Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise— 1st stanza from Blackbird by The Beatles
The Beatles’ Blackbird song, recorded in June 1968, always left me with more questions than answers.
- What is the song about?
- Who is the blackbird?
- How could the bird be singing at night when North American blackbirds don’t do that?
At the end of The Beatles recording you can here a blackbird singing. Listen below.
