SystemSCSnake;3352672 said:Yes I do agree, The White Album has a dark tone with songs like, Happiness is a Warm Gun, Helter Skelter, Revolution 9, Bungalow Bill, etc.However this was a time when they were really under tension, and beginning to leave the band, with a lot of different emotions during this album, it's a real mash of different feelings.

jimmerhoft;3356385 said:I agree with everything else you said, but Savoy Truffle is actually George poking fun at Eric Clapton and his sweet tooth."'Savoy Truffle' on The White Album was written for Eric (Clapton). He's got this real sweet tooth and he'd just had his mouth worked on. His dentist said he was through with candy. So as a tribute I wrote, 'You'll have to have them all pulled out after the Savoy Truffle.' The truffle was some kind of sweet, just like all the rest-- cream tangerine, ginger sling-- just candy, to tease Eric." - 1977
