Official Music Video

Is the original Beethoven?

John was inspired to write this piece by Beethoven’s “Moonlight".

It is said that one day John heard Yoko Ono playing “Moonlight" on the piano and asked her to play it backwards, adding the lyrics and melody.

Paul and George called it “my favorite song on Abbey Road"

The innovative arrangement features an impressive harpsichord tone, triple layered vocal harmonies with a chorus of John, Paul, and George, and a horn-like sounding Moog synthesizer.
