O ne of those chimerical creatures that attends two titanic egos, like David Bowie & Bing Crosby, David Bowie & Mick Jagger, David Bowie & Queen... well, you get the picture. I never liked “Say Say Say” on the radio, barely made it through the video without retching, and generally avoided it like any good punk-loving eighteen-year-old would (was “Coming Up” so long ago?). Today, it doesn’t bug me so much, the Paul and Michael thing. Maybe Pepsi could still use this song for one of their commercials. At least there wasn’t a pubic hair in the wine on the soda can (Clarence Thomas, I’m looking at you). But I digress. The B side is a nonalbum track that’s actually better than half of the stuff which made it onto Pipes of Peace (picked the wrong peck of pickles there). Sort of a sweet throwback, this “Ode to a Koala Bear,” or koala-type bear, which would be some kind of lemur I think, since I can’t think of any bear that looks like a koala bear that isn’t one. Anyway, it’s a nice surprise; no C Moon mind you, but one of these days you should hear it.
