Dear Prudence (3:55)

Cover of The Beatles (The White Album)

From The Beatles (The White Album) and 34 other releases

“Dear Prudence” was written by John Lennon, and credited to Lennon/McCartney. It was initially performed by The Beatles and is the second track on the 1968 double-disc album The Beatles (also known as “The White Album”). It was recorded in one take at Abbey Road on 28 August 1968.

Lennon wrote “Dear Prudence” to lift the spirits of Prudence Farrow, sister of actress Mia Farrow. John and Prudence met at the meditation retreat of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in Rishikesh India, which she attended with Mia, and Lennon attended with fellow Beatles band mates Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr.

    Having listened to the SatB version countless times, the "The sun is up, the sky is blue..." part just seems too fast when I listen to this. Still magical though.

    I love how the beatles changed through the years to reflect the moment in time. From pretty boys with suits and ties singing love me do too dropin tabs with hippi hair singing I am a walrus. Each was reflected to what was going on at that moment in time in the lives of ordinary people. makes me wonder what would there music and be like today if the fab 4 were still creating music.
