Just double-checked for you, SG.

You are indeed right, Lewisohn notes in Recording Sessions that this was mixed with the tape running at 51 cycles per second.

*does a dance* 

YAY! beatlemaniacs_02_gif

How is 51 cycles per second relative to normal recording, if you please?

Assuming they recorded at normal speed, and there are no indications they didn't (I've been through all Lewisohn's mentions of the song), it is actually a very slight difference as normal recording speed was 50 cycles per second. So, as you can see, it is sped up - but barely.

This is a song I never quite 'got' the appeal of... until I learnt it. After that I got it. 

If you'd asked me, a few years ago, how I liked Here Comes The Sun , I'd have shrugged and said, 'It's all right.'* a-hard-days-night-paul-7 But now, I concur with the majority opinion that this is one of the greatest songs ever writted. a-hard-days-night-george-4

And if anyone ever tries to tell me it's simplistic, I will cheerfully spit upon their brow. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

A little off topic, but so wasn’t Penny Lane also sped up a bit, so that Macca would sound a little more youthful???

 I think that was When I'm 64 that was sped up.

I also have a huge softspot for this one since it was my "firs beatle song"  It just never fails to make me happyahdn_ringo_09

I totally empathise, PIPL, but surprisingly enough, for the longest time I could never quite understand why the song was so popular... I just didn't see what others saw in it. Then I learnt it on the guitar, and all of a sudden I really appreciated it-- not just George's crisp and shining guitar playing, but all of it-- music, lyrics, production, everything.  heartheartheartheart

It's not new, @QuarryMan. It happened many times back in the '80s.

Big videos were often give late night time slots for their UK TV premiere, most often on Channel 4 in association the music programme The Tube.

I can remember it happening with Michael Jackson's Thriller, Madonna's Like a Virgin, and Frankie Goes to Hollywood's Two Tribes. And these would usually be preceded during the week beforehand by 20-30 second ads offering glimpses of the video, ending with taglines like "IT'S COMING! FRIDAY NIGHT 11:55".

It was an often used trick back in the days of terrestrial TV during the early days of video and satellite TV.

I liked it, though it's a little recurrent to see objects flying around in a Beatles's video... i know we can not have them together again but...

Anyway the video was ok, and the new mix is very cool.

The new mix is nice. The video I have mixed feelings about -- some of it I felt was a bit 'who thought that was a good idea?' (like the floaty photos), while other parts (the shadows in Abbey Road Studios,the footage of George at the end) was heartstring-pulling perfection. The animation was okay. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

I was listening to a podcast talking about the Cream song "Badge" (written by Eric Clapton and George Harrison ), and I realized that song may predate "Here Comes The Sun ".  I've always thought that the bridge in Badge was most similar to the middle part of Here Comes The Sun (the guitar behind the "Sun, sun, sun, here it comes" part). 

A lot of people have supposed that George wrote that bridge part in Badge because it sounds like him.  Probably because of the bit in Here Comes The Sun , although I've also heard it compared to the "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, all good children go to heaven" part of "You Never Give Me Your Money ".  But I've also heard people say that George didn't write the bridge in Badge, that it was actually Clapton, so who knows?

I had always figured that George had a hand in writing that bridge in Badge, but now I wonder if Clapton wrote it, and George was influenced by that to put the similar bit in Here Come the Sun?  The latter song was written in Clapton's garden, remember.

By the way, speaking of Badge, they said that Ringo actually contributed the line "I told you about the swans, that they live in the park".

Badge definitely predates Here Comes The Sun , @forn; Badge was recorded in October 1968 while Here Comes The Sun  was written in early 1969.

Wow, that is a powerful video. A beautiful song with a haunting quality to it. The drum kit and guitars standing silent, being left there for 50 odd years as the band is no more. The photos flying around just like the Starting Over music video with John. Very nicely done.

I'm not surprised that this is their most popular song on Spotify. It currently has 372 million plays there.
