P ower to the people, right on! Not the people in power, or the people who voted for the people in power, but those other people. No, not the lazy ones who didn’t vote. To the left of them. There you go. Those people. Give them the power. If that doesn’t poke your brain endlessly, Yoko’s B side will. “Touch Me” is an avant jazz noise collage similar to some of Frank Zappa’s work. It originally appeared on her Plastic Ono Band elpee and is pretty wild stuff. I’ll concede her the match, if only because “Revolution” was so much smarter.
