Dave Grohl played and sang Blackbird during the Oscars' tribute to the film industry people had passed away in the past year.

This is my favourite song, I love it so much I got the lyrics tattooed onto my back.  I think that it is a real positive message for anybody who may be going through a hard time aswell.

Paul McCartney Meets Women Who Inspired Beatles' 'Blackbird'

subtitle: "Two members of the Little Rock Nine visit singer backstage at Arkansas concert"

If you don't know about the Little Rock nine, the article is very informative.

Singer/songwriter Rachel Fuller, wife of Pete Townsend, has written an Animal Requiem for a service for pet owners to mourn their lost pets.

I composed the Animal Requiem for all of us who have lost a much beloved pet. They become parts of our families and the pain we feel is equal to the love we felt for them.

For releasing it, she wanted something a bit special.

I wanted to have an extra track after the Requiem and I approached Sir Paul McCartney about a collaboration on Blackbird .

It might not be what he was writing about but for me the song has a message about animal welfare and rising up against oppression. (Proceeds from the requiem will go to animal welfare charities and independent shelters.) Harmonically, the song would fit beautifully.

I had to go to Pete, who is an old friend of Paul’s. Everyone knows Paul is a huge supporter of animal welfare and Pete wrote him a letter explaining the project and asking if I could record Blackbird using a choir and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Paul wrote back very quickly saying "This is cool with me. It's a great project." If the other people say "Yes", you can have the original Beatles tapes.

They did so I added the RPO and choir to his singing and playing. It’s great to have the prestige of the Beatles estate for the requiem.

So it seems we have a new version of the original on the way, if that makes sense.

The album will be released for download (I bet one track gets downloaded a whole lot more than the others) on 31 January and on CD 8 March.

No sign of it on YouTube yet.
