1970: The Beatles release Let It Be, their final single before Paul McCartney announces he is leaving the group. McCartney writes the song after dreaming of his mother during a time of intense professional stress and anxiety. Let It Be goes to #1 on U.S. charts and peaks at #2 in the U.K. Unusual for the tenor of the times, Let It Be will heal you if you permit it.
