The Beatles -- ‘Because’

Because (2.46)

John Lennon: Lead vocal, lead guitar; Paul McCartney: Lead vocal, bass guitar; George Harrison: Lead vocal, moog synthesiser; Electric harpsichord: George Martin

John was inspired to write this after Yoko played him Beethoven’s ‘Piano Sonata No. 14’ on the piano.

John asked her if she could play it back to front, which, of course, being clever, she could. And he later claimed that the melody is just Beethoven played backwards. But if you have a careful listen then you’ll discover that it’s more-or-less the same song played forwards – just a straight lift.
