"I read the news today, oh boy..."

The awesome finale to the classic Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album from 1967, this was a mash up of Lennon’s world-weary verses based on newspaper reports, coupled with McCartney’s upbeat middle section. 

The two separate parts were linked by a “musical orgasm”, supervised by producer George Martin, who employed a 40-piece orchestra and told each and every member to work their way from their instrument’s lowest note to its highest over the course of 24 bars. 

The Beatles’ masterpiece.
