Paul wrote this about the civil rights movement. When I learned that, it made it just that much more beautiful. :)

My interpretati o n is that when we are ready we have the wings and eyes and most of all heart to rise above whatever is letting us forget we have wings and hope. THe moment for me is now...Should I die in it my god who will bring me home... Ah father thank you for giving the Beatles a voice..

It's a really nice cover. Her voice compliments the feel of the song, and I like how she didn't really change anything else. So lovely.

Great cover. Not easily done. One of the few songs ever that have made me stop, listen, and tear up. Natalie Merchant's "Beloved Wife" pulls on those same strings.

Pretty cover, but still like the Beatles one better.

no this version is so much better then the beatles
Report as inappropriate
I think not. This one is better. Maybe I'm biased, but still . . .

Not a bad cover, but not one that really adds anything, and since the original is The Beatles, it is innately inferior.
Report as inappropriate
Can you imagine the arrogance of thinking you could possibly record "Blackbird" with 10% of the grace of the original Beatles recording? Yes Sarah pulls it off beautifully. This is a very pretty cover.
Report as inappropriate
I love Sarah's version of this song! So sweet.

The previous post is right. The artist IS Ms. McLachlan, but the track is called "Black" on the Solace album.
