The Beatles In Studio

Widely regarded as “one of the most ambitious, influential, and groundbreaking works in pop music history”, The Beatles’ ‘A Day In The Life’ is a musical masterpiece if there ever was one and now we get to hear it done in-studio! Unlike the version we’ve all come to know and love, this rendition  seems a little stripped down and has a few extras, like the characteristic banter between John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

It’s so delightfully unfinished that you can hear where the band would later go back and fill in places and edit others, giving us a fantastic glimpse into the collective genius that was The Beatles.

Fun Fact: Rock band ELO paid homage to ‘A Day In The Life’ with their hit song, ‘Mr. Blue Sky’.

Ever the perfectionist, we know that John would have hated for us to have heard what would become one of his greatest masterpieces in such a raw state, but by far this is definitely one of our favorite looks into what it took for a band of that magnitude to record such a classic!

+ A Day In The Life lyrics +

I read the news today oh boy
About a lucky man who made the grade
And though the news was rather sad
Well I just had to laugh
I saw the photograph
He blew his mind out in a car
He didn’t notice that the lights had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared
They’d seen his face before
Nobody was really sure
If he was from the House of Lords
I saw a film today oh boy
The English Army had just won the war
A crowd of people turned away
But I just had to look
Having read the book
I’d love to turn you on

Woke up, fell out of bed
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up I noticed I was late
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream

I read the news today oh boy
Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire
And though the holes were rather small
They had to count them all
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall
I’d love to turn you on
