The Beatles: Musical Transcendentalists
Transcript of The Beatles: Musical Transcendentalists
“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.” What are some of the transcendentalists’ ideas? Freedom, Individuality, Global human connectivity, and maybe even stop and smell the roses.
