George Harrison’s Tune Is the More Appropriate One

Here’s a letter that I just sent to the New York Daily News:

As my long-suffering friends and relatives will attest, I’ve been obsessed with Beatles music ever since, as a five-year-old child, I saw the Fab Four’s first television appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show.  So I jumped at the opportunity to see Paul McCartney in concert last night in Washington.  And what a wonderful concert it was!  But I could have done without his dedication to Michelle Obama of the Beatles’ song “Michelle” (“Paul McCartney dedicates love song ‘Michelle’ to Michelle Obama during Washington D.C. concert,” Aug. 2).

Far more appropriate, and seemly, would have been a dedication by McCartney to Barack Obama of the Beatles’ song “Taxman.”
