i love martha my dear but damn it's about a f*ckin dog? ;p lol 2 much spare time for mister mccartney lol


Martha My Dear is not about a dog - there are no references in the song to a dog. He simply got the name for the song from his dog.

i feel like the person who really got f*cked in the end was george because his writing skills were beginning to peak.

Yes, George's confidence and skills as both a songwriter and guitarist were at it's peak in 1969. Paul apparently said to John in 1969 something like "This year George's songs are at least as good as ours." So true with stunning compositions like Something and Here Comes The Sun. I guess one good thing came out of George being dominated by Lennon/McCartney and that's his huge backlog of material resulted in the ambitious 3 record All Things Must Pass, widely praised as perhaps the very best solo album by a Beatle.
:] if not better, and on let it be his compositions for you blue/i me mine is horrid imo :/

If you haven't listened to George's All Things Must Pass, YOU HAVE TO. You'll understand why he gave those two songs to Let It Be (although I Me Mine is kinda cool, if nothing but a fragment). It's the best Beatles solo album. John and Paul's efforts don't come near, really.

Not only because it contains high quality songs but it's also produced by Phil Spector who also produced John's first two solo albums.

Lennon had said that the song was about him and Yoko but McCartney believed it was about Lennon's heroin use.

I've seen interviews with Lennon, where he claims the songs is about other people reaction to his relationship with Yoko. Which is strange, as the song was written in India, before John and Yoko even became a couple.

The "monkey" part might be a sly drug reference, but the majority of the song is supposedly about the Maharishi.

George Harrison had stated that the first part of the song's title was based on a quote from the Maharishi.

It's a very good album.  It's also a very cool album with an extra record side of weird stuff, can't even remember but I think it was a long Jam with Clapton or something to that effect.  Really cool album to own because there's just so much interesting material there.  You also get to hear George do things how he wanted, and better understand what a fantastic guitarist he was.

if it wasn't for paul mccartney then they would've broke up before sgt. pepper

I agree and the irony is that Paul was actually the one who initiated court proceedings to have The Beatles legally disolved.
