During the event everyone except Paul McCartney dropped acid; when George Harrison experienced disturbing hallucinations, Fonda attempted to soothe Harrison. According to the Beatles Bible website, Fonda told Harrison about how he had almost died at ten years old after accidentally shooting himself in the stomach. Who put all that shit She Said She Said - The Beatles - Revolver your head? I was at his house one day—this is the mid-Sixties—and he was struggling with some tunes.
Lennon continually experimented with the tune, as his home demos demonstrate. Yeah, You Gotta Feel It - Various - The Rock N Roll Super Show Live II. That was pure.
That was what I meant all right. And then I wanted a middle-eight. Less than a year later, the Beatles were wrapping up recording sessions for Revolver when they realized they were one song short for the final track lineup.
The Beatles rehearsed the song an astounding 25 times, then laid down the basic rhythm track in three takes. During the intense session, McCartney argued with other band members, and walked out of the studio. After this task was completed, Harrison contributed his lead guitar and Lennon played an organ part. Three mono mixes were made, but they were all discarded in favor of another mix created the next day.
The guitars are great on it. It was an acidy song. The tempo and rhythm patterns change frequently, a challenge Ringo Starr rises to meet admirably. Lyrically, Lennon illustrates how his writing skills had developed in a short time. His willingness to shatter traditional notions of song structure and lyrical themes helped set the Beatles apart from other groups, paving the way for future artists to veer from manufactured material and further test the boundaries of the rock and pop genres.
