She’s Leaving Home by Paul McCartney and John Lennon

Aug 30, 2021 9:37:45 PM / by Tim McCarthy

Editor’s Note:  The great legacy of the Beatles is in two pillars: 1. They explored a variety of musical approaches much wider than anyone before or since and 2. I can find some new meaning in many of their songs even today.  “She’s Leaving Home” came up on a Beatles station I was listening to and I was stunned to realize they are talking to every parent – then and now – who thinks the child’s life is actually about the parent.  Amazing.

 

Favorite lyric:

Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly?

How could she do this to me?
