Seems like an appropriate song for the holiday season, I suppose. Actually, not really. “Come Together” was recorded for the Abbey Road album and released as a double A-side with “Something”. John Lennon was inspired by Timothy Leary’s campaign for governor of California against Ronald Reagan, which had the slogan, “Come together, join the party.” The song’s lyrics are supposedly cryptic references to the individual Beatles with one figure in particular referring to Lennon as he works out his personal demons in the song.

And because it is Christmas Eve, here’s one of John Lennon’s solo numbers, “Happy Christmas (War is Over)”, to really get you in the holiday spirit!
