The Beatles – Blackbird
I heard the last side of Abbey Road yesterday after a long time thanks to Guy Garvey playing it on his show. Listening to Paul McCartney sing ‘Golden Slumbers’ I decided to this week tip my hat to the man.
Due to (or in spite of) the amount that has been written about him and The Beatles it’s easy to forget to sometimes acknowledge how many great songs he’s written and what he’s achieved. We tend to leave these things generally until after the person we’re praising is not around to hear it. Not this time.
So Paul, if you’re reading, ‘Blackbird’ is one of my favourite songs of yours. And you were always my Nan’s favourite Beatle.
