Interesting. I've always read the same story that the Beatles weren't happy with the recording, left it in the vault and then later John donated it. Will have a look for that Beatles Monthly entry.

Always good to learn new things.

Edit: Found them in the March 1968 edition of 'The Beatles Monthly'.

Lovely……..To read those pages again.

I've still got a complete set from 65 under the bed  somewhere……..I'll dig them out and have a night in with a glass of wine.

 

I remember being so jealous of these girls getting in on a recording……And also longing to hear this lost in the can recording…….Across The Universe ……It sounded far out which we thought was the direction we were going in until Lady M appeared when we about faced……..It's Only Rock and Roll but I like it.

Having just gone through this I realize I don't play it well at all.

That guy's great! I've learned so much from him.

The thing that gets me about LM is the backing vocals. I remember really noticing them for the first time, and that's when I began to like the song a whole lot more.

The lyrics are pretty clever too, first the children running, then LM needs to fix her stockings because they have a run in them.

The piano is also great as with all Paul piano parts, and the way he sings it is perfect for the song. It's just a really good song. I think it goes everywhere it needs to!

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Can buy Joe love!

A new interview with Paul where he mentions his inspiration for Lady Madonna.

From the article:

Sir Paul McCartney has spoken of his inspiration for the Beatles’ hit Lady Madonna – a woman breastfeeding her child.

Sir Paul said he was inspired to write the song after seeing an image of a woman in National Geographic magazine in the 1960s.

National Geographic’s January 1965 issue published a photograph entitled Mountain Madonna, of a woman whose way of life was threatened, with one child at her breast and another laughing up at her.

“She looked very proud and she had a baby … And I saw that as a kind of Madonna thing, mother and child,” Sir Paul said.

“Sometimes you see pictures of mothers and you go ‘She’s a good mother’. You could just tell there’s a bond and it just affected me, that photo. So I was inspired to write Lady Madonna , my song, from that photo.”

That post was brought to you by a future Ahhh Girl:

That proves how cool The Beatles are. They can get inspiration from a newspaper, a box of chocolates, past songs, and a picture of a breastfeeding mother. Wow.

I always liked this song. It is very similar to Hey Bulldog , with the piano and the piercing guitars.

Good point, I never noticed that. The main difference is that Hey Bulldog is biting and almost bitter-sounding, whereas this one is more positive and gently jocular.

Thats just Lennon vs McCartney, I suppose. It's a bit like Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane .
