BADFINGER: “Come And Get It” review
Unknown (Chart chance)
Written by Paul McCartney for the film “Magic Christian,” which stars a Starr named Ringo. These are the Iveys of old and this is a commercial (Obviously!) stab which could get them into the charts. A drawling sort of group vocal with ponderous, insistent beat. But I’m not struck.
