Paul McCartney — “Love In the Open Air”, John Lennon — “Child of Nature”, The Idle Race — “Days of Broken Arrows”: Brace for the Obscure (60’s rock)! — August 7, 2021

28) Paul McCartney, “Love In the Open Air”

The lovely theme song for The Family Way, a ’66 UK comedy-drama about newlyweds. Paul and George (Martin) wrote the film’s score with time on their hands after the Beatles stopped touring and John went off to film How I Won the War.  

29) John Lennon, “Child of Nature”

Of course it sounds familiar — think “Jealous Guy” on the Imagine album, but John actually wrote the music on the Beatles’s trek to India.

30) The Idle Race, “Days of Broken Arrows”

This May ’69 single flopped. Jeff Lynne went on to dominate the 70’s.
