Your Mother Should Know (3:01)

Cover of Magical Mystery Tour

From Magical Mystery Tour and 19 other releases

“Your Mother Should Know” is a song by The Beatles from their 1967 record Magical Mystery Tour, released in the U.S. as an LP on 27 November 1967 and in the UK as a double-EP on 8 December 1967. It was written by Paul McCartney (credited to Lennon/McCartney). McCartney said he wrote it as a production number for the movie Magical Mystery Tour, supporting an old-fashioned dance segment that starts with the Beatles coming down a grand staircase in white tuxedoes. After they descend, boy scouts, RAF cadets and other groups march through. John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr are wearing red carnations, while McCartney’s is black. The carnation difference contributed to the “Paul is dead” controversy.
