The Beatles Song of the Day is Savoy Truffle. Savoy Truffle appears on side 4 of The Beatles White Album. It is the fourth and final song on the album written by George Harrison. George was inspired to write the song from hanging out with Eric Clapton who had a lot of cavities and needed a lot of dental work . Clapton was eating a lot of chocolates and always seemed to have a toothache. George said that Eric was over at his house and there was a box of Good News chocolates sitting out on the table and he wrote the songs from the names inside the lid. Beatles publicist Derek Taylor gets an assist in the helping of the song- when George was stuck for something to sing in the middle eight- Derek mentioned the title of a film by his friend Alan Pariser- You Are What You Eat.  George Harrison: double-tracked vocal, lead guitar: Paul McCartney: bass: Ringo Starr: drums, tambourine: Chris Thomas: organ, electric piano: Art Ellefson, Danny Moss, Derek Collins: tenor saxes: Ronnie Ross, Harry Klein, Bernard George:baritone saxes: Produced by George Martin.

“Savoy Truffle”

Creme tangerine and montelimar
A ginger sling with a pineapple heart
A coffee dessert, yes, you know it’s good news
But you’ll have to have them all pulled out
After the Savoy truffleCool cherry cream, nice apple tart
I feel your taste all the time we’re apart
Coconut fudge really blows down those blues
But you’ll have to have them all pulled out
After the Savoy truffleYou might not feel it now
But when the pain cuts through
You’re going to know and how
The sweat is going to fill your head
When it becomes too much
You’ll shout aloud

[Instrumental/Solo]

But you’ll have to have them all pulled out
After the Savoy truffle

You know that what you eat you are
But what is sweet now turns so sour
We all know obla-dibla-da
But can you show me where you are?

Creme tangerine and montelimar
A ginger sling with a pineapple heart
A coffee dessert, yes, you know it’s good news
But you’ll have to have them all pulled out
After the Savoy truffle

Yes you’ll have to have them all pulled out
After the Savoy truffle
