Come Together (live), by Spiritualized

Primal Scream, and The Beatles of course, have songs of the same title. But this one has always fascinated me as a wicked, beautiful piece of pop pretentiousness. An artifact of noise which is also an anthemic machinery of organized melodic sound. Good to remember grandiose things can still be created. Great for these moments of national uncertainty and division. A song for us, the sad and the fucked, the ones who jump first and look later.
