One of my favorite artists covering another one of my favorite artists. Doesn’t get much better than that. “All My Loving” is a song from the Beatles’ 1963 album ‘With the Beatles’. It was written by Paul McCartney but credited to Lennon-McCartney. Amy performed this acoustic cover at the Glastonbury Festival in 2004.

Favorite Song From Each Beatle: [2/4]

↳ Paul McCartney: Blackbird

Album: The White Album – released November 22nd, 1968

“While John was busy experimenting with sounds, Paul started and finished the recording of ‘Blackbird’, a lovely new composition which featured his own lead vocal, double-tracked in places via an overdub, accompanied by his acoustic guitar and a metronome gently ticking away in the background. It was a straightforward recording – no reductions necessary – and was perfected by the 32nd run through, just 11 of which were complete.

There was one other addition to the four-track tape: chirruping blackbirds, courtesy of “Volume Seven: Birds of Feather”, from the Abbey Road taped sound effects collection, the doors of the trusty green cabinet already being open during this evening for raidings by John Lennon. “I taped that on one of the first portable EMI tape-recorders, in my back garden in Ickenham, about 1965,” recalls Stuart Eltham.

“There are two recordings, one of the bird singing, the other making an alarm sound when I startled it.” Six mono remixes of the song were made before the session in studio two ended, the sixth being ‘best’.”

I'm Only Sleeping (Beatles)
  • I'm Only Sleeping (Beatles)
  • Elliott Smith
  • Unreleased/Live
Play

This is one of my favorite Elliott Smith rarities, every time I listen to it, it makes me smile from ear to ear, hearing him singing (and sometimes messing up) this Beatles song and when an audience member starts singing with him, he doesn’t get mad or stop playing he simply says, “You got to get closer to the mic.” It just warms my heart to hear him laugh and it just shows how sweet a human being Elliott was and it just makes me so happy to hear it.

WOO, thank you so much!! :’) I needed this distraction so I don’t fucking murder my neighbors below me. Dear authorities: THIS IS NOT ACTUALLY A THREAT BUT PLEASE TELL THEM TO TURN THEIR FUCKING MUSIC DOWN - GOD CAN HEAR IT JUST FINE FROM HEAVEN, ALL RIGHT, I ASSURE YOU.

5. if you had to live in the world of an album which one would it be and why:
OH SHIT THIS IS SUCH A GOOD QUESTION. I think living in the world of The Beatles’ Revolver would be pretty damn cool. Most songs on that album (maybe except for “Eleanor Rigby”…and maybe a couple others I never listen to) are pretty chill/uplifting and the political aspect of “Taxman” would just be there to keep things interesting. LOL

11. if you could have your favorite artist sing one of their songs to you which song would it be:
Off the top of my head, my first thought honestly was Janis Joplin and “Little Girl Blue.” :/ But if you mean artists who are alive…Tom Petty, “Learning to Fly.”

21. what album do you wish you could unhear and discover again:
Oh man, so, so many…Janis Joplin’s I Got Dem Ol’ Kozmic Blues Again, Mama!, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ Damn the Torpedoes and Long After Dark, Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours and Fleetwood Mac…there are so many more, but those are the main ones. Basically my favorite albums. LOL

27. what lyrics do you want to doodle on every piece of paper:
“So I started out for god knows where, I guess I’ll know when I get there.” (Kinda fitting, too - could be applicable to anything, really.)

I found this gem whilst browsing through my old covers. It brought back a lot of memories. There are actually a lot more of these, and all of them were for a guy I have loved - a guy that I still might love today. I thought I’d like to share this story with you guys.

_____________________________________________________________

Part One.

I know… this version kinda sucks. I remember you telling me how you loved “The Beatles” and that this was your favorite song. I spent the whole day recording; frustrated because I couldn’t make it sound right. I wanted it to be perfect for you. 

After a lot of retakes and having gone through several glasses of water, I finally got to send you the cover that night. My nerves jumbled up and my heart raced because I didn’t know how you’d react. Would you hate it? Would you think I’m too corny for doing this? I don’t know. 

It felt like years when you finally replied. You told me it was awesome. I was ecstatic. 

That was the first of the many songs I sung for you.
