    "Lady Madonna" is a song by the Beatles, written by Paul McCartney in 1968 and credited to Lennon–McCartney. "Lady Madonna" topped the UK Singles Chart for two weeks,  although on the national chart compiled by Melody Maker it peaked at number 2.  It was the first single by the Beatles not to make number 1 on Melody Maker's chart since the band's 1962 debut, "Love Me Do".  In America, "Lady Madonna" peaked at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the first Beatles single not to top that chart since "Eleanor Rigby" in 1966. Author Ian MacDonald considers this relative lack of success to be significant, describing the song as "a moderately entertaining let-down after the psychedelic heights of early 1967".  Writing in 1988, Beatles historian Mark Lewisohn described "Lady Madonna" as a "terrific" single that was "curiously overlooked today by those analysing the group's output".
