“The Beatles – Long and Winding Road (1970)”

19 May

The Long and Winding Road” is a ballad written by Paul McCartney (credited to Lennon–McCartney) from the Beatles’ album Let It Be. It became the group’s 20th and last number-one song in the United States in June 1970,[2] and was the last single released by the quartet.

While the released version of the song was very successful, the post-production modifications by producer Phil Spector angered McCartney to the point that when he made his case in court for breaking up the Beatles as a legal entity, he cited the treatment of “The Long and Winding Road” as one of six reasons for doing so. New versions of the song with simpler instrumentation were subsequently released by both the Beatles and McCartney.

    That was weird. :-) Beautifully weird. It’s somewhat like that uber-arrangement for Richard Harris’ “MacArthur Park.”

    If you have a copy, a later released one, listen to it sometime. You’ll hear that Paul is talking in song, rather than singing in word (as in this version).
