    Happy Birthday To You - The Beatles song WWW.GOODNEWS.WS

    27 356 visualizzazioni "Birthday" is a Lennon/McCartney song performed by The Beatles on their double album The Beatles (commonly known as The White Album). It is the opening track on the third side of the LP (or the second disc in CD versions of the record). The song is an example of the Beatles' return to more traditional rock and roll form, although their music had increased in complexity and it had developed more of its own characteristic style by this point. McCartney and Ringo Starr performed it for Starr's 70th birthday on July 7, 2010. The song was largely written during a recording session at Abbey Road Studios on 18 September 1968 by Paul McCartney. When Lennon came in, the main riff and most of the lyrics had been written, and the two finished it from there.During the session, the Beatles and the recording crew made a short trip around the corner to McCartney's house to watch the 1956 rock & roll movie The Girl Can't Help It which was being shown for the first time on British television. After the movie they returned to record "Birthday".George Martin was away so his assistant Chris Thomas produced the session. His memory is that the song was mostly Paul's: "Paul was the first one in, and he was playing the birthday riff. Eventually the others arrived, by which time Paul had literally written the song, right there in the studio." Everyone in the studio sang in the chorus and it was 5 am by the time the final mono mix was completed.John Lennon said in his Playboy interview in 1980: "'Birthday' was written in the studio. Just made up on the spot. I think Paul wanted to write a song like 'Happy Birthday Baby' ( [sic], Happy, Happy Birthday Baby), the old fifties hit. But it was sort of made up in the studio. It was a piece of garbage.""Birthday" begins with an intro drum fill, then moves directly into a blues progression in A (in the form of a guitar riff doubled by the bass) with McCartney singing at the top of his chest voice with Lennon on a lower harmony. After this section, a drum break lasting eight measures brings the song into the middle section, which rests entirely on the dominant. A repeat of the blues progression/guitar riff instrumental section, augmented by piano brings the song into a bridge before returning to a repeat of the first vocal section. The song is among McCartney's most intense vocal performances given the range in which he sings during the blues run. This song is the one of two tracks on The Beatles in which Lennon and McCartney share lead vocal duties together, the other being Cry Baby Cry where Lennon sings the majority and McCartney sings the coda.
