Blackbirds Song/Melody on My Mind


The are two versions of Blackbirds that I really cherish - the original one song by the Beatles and then Trio Rococo's cover version, that still sends chills down my spine everytime I hear it. The latter I heard at the Danish national football stadium, Parken, packed with people at an Kulturby96 event in Copenhagen, Denmark - and will never forget hearing it there... and it made a huge impression of most of us there.
 
Now, I do know that the freebie bird from A Day For Daisies is not a blackbird, but the song lured me into coloring the bird black/white - and then I thought sympathy card.... then the CCEE1329 challenge: Sing, Sing a Song.

Here is what I came up with:


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

Black bird 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

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

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

Black bird 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
you were only waiting for this moment to be free
you were only waiting for this moment to be free

The Beatles

Very pretty little "blackbird". I love reading your blog Anne. I haven't seen the named coke bottles around for a while I think they are now years, you know 1963 etc. I don't think that there would be a single crafter of any sort that doesn't have UFO's. I know I have plenty. Oh and I love the quilted cow. xo

Sorry I'm late in commenting. What a wonderful card for the CCEE Sing a Song challenge. I love that song too - I hadn't heard it for years till I looked it up some time last year after taking a photo of a blackbird singing. Now I'll have to find it again - after work.
This will make a really lovely sympathy card, I love your bird image.
