Let It Be: The Beatles Break-Up Hit That Became a Zen Mantra

The Fab Four had many, many hits, but for some reason, Let It Be has become the ultimate tattooed lyric.

And in my hour of darkness

Hitting number one on the UK Billboard, and number six in the US, Let It Be was a typical Paul song. The fact that is was a primarily McCartney composition speaks to the fact that the boys were on the breaks, and John Lennon confirmed as such in an interview with Playboy in 1980, “That's Paul. What can you say? Nothing to do with the Beatles. It could've been Wings. I don't know what he's thinking when he writes ‘Let It Be.’ I think it was inspired by ‘Bridge over Troubled Waters.’ That's my feeling, although I have nothing to go on.”
