It’s placed at number 20 on the list of “The 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time”, made by Rolling Stones magazine and it’s considered to be one of the band’s “most popular and finest ballads”. The single won an Academy Award, in 1971, for “Original Song Score”, as it was part of the documentary “Let It Be”.

“Let It be” was released on March 6th, 1970 and it’s a song from the epic British band, The Beatles. It was recorded at the Apple Studio and EMI Studios, throughout the period of 1969-1970. The song was written by Paul McCartney and John Lennon and it stands as the last single to have been produced by the artists, as a band. It is part of their album with the same name.
McCartney’s inspiration for the song came from a dream he had about his mother, during the tense recording of their album, “The Beatles”. According to the artist, his mother told him: “It will be alright. Just let it be.” The band rehearsed the song at the Twickenham Film Studios.
The song was produced by George Martin and has a duration of 3:50 minutes.
