Day 30 - Your favorite song at this time last year Lost Inside Of You - My American Heart
Have you ever been lost before Where your heart can’t take it anymore? It’s living under your skin And you don’t know where you have been But you want it so bad (I want you) So bad It hurts to know that You can’t have my touch You think that you’ve had enough
I love this song. I love how John Lennon, in the end, says “…I think, at first, people will get a bit suspicious”
A 41 piece orchestra played on this. The musicians were told to attend the session dressed formally. When they got there, they were presented with party novelties (false noses, party hats, gorilla-paw glove) to wear, which made it clear this was not going to be a typical session. The orchestra was conducted by Paul McCartney, who told them to start with the lowest note of their instruments and gradually play to the highest.
This was recorded in 3 sessions: First the basic track, then the orchestra, then the last note was dubbed in.
This being the last song on the album, The Beatles found an interesting way to close it out. After the final note, Lennon had producer George Martin dub in a high pitched tone, which most humans can’t hear, but drives dogs crazy. This was followed by a loop of incomprehensible studio noise, along with Paul McCartney saying “Never could see any other way,” spliced together. It was put there so vinyl copies would play this continuously in the run-out groove, sounding like something went horribly wrong with the record. Kids, ask your parents about vinyl.
