This Beatles song is based on a Liverpool street and its surrounding area, called Penny Lane. Paul McCartney creates small, vivid vignettes of the many people who are living everyday life in and around Penny Lane. It’s full of nostalgia and fond memories.
This song is great for a two-part treble choir. It’s light and fun, there is even a section where the students can imitate a trumpet. Have them try to imitate the sound or put a fist over their mouth and sing on [du].
