Beatles: Lady Madonna

November 14, 2007

I learned to play Lady Madonna in high school and sang it with my old friend Todd Buffa. Todd’s voice did a perfect McCartney imitation for this song. I butched it up with the blue note grace notes in the opening piano figure. I’m fairly sure this is a McCartney song: couplet rhyme scheme, it features only him, great sense of functional tonality, and John and George are singing the parts he taught them — exactly what led to the end of the Beatles. The video is hardly a great video as we think of it today, but serves well as a music-delivery-system.
