Song of the Day

Today’s Song of the Day is Paul McCartney – Dear Boy.  From Ram in 1971, this is piano pop that sounds almost like choral music, with soaring harmonies, and a coda that sounds like classical music.  I remember when Ram came out how disappointed I was.  I wanted another Beatles’ album, and this was not what I was looking for.  Over the years, however, as I gave it a fresh listen, without my expectations, I came to realize just how good it was.  This is one of my favorite cuts.  I’ll leave to others to interpret the lyrics, and their meaning – praise for Linda or an attack on John.  You be the judge.  But to do so you’ll have to listen for yourself.
