What I'd like to hear is the true single version of Freedom, released by itself as a CD single. Anybody got it?
I am probably in the minority here, but I never liked "Freedom." I appreciate the fact that Paul's heart was in the right place. I really don't care for the song and think it is not at all commensurate with Paul's vast talent.

I've said all along that I think "Freedom" is the equivalent of an Honors student turning in F work. I also think "Freedom" is equivalent to an Honors student hastily dashing off poor work after midnight on the day the assignment is due.
