Beatles or Zevon?

Which of these songs about misguided maniacs do you prefer?







Both remind me of one of Gahan Wilson's better cartoons: guy is standing in a room surrounded by tables loaded with saws and cutlery with an open trunk in the corner. He's saying on the phone: "Gee, Linda, I'm really sorry you couldn't make it tonight."

I won't say which one I prefer, so I won't prejudice the vote. You'll have to cast your vote in the responses, as I can't make a poll.

1. To me they're very different

I like Maxwell because it's so much fun to sing along with (and I'm an original Beatles fan). Excitable Boy is much much scarier!

2. Unmatched cruelty

Who would be so cruel as to try to make me choose one or the other?

4. And I said to the shrink:

"Shrink? I want to kill. I mean I want to kill."

Well, actually, that was Arlo, but I'm nothing if not musically versatile.........
