Song of the Day: The Beatles – “Glass Onion”

On this day in 1968, The Beatles began recording what would come to be known as The White Album. Obviously it’s hard to pick just one (or five) songs off this legendary album, but we’ll go with this catchy rocker, which is the third song off the album. One of the most interesting aspects of the song was this verse that was subject to much interpretation: “I told you about the walrus and me, man/You know that we’re as close as can be, man/Well here’s another clue for you all/The walrus was Paul” but in the end, John Lennon admitted he threw in the part about Paul just to mess with people while the “Paul Is Dead” rumors/conspiracy theory was floating around. “I threw the line in—’the Walrus was Paul’—just to confuse everybody a bit more,” Lennon said. “It could have been ‘The fox terrier is Paul.’ I mean, it’s just a bit of poetry.”
