:: Harrison wrote the song as a tribute to his friend Eric Clapton's chocolate addiction, and indeed he derived the title and many of the lyrics from a box of Mackintosh's Good News chocolates. Supposedly all of the confectionery names used in the song are authentic, except cherry cream and coconut fudge.

Lennon described the song as resembling "a black New York girl-group song" Its basic structure of simple doo-wop chord changes and block harmonies over a walking bass line "creates an illusion of sincerity through its sheer attack." 

Paul McCartney said... 
"I think a lot of these [Lennon's] songs like "Tell Me Why" may have been based in real experiences or affairs John was having, or arguments with Cynthia [Lennon's wife] or whatever, but it never occurred to us until later to put that slant on it all."

:: A John Lennon favorite, 'GIRL' was recorded on the evening of 11 November 1965, the final night of work on the 'Rubber Soul' album. 

A touching lead by Louis, some 'artistic breathing' by JF & a powerful C part by the whole BOOTIK bunch, spins this version to unheard heights without compromising the structure, mood nor spirit of this delicate song. 

A fine piece of work indeed, just like, well... Most women ;)

:: A potent blend of songs about God, War & LSD delicately & seamlessly arranged to bring their individual messages across... 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' by the Beatles, 'Sky Pilot' by Eric Burdon & the Animals and 'Big Sky' by the Kinks. 

Note that the 3 songs are from the late 60's when creativity seemed to rime naturally with questioning The Man in all his incarnations.
