Beatlette;3188324 said:"Her Majesty" was originally recorded as part of the medley, in between "Mean Mr. Mustard" and "Polythene Pam". (EDIT: If you're playing on the Wii, notice that the last chord of "Mean Mr. Mustard" is the first chord of "Her Majesty".) At some point, the group decided to cut the song (which is why Mr. Mustard's sister's name was changed to Pam, to make the transition make more sense). If I remember correctly, Paul came in at some point during the final editing and stuck the track onto the end of the album. Why? I don't know. Maybe it ruins the cathartic ending to the album, but it reminds me of the random sounds that are at the end of the "Sgt. Pepper" album, so it kind of makes sense for a Beatles album.As for playing the song on Rock Band, because Wii users like myself cannot play the full medley, we can only play "Her Majesty" as a separate track, which is incredibly stupid. On the other hand, it's the easiest 100% I've ever scored on the bass.You are so right! =)
CM_Drunk;3189207 said:From what I had read, either the producer or one of the assitants held on to the recording after it was originally cut, cause he never threw away anything. It was then attached to the end of the medley and sent out for mixing, without any of their knowledge (supposedly).Once it was all mixed, they all like how it had ended the song.Now, if thats wildly inaccurate let me know...but I think I remembered that right, at least according to that article. Obviously, im no Beatles expert, and this game has turned me from a casual fan into them now being my current focus as far as music goes. I actually just bought the Anthology DVD set, so once I can get through all of it Ill be a bit better informed
Maccafan82;3193794 said:Fitting to me because, for those who know the history of the Beatles, he was the only one who wanted to keep going. Everyone else wanted out. Paul didn't break up the Beatles, the others did. He just realized it was over and ended his misery by announcing it (he was in a deep depression over the break-up and Linda told him he had to move on, thus the press release).
