Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey. It won't hurt you, I promise! As author Tim Riley states in his book “Tell Me Why,” ending this large work of art with “Revolution 9” would undoubtedly be a mistake. Or when he heard “Happiness Is A Warm Gun,” “Helter Skelter” and then “Revolution 9”? Also, between 2004 and 2006, George Martin and his son Giles returned to these same master tapes to include segments of “Good Night” into tracks used for the album “Love,” which was used as the soundtrack to the Cirque du Soleil show of the same name. John Lennon wrote the song as a lullaby for his five-year-old son Julian. What then follows is a four measure instrumental section composed by George Martin that include ascending stair-step melody lines that differentiate this section with anything else heard in the song. Now don't ask me why. The first two measures, however, play this melody line in a somewhat strident fashion, while the second set of measures repeat this melody line in an extremely quiet tone as if to put a child to sleep in his bassinet. The structure for "Good Night" is quite simple, as a good lullaby should be, namely 'verse/ refrain/ verse/ refrain/ instrumental/ verse/ refrain' (or ababcab) with an appropriate introduction and conclusion thrown in. He's got a lot of soul, John has!” SKU: MN0085246 Interestingly, his performance on track two was recorded at half-speed so that when it was played back at normal speed it was heard an octave higher.

Since this song was not included among the various demos that John recorded on May 28th and 29th, 1968 at George's home in Esher, Surrey, it can easily be assumed that “Good Night” wasn't written until sometime in June of that year.

All in all, between the orchestra and the singers, it took twelve takes to get the performance that was used on the finished recording, 'take 34' being the keeper. The backing vocalists, however, sing the entire verse with Ringo this time around as the instrumentalists weave differently and more dramatically than before, the results sounding eerily like something from an animated Walt Disney movie. By 11:50 pm, these singers completed their duties to George Martin's satisfaction and they were then free to leave for the evening. George Martin must have felt the need to break up the simple sequence of 'verse/ refrain' pairings with something that would change the overall feel and then become a nice segue back into a third 'verse/ refrain' set. The Beatles originally released Good Night written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and The Beatles released it on the album The Beatles [White Album] in 1968. Paul's thoughts were also on him at this time, his song "Hey Jude" being inspired by John's son. The results easily show the beauty of this tender John Lennon composition.

After The Beatles concentrated on other songs, such as  "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" and the faster re-make of "Revolution," they returned their attention to "Good Night" nearly three weeks later, on July 22nd, 1968 in EMI Studio One. The Beatles originally released Good Night written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and The Beatles released it on the album The Beatles [White Album] in 1968.

We've had a lovely day at the park and now it's time for sleep.” Another was “Put all those toys away. The Beatles began work on ‘Good Night’ on the night of 28 June 1968. “John had made a demo for Ringo to take home and practice to, and it was played back a couple of times that night...It's a shame that this particular tape has been lost to the world, and that nobody will ever hear the gorgeous way John sang his tender little song.” As mentioned above, Paul remembered this demonstration by John as occurring there in the studio on this day, saying how “he sang it great” and assumed it wasn't recorded. I always cite that song as an example of the John beneath the surface that we only saw occasionally. It was decided at this point to begin the song with the refrain (“dream sweet dreams for me...”), John giving his approval from the control room with the words “It sounds nice starting like that, anyway.” George Harrison then suggests starting the vocals directly on the downbeat after the song is counted off, George Martin then asking George to count it off for them, which he then does. However, he decided that Ringo shouldn't sing it as he was instructed to back on June 28th, nor should the melody line be played instrumentally. George Martin, Ken Scott and engineer John Smith assembled once again in the control room of EMI Studio Two for two attempts at the mono mix, the second one being best. While they were at it, they created stereo mixes of the innovative but abandoned "take ten" of the song with John's guitar and the group's harmony vocals from June 28th, 1968, a short introduction to John and Ringo's vocal rehearsals later that day, and a July 22nd vocal rehearsal with George Martin on piano.
