By April 27, 2013

Follow me on:

For all their storied knowledge of pop and rock music, the Beatles usually didn't feature classical music as much more than chamber-pop window dressing. But this inscrutable Abbey Road standout takes its inspiration from Beethoven, adds a new instrument almost never heard before in rock, and, just to top it off, reinvents rock harmony for the stereo age. Read all about the history and recording of "Because" in my latest Beatles fact sheet.
