Written by Paul McCartney in 1968, “Lady Madonna” was McCartney’s attempt to write a bluesy, Fats Domino style song, which Fats Domino later covered in the same year. A raucous, piano-led tune, “Lady Madonna” originally started off, lyrically, about the Virgin Mary, mostly inspired by the Catholic population of Liverpool, but later evolved into one about a working class woman facing a problem every day of the week. Every day except for Sunday.
