Watch this father and son do a cover of the classic 1969 Beatles love song "Don't Let Me down" by John Lennon, recorded on 28 January and released on the B-side of the single "Get Back" on 11 April, 1969.
Christian Diego Mello sings with his son Diogo Mello, "only one year and 11 months old." The little boy sings with enthusiasm in spite of his innocence of the significance of the love song to the original composer.
The father and son pair are simply awesome.
"Don't Let Me Down," written by John Lennon, was a love song to Yoko Ono described by Paul McCartney as a "genuine plea."
McCartney recalling the circumstances said: "It was a very tense period: John was with Yoko and had escalated to heroin and all the accompanying paranoias and he was putting himself out on a limb. I think that as much as it excited and amused him, and the same time it secretly terrified him. So Don't Let Me Down was a genuine plea... It was saying to Yoko, 'I'm really stepping out of line on this one. I'm really letting my vulnerability be seen, so you must not let me down.' I think it was a genuine cry for help. It was a good song."
Lennon's vocal performance debuts the "screams" that would feature in subsequent works. Each verse of "Don't Let Me Down" commences with Lennon singing a capella and his performance progressing into "scream vocalese."
Lennon reportedly commented: "When it gets down to it, when you're drowning, you don't say, 'I would be incredibly pleased if someone would have the foresight to notice me drowning and come and help me,' you just scream."
The song has been described as one of the Beatles' most powerful love songs.
