during the 60‘s a University Laboratory of east Berlin was used to produce LSD. The trips got famous as strawberries. 

„Strawberry’s feels forever„

The story comes from my father whu had a good trip there during that time.

I’ve loved all the versions of this song, especially the released master, but I’m also fond of the Anthology 2 version of Take 7 with the edit piece of Ringo’s drum track. It really demonstrates quite effectively how good Ringo is. Not to mention how conspiracists are very thoroughly debunked with the extremely audible “cranberry sauce” being said twice, then hearing John say, in a funny voice, “All right, calm down, Ringo!”

Meanwhile, did you know that Jimmy Iovine purchased the Mellotron that John played on this song? He then sold it to Trent Reznor, who used it on the end of the Nine Inch Nails song “Closer.”

(Not for the faint of heart, naturally!)

John is supposed to have composed SFF in 1966. So then, what is this from 1964?

John had a vague tune he liked in 1964, developed it and wrote the words in 1966. He may have been playing about with it throughout the interim. It’s not dissimilar to  the process he took with songs during his househusband years which are heavily bootlegged.
