George Harrison’s Tune Is the More Appropriate One

Tweet [1]

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 [2],” Aug. 2).

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