Thread Name: New "Yes We Can" chorus for 'Let It Be'
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: New 'peace' verse for 'Let It Be'
Thank you for doing this. I do not have an mp3 of this. I have plans to do it again using the whole song and a more spectacular sunset ... hold your breath. I loved Paul McCartney's message in the original song "If you can't fix it, let it be". But I think there are times in life when you need to stand up and try and fix things, so I added words many years ago:
Make me brave, make me strong, let me help this world along.
I will be an answer, let it be.
I am inspired by Obama and his message of change ... it fits McCartney's lyrics and my additional words. So I made this video last summer. (It is taken from Golden Gardens in Seattle of a sunset over the Olympics, put in reverse order to look like a sunrise). I like the metaphor of going from darkness to the sunrise of a new day.
I am pleased with the way this came out, and with the fact that everyone got elected. Thank you again, Genie ... I am not much of a techie with mudcat, yet.
