Helter Skelter: what is that clip of sound?

Whilst listening to the Rock Band files of Helter Skelter, I noticed a small burst of non-sequeteur piano and lead just before the 'I've got blisters on my fingers'.

Where is it flown in from?

Flown in? I've always just assumed they played it themselves, during the same overdub session on which they added the trumpet and saxophone.

I like black music, disco music. I like the disco music that's out now - John Lennon, 1975

I mean 'flown i n' from another Beatles session or from some absent minded noodling between takes.

Could it be a sample of Ringo's hot water bottle collection? It was his big thing in '68.

What is that supposed to mean? Did Ringo seriously collect hot water bottles? I've never heard that one. a-hard-days-night-ringo-12a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

No, it's just a "non-sequeteur". Or in other words, it's just Yhaal House being silly (as his posting history so far will demonstrate.)
