The Beatles: Baby You're a Rich Man

Most of the scenes in this clip are from when the group decided to buy a Greek island.

"Baby, You're a Rich Man" is a song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and recorded by The Beatles on 11 May 1967 at Olympic Sound Studios. This was the first song by the band recorded and mixed completely outside Abbey Road Studios. The song was recorded during sessions for the Magical Mystery Tour EP, but was intended for the Yellow Submarine soundtrack. That plan changed when it was used as the B-side of the "All You Need Is Love" single.

Two song fragments were combined to create "Baby, You're a Rich Man". The verses from "One of the Beautiful People" by John Lennon were combined with Paul McCartney's previously unaccompanied "Baby, you're a rich man..." chorus. Two songs were combined in a similar fashion to make "A Day in the Life". The song featured an unusual oboe-like sound, which was created with a clavioline, an early forerunner of the synthesiser.
