although wings did some amazing disco eg goodnight tonight and silly love songs I reckon a beatles number might have been closer to supermax. I can just hear the lovemachine number in Ringo’s voice. tbh though I think they would’ve veered closer to prog or maybe supertramp territory
Lennon might well have gone down the new wave path in 81, maybe knocking something out with Ferry, Byrne or Bowie. He was reconnecting with NY scene in 80 after the years of hibernation.
