Hey guys, whats up?

Ethan here, from RealLife English, with another kickassLearn English with MusicLesson

for you.

I think youre really going to dig this weeks lesson, youre going to love it,

because it is here by popular request.

Are you ready?

Let it be, Let it be, let it be, let it be…”

Thats right, this weeks song is a classic from the Beatles.

And, although the Beatles are British, this song is a really great way for you to practice

your American T and Glottal Stop T. Im not exactly sure why the Beatlessong sounds

quite American, but there ya go.

And this song was a little bit hard to explain at times because it is very full of metaphors

that are quite open to interpretation by the listener.

So, I tried to bring you some good insight, by doing some research online, and also just

from some of my own interpretations, based on the lyrics.

And I would love to hear, what do you think this song is about?

Let it Be.”

Hey guys, Im back!

I hope that you enjoyed learning with the Beatles.

I know a lot of you had wanted to see something that was not new.

So there you go.

And I just wanted to wrap this up (to end this) video by actually

sharing with you a bit more of the meaning from what I found online.

But first, what I would like you to do is PRESS PAUSE and go down to the comments and

write, what do you think that this song is about?

Before I actually tell you what I found online.

Are you ready?

All right, are you back?

Did you write what you think below?

So what I found through my research was that this song is actually based on a dream that

Paul McCartney had, where his mother came to him and told him the words, “Let it be.”

This was very meaningful to Paul because his mother died when he was very young.

And some other insights that I saw about it was that it may have perhaps come at a difficult

period in Paul McCartneys life when the Beatles were actually breaking up.

So, only Paul knows for sure, but I hope that helps you to understand the lyrics a little

bit better.
