Best Beatles’ Song Debate Gets Political

Politicians pick their favourite Beatles' track

Trending Now

‘Strawberry Fields’, ‘All My Loving’ and ‘The Long and Winding Road’ have been nominated as the best Beatles‘ songs by British political leaders.

In an interview with the Liverpool Daily Post, Gordon Brown picked ‘All My Loving’: “This was my early favourite because it was the first I learnt to play on the piano when my parents sent me for lessons when I was young.”

Leader of the Conservatives David Cameron, a “McCartney fan”, favoured ‘The Long and Winding Road’. “It has a wonderful melody and emotion and pretty much sums up the life of the Leader of the Opposition.”

Nick Clegg chose the ‘A Day in the Life’, which “still sounds innovative and radical”.

Alistair Darling, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, reminisced on the psychedelic classic ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’. “It reminds me of the 1960s at their best. In the words and music they are describing real life, unlike so many other songs of that time.”

The mind boggles.
