The Beatles Songs: Cry Baby Cry

By December 29, 2012

Follow me on:

A toy commercial that backed into "Across the Universe" and then backed away, John's "White Album" ballad "Cry Baby Cry" was never particularly well liked by its creator -- but somehow, this lone Sgt. Pepper outtake became an enigmatic portrait of a decade in decay... and a fitting intro to John's vision of apocalypse. Read all about the history and recording of "Cry Baby Cry" in my latest Beatles fact sheet.

Possibly wouldn’t make the cut if the album was a single album but far from the worst song on the White album
