This Version Of "Yellow Submarine" May Just Haunt Your Dreams

Jul 22, 2015 By Archit Tripathi
The Beatles recorded the song "Yellow Submarine" in 1966. The song was written by Paul McCartney specifically for Ringo Starr to sing it (which he did), which is why the vocal range isn't as challenging as some of their other works. Though Paul wrote most of the song, he collaborated with John Lennon and Scottish singer-songwriter Donovan on some parts.

Over the years, many people have attached various social and cultural meanings to the song, and even Donovan himself offered the theory that it was about the isolation that the Beatles felt having to live in the "white tower called 'Beatle fame' and not really having any contact with reality out there anymore." Paul McCartney, however, has gone on record to state that it was basically written as a catchy children's song and so "there's nothing more to be read into it than there is in the lyrics of any children's song."

In this bizarre video, YouTuber Christopher89123 took the classic song and created three puppet heads of The Beatles to lip sync the words, with the only explanation being "Because I felt like it."
