PAUL 1969: 'I like John's 'Because' on the second side.
To say, 'Because the world is round it turns me on' is great.
And 'Because the wind is high it blows my mind''GEORGE 1969: 'I think my favorite one on the album is 'Because.' The lyrics are uncomplicated… but the harmony was actually pretty difficult to sing.
I think it's one of those tunes that will definitely impress most people.'JOHN 1980: 'I was lying on the sofa in our house, listening to Yoko play Beethoven's 'Moonlight Sonata' on the piano.
Suddenly, I said, 'Can you play those chords backward?' She did, and I wrote 'Because' around them.
The song sounds like 'Moonlight Sonata,' too.
The lyrics are clear, no bullshit, no imagery, no obscure references.'
Because the world is round it turns me on
Because the world is round...aaaaaahhhhhhBecause the wind is high it blows my mind
Because the wind is high...aaaaaaaahhhhLove is old, love is new
Love is all, love is youBecause the sky is blue, it makes me cry
Because the sky is blue...aaaaaaaahhhhAaaaahhhhhhhhhh...
