I promise to one day write things here, but for now it will be a sea of boxes (and lists).

Intro with infobox Historical Background Recording (merge mono version section into this one) The Songs (specific song info such as the Lucy picture) Album Cover Reception (perhaps a place for charts and Grammys, as well as release dates?) Track Listing Credits See Also References Notes (lots of things lack citations) External Links (we need more)

I'm not sure where to stick the Billy Shears section or what to do with all the information at the bottom of the article, though a lot of it seems unimportant and probably can be lost.

Let me know what you think. --El Slameron 16:45, 9 July 2006 (UTC)

"A Day in the Life"

Main article: A Day in the Life

The climactic and final track on the LP, the epic "A Day in the Life" was a long piece, comprising several different sections edited together. The diary style and imagery of the verses was drawn from events that affected Lennon at the time.

The first verse refers obliquely to the death of Tara Browne, young heir to the Guinness fortune, whom The Beatles knew socially; he had been recently killed in a car accident, referred to in the line "He blew his mind out in a car; he didn't notice that the lights had changed". The second verse alluded to Lennon's recent role as Sgt. Gripweed in the Richard Lester film How I Won the War, in the line "The English Army had just won the war".

The middle-eight section was a small independently written piece contributed by McCartney and this was to be the last major song on which he and Lennon collaborated.

Although allegations were made by the BBC (who banned the song from airplay) that the song implicitly advocated drug use, both McCartney and Lennon have flatly denied this claim.

The final session for the song, held on the evening of February 10, 1967, was to record the orchestral overdubs with a forty-piece ensemble, conducted by McCartney and drawn from members of the London Symphony Orchestra. The Beatles invited a number of special guests for the occasion including Donovan and members of The Rolling Stones and The Monkees. McCartney and others filmed portions of the evening's proceedings with hand-held colour Super-8 cameras, and this footage can be seen on the video version of The Beatles Anthology.
