Beatle Fact Friday

Its been a long, long, long week, so this one is going to be short.

At the end of George Harrison's love song "Long long long", a rattling sound can be heard. According to Harrison's autobiography, I Me Mine, this sound was produced by a glass bottle of Blue Nun wine that was sitting on a speaker. Supposedly, when Paul played a certain note on the organ, the bottle rattled making the sound. To compliment the rattling, Ringo played a fast drum roll on the snare. This "mistake" ultimately made it into the final recording.

Sometimes mistakes can be beautiful things.
