She Said She Said (2:33)

Cover of Revolver

From Revolver and 13 other releases

“She Said She Said” is a song by The Beatles from their 1966 album Revolver, recorded in June of that year.
John Lennon was the primary writer of “She Said She Said,” which was about one of his first LSD trips.

The song was the final track recorded during the Revolver sessions, and was hastily added when the album lineup was found to be a song short. It took nine hours to rehearse and record the entire song, complete with overdubs. After the recording of the song, The Beatles producer George Martin is reported to have said: “All right, boys, I’m just going for a lie-down.”

Paul McCartney’s degree of participation in the song remains unclear. McCartney recalls that the band had an argument before the track was recorded, with McCartney walking out and thus not participating in the recording and McCartney does not contribute a vocal to the song.

This song is considered to be the only* Beatles song which Paul McCartney did not participate in any part of the recording process. George Harrison played the bass in this song.

*: Side two of Yellow Submarine soundtrack album consists of original score for the movie composed and arranged by producer George Martin but was credited to The Beatles.
