Beatles Song of the Week – Happiness is a Warm Gun

As a successor to “A Day in the Life” with its two, two, two songs in one, “Happiness is a Warm Gun” ups the ante and offers segments of four different songs all within 2 minutes and 44 seconds.

1) She’s not a girl who misses much

2)I need a fix

3) Mother Superior jumped the gun

4) Happiness is a warm gun

The end result is a remarkable achievement in the history of The Beatles.  The song moves seamlessly between beauty and gritty.  Tension builds, and is released in a mock “doo-wop” ending.  It remains one of the coolest songs they ever did.

-Disclaimer: You may need to click through to YouTube. You may not.  It depends on how EMI is feeling.
