What the Beatles said about “I Want You (Shes So Heavy)”

GEORGE 1969: “It is very heavy. John plays lead guitar and sings, and it’s basically just an old blues riff he’s doing, but again, it’s a very original John-type song as well… It’s a very good chord sequence he used on this particular one.”

JOHN 1969: “We used a Moog synthesizer on the end. That machine can do all sounds and all ranges of sound.”

JOHN 1971: “Simplicity is evident in ‘She So Heavy.’ In fact a reviewer wrote: ‘He seems to have lost his talent for lyrics, it’s so simple and boring.’ When it gets down to it– when you’re drowning, you don’t say ‘I would be incredibly pleased if someone would have the foresight to notice me drowning and come and help me,’ you just scream.”

JOHN 1980: “That’s me, about Yoko.”
