A Snap A Set A Song - Feathers

I'm joining in with the theme of Feathers over at A Snap, A Set and A Song.
My interpretation is Blackbird, totally inspired by the song of the same name.

A Snap

I found this amazing art by Anne-Julie Aubry when I googled 'blackbird' images. This picture was so gorgeous, I instantly added The Nebulous Kingdom to my favourite etsy shop list!

A Song
I adore, adore, adore this song, which I first really got to know when listening to the brilliant Beatlesque soundtrack of I am Sam. I so love Sarah McLachlan's voice!

There is also a wonderful Glee version of this song, which doesn't have a video, but I'd love you to hear the harmonies of the Warblers - stunning! In this episode, Kurt's bird Pavarotti dies, and he asks his friends if they will sing Blackbird with him. I listened to both versions of the song about twenty times while preparing this post.

    Your set is so beautiful, I love everything.
    I'd never thought about that song being Beatlesque, but it really is.

    Thanks for linking.
