Words and chords. The semantic shifts of the Beatles' …
“Blackbird” fit with its time, but it also attained a sort of timelessness. You don’t need to know McCartney’s original musical or lyrical inspirations to appreciate it. Furthermore, acts ranging from the Waterboys to Eddie Vedder have covered the song over the years. Clearly, its message has remained relevant, and its melody continues to move listeners. And to that we say fly, blackbird, fly.
In the Beatles' songs each of the basic chords can be ..
Very rough album but recorded in 17 hours and on a shoestring budget so what do you expect ?:) What i learned when i was discovering the beatles is that they produced an awesome collection of melodies that was let down by banal lyrics.

But its johns songs that keep the album afloat , the title track , "youve got to hide yr love away" are fascinating cries from the heart while the fame maelstrom gathered force."ticket to ride" is probably the beatles 1st psychedelic record and one of their best singles, "youre gonna lose that girl" features the bands best harmonies on the album while "its only love" and "tell me what you see" are charming and catchy but daft lyrically .

Good point: Lest anyone think that Chris has stopped rockin', one aforementioned Baptized track — sort of a modern-day, tongue-in-cheek take on Bryan Adams's "Summer of '69"— proves that Chris still loves that old-time rock 'n' roll. "Long Live Rock 'n' Roll" is an amusingly sentimental romp that begins with Chris declaring, "I was born the day that disco died" and then launches into healthy music-geek debates about Billy Joel, Courtney Love, the Beatles vs. the Rolling Stones, and "Van Hagar." Says Chris: "Martin Johnson and Sam Hollander approached me with this idea, and it was something I've never done before. Sam had this lyric: 'We used to wonder about who's better, Elton John or Billy Joel/And we still wonder if Kurt really wrote the songs she sang in Hole.' I was like, 'Wow, I've never done anything where I've referenced anyone in a song, especially…not in a negative light, necessarily, but something that's kind of a jab.' But it was funny, and I was like, 'Hopefully they won't come looking for me after this!' I've never written anything like that. People are so used to seeing this hard-ass face, everything is so serious, and if anybody hung out with this band they'd realize that is the last thing we are is serious! So this is a good thing, because no one's ever seen this side of me as a person and especially as a songwriter. My favorite line in the whole song is the Van Halen/Van Hagar thing. That's one of my favorite lyrical moments on this whole record."
