Nostalgia #64: The Long and Winding Road

When doing my task online, I always put my headset on and listen to my old favorite song. I love 70s, 80s and up to this generation but whenever I hear thissong, I can't help but feel nostalgic. It always brings back old times. Memory gap can't stop me to remember the hit that Beatles made in 70s.

"The Long and Winding Road" is a ballad written by Paul McCartney (credited to Lennon/McCartney) that originally appeared on The Beatles' album Let It Be. It became The Beatles' 20th and last number-one song in the United States on 23 May 1970, and was the last single released by the quartet. "The Long and Winding Road" was listed with "For You Blue" as a double-sided hit when the single hit number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 in 1970. (source: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

McCartney originally wrote the song at his farm in Scotland, and was inspired by the growing tension among the Beatles. McCartney said later:

I just sat down at my piano in Scotland, started playing and came up with that song, imagining it was going to be done by someone like Rey Charles. "I have always found inspiration in the calm beauty of Scotland and again it proved the place where I found inspiration."

The video is not mine. I used to blog this in my old Friendster account. I'm feeling nostalgic with this song from Beatles. What music makes you feel nostalgic?
