My friend was playing this on his guitar and being all proud of it so I wanted to see what was so special and when I played it myself it was so beautiful. I now I understand why he was so proud of being able to play it

My husband and I heard this song performed by Paul at one of his concerts. It was so hauntingly beautiful we both cried! Love it, Love it, Love it.

i came across this song when i was just flipping through mah beatles collection one day, and i just fell in love with it.
the lyrics can have various meanings but the one that was most appealing to me was the thing about getting a second chance to fullfil your dreams. like the feeling conveyed in "take these broken wings and learn to fly".

Just a small correction there, the song was not written by Lennon but by Paul M. And it is indeed a beautifull song!

My older brother used to play and sing this song. I love hearing it because the two of us were very close before he left for college. Wonderful memories, hauntingly beautiful song.

DMB sings blackbird @ red rocks | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/6/07
Since I heard the Dave Matthews Band performing it live@red rocks I can´t get this fabulous Beatles-Song out of my mind. It comes close to be the most haunting piece of popular music ever written.

Beautiful and fragile song we used when our first son Sam Van Mol was born...
So now our emotions of this joyable moment are forever connected with this song (tears in our eyes)...
Bach | Reviewer: Daisy | 5/13/07
I heard Paul talking about this song on the radio. He was trying to learn Bach's Bouree, which George Harrison could play. He didn't get through it so he took the part he could play and adapted it into the song.
And I'm glad he did. beautiful...

I learned this song on guitar and when i play it a warm feeling washes over me as if my grandpa (who passed away when i was 7) is sitting right next to me.
My thoughts... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/1/07
To me this song can be for anyone though. I take it to heart knowing that all I've been through in the last year has been for the good. My broken wings and sunken eyes are only temporary... and I've been waiting for this moment when i'm finally free...

What Paul McCartney was singing about in Blackbird | Reviewer: Alan
On youtube.com I believe it is, if one searches blackbird, will if you find the right Blackbird video, it being a long clip presenting about 5 or so songs (hint),will hear Paul performing as one of these songs the song Blackbird for an auduiance but first he explains he wrote it about the trouble the black people were having in the civil rights struggle in America in the 60s. He said, in England they refer to girls as birds. So he immagined a black girl (Black bird)and her experience and victory I add. Hearing this shattered my own immage or interprettion of the song, but I appreciate not only the beauty of the song but the great mind of the composer and his sensitivity to the civil rights cause. It is at least one of my favorite songs of all time if not my favorite.
Profound Meaning | Reviewer: Jake
It is a song about oppressed people. John Lennon got the inspiration to write this song during the civil rights unrest in America in the 60's. It is meant to inspire and empower those that don't have a "voice" in society. The irony, in fact, is that the blackbird can sing beautifully. I love this song. It makes my heart cry...
