Would "Let 'em In", by Paul McCartney & Wings be considered a song with whistle? Not sure if it's whistling or just synthesizer music going on...

Blackbird by the Beatles.



There's whistling in Blackbird? Or are you referring to the bird singing in the background?



It's been a long time since I've heard the song but for some reason I remember it as being a person whistling at the end.

It was hands on the frets of the guitar that made that sound.
