This week’s song of the week comes (yet again) from the White Album.
“Birthday” was written by Paul almost on the spot in the studio. One of the harder rocking tracks on this or any Beatles album, “Birthday” is notable both for its group dynamic that, sadly, is lacking on a lot of the White Album, and for the inclusion of Yoko Ono and Pattie Harrison on backing vocals.
Enjoy! And if your birthday is within sight (as both of ours are), Happy Birthday!
