“The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill” is a song by The Beatles from the 1968 double album The Beatles (also known as The White Album).
The song opens with a flamenco guitar solo (taken from a seldom-heard Mellotron bank of Spanish guitar runs; on some CD reissues, this solo closes the previous track, “Wild Honey Pie”), followed by the chorus, sung by all four Beatles, Ringo’s then-wife Maureen, and Yoko Ono (providing the only female lead vocal on a Beatles recording, for a single line). John Lennon, who wrote the song, is the primary lead singer. Like the majority of songs written by either Lennon or Paul McCartney it is credited to Lennon/McCartney.The song was recorded at Abbey Road on 8 October 1968 and was completed including all overdubs in this one session. The Beatles also started and completed the Lennon-composed ‘I’m So Tired’ during the same recording session.
