• McCartney on the Composition of "Lady Madonna"

    From Norbert K@21:1/5 to All on Thu Apr 7 07:42:00 2022
    "'Lady Madonna' was me sitting at the piano trying to write a bluesy boogie-woogie thing. I got my left hand doing an arpeggio thing with the chord, an ascending boogie-woogie left hand, then a descending right hand. I always liked that, the
    juxtaposition of a line going down meeting a line going up. That was basically what it was. It reminded me of Fats Domino for some reason, so I started doing a Fats Domino impression. It took my voice to a very odd place."

    McCartney, quoted in the Barry Miles bio
