Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free.

Blackbird fly blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird fly blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

I really dislike covers (or movie/TV remakes) of classics that don't add anything new. Why bother? I see this is from a soundtrack, so maybe the movie-makers were trying to save a buck by using a cover rather than the original.
 

Actually I really like covers of overplayed-to-exhaustion-classics that don't try to add or remove from the original. The fact that there's somebody else with his or her unique voice and perspective performing, adds enough to the song to make it the same but something completely different all at once. This only works though, if the cover artist is top class. Doesn't work at all with third rate studio musicians that do it for your supermarket shopping background pleasure.

So to conclude, I like this one very much. It breathes new life into a great song that has been played to death.
What does this "cover" add? There are better covers all over YouTube
I had heard that getting the rights to the music for this film was difficult, and it dragged well into production so all the covers wound up needing to be timed exactly like the originals to make the scoring work. 

Regardless, it all works well. Espeically so on this track. Sarah's voice really compliments the tune.

I completely agree.  If I was out and about and heard this played like this in live performance - great, nice rendition, it would be enjoyable.  As a recording it is totally pointless.

Yeah I find Sarah's version fine but unremarkable. Bobby's is far more interesting. I also love this one, even better than the original:

Amazing story... I had kind of the same wiith a local hero down in Mexico City year ago...

Well, I've been dying to share my Sarah story somewhere. RP is as good a place as any. My wife and I were flying to Tofino, B.C. for a winter holiday. The airport (really just a little strip of pavement surrounded by forest) was fogged in and our pilot told us we had to land on the other side of the mountain range. Sarah's flight had also been diverted; she was coming home after performing a tsunami relief concert in Calgary. She looked totally bagged, and had her young daughter with her. She spoke on her cell, telling her husband "I'll just rent a car and get there in a couple hours." "Hi, I'm David," I said to her. "My name's Sarah," she answered. Well, duh. I asked if we could share a vehicle with her and she was glad to. It meant she could sit in the back and tend to her daughter who got car sick on the twisty road. Just your everyday pop star with puke on her jacket. What if I accidentally drive off a cliff? I thought morbidly. That would make me the rock equivalent of Buddy Holly's pilot. Not something I've ever aspired to. We arrived at the "airport" where her husband was waiting for her. He walked towards Sarah, veered with a startled look towards my wife and gave HER a big hug. Turns out they'd gone to high school together. And there you go. Nothing dramatic. Not even any photographic proof to my friends who have cried "bullshit." But it's my favourite brush-with-fame story, made all the more wonderful for just how completely normal it all seemed.

I had just dubbed this tune "pretty good" as a sraight cover of the outstanding original...and just then the bells came in at the bridge... And I thought "they tinkered just enough with the arrangement to make it special without spoiling the essence of the song." So +1 to a Quite Likeable. "

A thoroughly competent, faithful cover. Suitable for bar gigs and movie soundtracks. 

Any other reason to play & listen? Anyone? Bueller? Anyone?

I don't usually like covers of songs I really, really like, but this holds its own quite well.

If we're going to talk covers of this song, I'll put my two cents in for Evan Rachel Wood's version form the Across The Universe soundtrack.It's not really a great soundtrack, but the cover of Blackbird is wonderful -- sparse, emotional and beautiful.

Sarah Mac has the tenderest voice I've ever heard.
An angel on Earth.

Profound zing.  {#Think}  It reminds me of that one time where the Beatles wrote "Twist and Shout", "Baby It's You" and "Please Mister Postman".  No wait....

One of my favorite songs to play on guitar.
There are a lot of gems on this album
IMHO this song is one of the greatest ever written within its' genre, got to be at least a 9 from Sara, 10 from the Liverpool Lads however........darn fine guit work, what an inspired piece of work the original was.............

I originally thought WTF, "this is a ballsy act to attempt to cover this track." But when I saw the context, it made sense.

I haven't seen this film, but can vouch for Across the Universe. The latter I thought I'd hate, but it was actually very fun and they did a great job with the, uh, visuals.

Oh, wait. I DID see I Am Sam and recall that I hated it. In fact, I can't remember a Sean Penn film that I have liked.
That Paul guy sure knew/knows how to pen a good tune.{#Angel}


Sweet cover...


