      Thanks. Let me just go back into my time machine to 1980 and invent the internet so I can post this…..ok, I’m back. That was pretty cool. I couldn’t find anything about EMI being aware of this. Do you have an encyclopedia I can borrow? 😛

    Beck’s The New Pollution also uses that bass riff (with one different note). It even uses the same double-snare drum beat of the Jam track.

    Side note: has anyone mentioned the 60s Batman theme song in reference to Taxman? 🙂

    This is similar to changingman and ELO 10538 overture and Brand New Toy and Supertramp, Breakfast in America. A real snapper up of unconsidered trifles is our Mr Weller!
