Let It Be

The theme I chose for this year is 

Greatest Hits as suggested by AI

It’s important to note that AI was only used for the song suggestion, not in the actual putting together of the post. 

Today our suggested Greatest Hit is:  Let It Be

Wikipedia tells us this about the song:

McCartney said he had the idea of "Let It Be" after he had a dream about his mother during the tense period surrounding the sessions for The Beatles ("the White Album") in 1968. Mary Patricia McCartney died of cancer in 1956, when he was fourteen. In rehearsing the song with the Beatles in January 1969, in place of the "Mother Mary" lyric, McCartney occasionally sang "Brother Malcolm", a reference to the Beatles' assistant Mal Evans. McCartney later said: "It was great to visit with her again. I felt very blessed to have that dream. So that got me writing 'Let It Be'." In a later interview he said about the dream that his mother had told him, "It will be all right, just let it be." When asked if the phrase "Mother Mary" in the song referred to the Virgin Mary, McCartney has typically replied that listeners can interpret the song however they like.



  1. Just had to be this one instead of ":Little Latin Lupe Lou." A true classic ("Let It Be," that is).

  2. This is a great song and I love the words
    Neat that his mom came to him in a dream

  3. I always thought he was talking about the Mary and assumed it was a drug induced religious vision of sorts. I didn't know it was about his mum. I wonder if Let it Be inspired Elsa to sing Let it Go?
