The Beatles - "Elanor Rigby" - Song of the Day - (3/21/14)

"Eleanor Rigby" is a song by the Beatles, released on the 1966 album Revolver and as a 45 rpm single. The song was written primarily by Paul McCartney and is credited to the Lennon–McCartney duo.

The song continued the transformation of the Beatles from a mainly pop-orientated act to a more experimental, studio-based band. With a double string quartet arrangement by George Martin and striking lyrics about loneliness, "Eleanor Rigby" broke sharply with popular music conventions, both musically and lyrically.
