Let It Be Song Facts (from Wikipedia)
- Let It Be was released in March 1970 as a single, and (in an alternate mix) as the title track of their album Let It Be.
- At the time of its release, it had the highest debut on the Billboard Hot 100, coming in at Number 6.
- It was written and sung by Paul McCartney.
- It was The Beatles’ final single before McCartney announced his departure from the band.
- McCartney said he had the idea of “Let It Be” after he had a dream about his mother during the tense period surrounding the sessions for The Beatles (the “White Album”). According to McCartney, the song’s reference to “Mother Mary” was not a biblical reference.
- The phrase has at times been used as a reference to the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus of Nazareth; in fact, the words “let it be” are direct quote from the Prayer of the Annunciation, Mary’s response to the Angel Gabriel in Luke 1.38. Nevertheless, McCartney explained that his mother — who died of cancer when Paul was fourteen — was the inspiration for the “Mother Mary” lyric.
- McCartney later said, “It was great to visit with her again. I felt very blessed to have that dream. So that got me writing “Let It Be”.
- He also said in a later interview about the dream that his mother had told him “It will be all right, just let it be.”
- When asked if the song referred to the Virgin Mary, however, McCartney has typically answered the question by assuring his fans that they can interpret the song however they wish.
