The Beatles: Baby you're a rich man (beginning only)
Deconstructing Baby You’re A Rich Man (Isolated Tracks)
"Baby, You're a Rich Man" is a song by the English rock band the Beatles that was released in July 1967 as the B-side of their "All You Need Is Love" single. It originated from an unfinished song by John Lennon, titled "One of the Beautiful People", to which Paul McCartney added a chorus. The song was recorded and mixed at Olympic Sound Studios in London, making it the first of the Beatles' EMI recordings to be entirely created outside EMI Studios. The track features a monophonic keyboard instrument known as a clavioline, which Lennon played on its oboe setting, creating a sound that suggests an Indian shehnai. The lyrics address the "beautiful people" of the 1960s hippie movement. The song has also invited interpretation as a message to the Beatles' manager, Brian Epstein, and alternatively as a comment on fame.
