bit more

It's a kind of Welsh way of saying things I think. My fella's been working there and he says the phrasing can be a bit reversed.

Nothing more likely to make me see despair than the video for There's No One Quite Like Grandma. Sinister stuff.

This made me chuckle immensely.

Totally agree, think with the final arrangement of the track and the addition of the choir it could have been unbelievable, a little spookily un-hinged but brilliant.