A real talent.
I like this cover.
Its a beautiful song in its own right, and Sarah has a beautiful voice. Why not? I'd say the result is lovely.
I like Sarah, but not this. Keep to the original.
I like her natural, casual style on this. Just hanging out on the back porch or by the fireplace sharing one of her favorites with friends.
Song....I like. The film really did not make an impression.

I saw Sarah in concert in '04 and of all the performers I've seen she seemed the most, well, real. Humble. Generous. Personable. Her connection with the audience was so great that even though I was in the middle of Staples Center I felt like I was watching her perform in a small venue.

Great story-- now that's something that would never happen in Los Angeles. I see "stars" all the time at LAX. Offering to share a ride would probably get you shot by one of their handlers.

She should sing a duet with Paul. :whistle:
This is one of the few if not the only tolerable cuts on the I Am Sam CD. Very nice. Most Beatles covers are forced and pointless.

Not bad. Prefer the original.
I agree. But all the same, it's better than nothing. I have the original if I want to hear it, anyway.

Tried to listen to it with an open-mind, but in the end, felt disappointed. Saddened. It's a bit like Feliciano covering The Doors gem, Light My Fire, isn't it.
"What would possess an artist to cover a Beatles song? It's an important question to ponder while listening to this album. The Sean Penn Oscar-bait movie couldn't get access to original Beatles' songs, so they went to V2 records and assembled a quickie lineup of seventeen covers from today's top alterna-acts. It's no surprise that the album is a mixed bag to say the least." (click here) Even so, I LOVE Sarah McLachlan and I LOVE her version of this song :D
Kinda like listening to William Shatner sing In da Gadda da Vida.
Great song+great singer=great remake, though original still rules still is the best!

Well, I can't help it. I love this cover. Her voice is so well suited to the simplicity of this song, and I love that she respects the song for that very simplicity.
Not bad. Prefer the original.

If she respected the song, she'd avoid cookie-cutting it for profit. I like Sarah's voice too, but she doesn't know better than to leave well enoguh alone. Siouxie did a great "Dear Prudence" cover precisely because she dropped the respect and breathed new life into a classic.

Ah well, in classical music it's often desirable to stay as close as possible to how the composer meant the composition to be, so in that respect. Even then there's still lots left to be added, like a certain feel, a better (other) way of recording it and indeed the voice. So in that respect. After all, aren't The Beatles classical also, by now? :wink:

Anyone else gets goosebumps simply from the lyrics, regardless of whether it's the original or this cover?
Well done, by which I mean basically indistinguishable from the original. What was the point of this cover?
I generally don't like Beatles covers *, but I'll make an exception with this one. Nicely done. * The only other Beatles cover that was better than the original was Al Jarreau's rendering of "She's Leaving Home," which is simply spectacular. I'd upload it for Bill's consideration, but I don't have it in digital form. It's on an old scratchy LP. Anyone else have it to upload for Bill's consideration?
I love the combination of what was always a lovely song with Sarah McLachlan's beautiful voice. Some covers don't have to be particularly different from the original to be good.
Sacrilege.

That's just bad planning. Thanks for the info, though!
I love this. simple. So what if its been done before. perhaps she liked it thier way. Someone else would have complained if she'd cahnged it.
I love this cover! the voicing is simple, perhaps that's why other listeners have rated it lower.

This is one of those songs in which you cannot improve on the original, and which should probably not be covered. The Swingle Singers have done the best cover of this song I have heard, and it's still nowhere near the original.
wow, there's a pretty wide gap on the opinions of this one. I like it, I like it a lot. It still falls short of a very bad recording (bootleg) of Sting doing this live that I found on a CD that was left in a rental car.. if only I could find that original...

Bad cover... maybe. Not all that exciting anyway, but not that awful. Certainly there have been worse remakes of Beatles tunes. Bad original artists? Wow, not sure what to say about that.

I like this endlessly more then the original. Blackbird is one of the few songs of the Beatles that I actually like, but to hear it like this is goooood. I just ordered her double-CD, but it has not yet arrived at my address. :music:
I tend to agree with those that say this adds nothing new to the original and therefore what is the point of doing it. Two covers of this song that I particularily like are by Rhiannon (with Pat Metheny on guitar) and the other by Dionne Farris.

I don't understand the point of doing covers that sound exactly like the original.
i think Sarah could sing "sugar shack" and i'd like it...i just adore her voice
The best thing here is that the exquisite guitar work of the originally has been well reproduced. Sarahs lovely voice floating over it doesn't hurt anything.
I never get tired of new covers of old Beatle tunes.
