The Beatles Song of the Day is Long, Long, Long. Long, Long, Long is the final song on side 3- and it was written by George Harrison while The Beatles were in India with the Maharishi. The ‘you’ that George is addressing is God. George was inspired to write this by Dylan’s “Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands.”- it is the calmest song on the album and was perfectly placed right after Helter Skelter. Author Ian MacDonald in his book on The Beatles music “Revolution In The Head”- calls the song George’s finest moment on the album.

“Long, Long, Long”
How could I ever have lost you
When I loved youIt took a long long long time
Now I’m so happy I found you
How I love youSo many tears I was searching
So many tears I was wasting, oh oh
Now I can see you, be you
How can I ever misplace you
How I want you
Oh I love you
You know that I need you
Ooh I love you
