Welcome to our first release of 2021! While the last year may not have been great for many of you, we hope that the first year of the project helped bring you plenty of enjoyment. Over the next year we hope to bring you many more great experiences within The Beatles: Rock Band.
Let’s kick off the year with “Blackbird”
“Blackbird” was written by Paul after seeing the struggles experienced by women of color during the civil rights movement. The song’s lyrics are intended to be inspirational, carrying the message “don’t give up, there is hope”. During production, the song’s lyrics evolved into Blackbird, with the bird acting symbolic to the listener. This change meant the song could apply to any issues experienced in life. The guitar part was inspired by Johann Sebastian Bach’s composition “Bouree in E Minor”, a piece in which both Paul and George had both learned to play as children.
