Sean Lennon Plays Paul McCartney’s Favorite Beatles Song On His Birthday
John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s son and musician Sean Lennon shared a video celebrating The Beatles icon Paul McCartney‘s birthday on his official Instagram account. Lennon also stated that he wanted to show his respect and love for him by playing one of his favorite songs from the band.
The Beatles released their seventh studio album ‘Revolver’ on August 5, 1966, and the band members experimented with different approaches and styles while working on the record. Their automatic double-tracking, varispeed, reversed tapes, close audio miking, and many other techniques drew significant attention from music critics and rock music lovers.
A track from the record, ‘Here, There and Everywhere,’ which McCartney started writing after being inspired by The Beach Boys’ song ‘God Only Knows.’ Then, he and Lennon completed the work, becoming another milestone for rock music as a Lennon-McCartney songwriting collaboration product. In addition, Sean Lennon learned from a very close resource that it was a song that McCartney loved among his other creations.
Therefore, in his recent post, Sean Lennon brilliantly performed a cover version of ‘Here, There and Everywhere’ for McCartney’s 80th birthday. The musician expressed his gratitude to the Beatles legend for his contribution to music with his unique works by adding that he loved him so much like his fans worldwide. Lennon’s performance was proof of his natural-born talent, although he defined it as rough.
Lennon’s IG post read as follows:
“A little birdy told me this was one of your favorite Beatles tunes. So Happy Birthday! Thank you for all the beautiful music. You have mine and the whole world’s undying love and respect. (This version is a bit rough because it’s such a pretty song I kept getting choked up and starting again!).”
