Eleanor Rigby (Lennon​/​McCartney)

about

I've always been a huge fan of The Beatles - the five of them (including George Martin RIP) brought popular music into art injecting orchestral bits, extremely smart arrangements, clever thoughtful lyrics and melodies together into enduring works of genius. Eleanor Rigby was one of those in which the power of the ostinato power chords on the string section implied a heavier piece than it really was. I didn't want to do a full on reproduction of the original piece, so I made it into a heavier rock song with a latin rhythm pattern during the chorus section to make it really deviate from the original.

With Beatles songs no matter how far you try to take the material, it really doesn't get away at all from the original - that's the strength of Lennon and McCartney's writing, and George Martin's arrangements.

lyrics

Ah look at all the lonely people....
