"When George and Paul and all of them were away on holiday, I made 'Revolution' which was on the LP. I wanted to put it out as a single, but they said it wasn't good enough. We put out 'Hey Jude', which was worthy - but we could have had both. We recorded the song twice. The Beatles were getting real tense with each other. The first take, George and Paul were resentful and said it wasn't fast enough. Now, if you go into the details of what a hit record is or isn't, maybe. But The Beatles could have afforded to put out the slow, understandable version of 'Revolution' as a single, whether it was a gold record or a wooden record. But because they were so upset over the Yoko thing and the fact that I was again becoming as creative and dominating as I was in the early days (after lying fallow for a couple of years), it upset the applecart. I was awake again and they weren't used to it. I wanted to put out what I felt about revolution. I thought it was about time we spoke about it, the same as I thought it was about time we stopped not answering about the Vietnamese war. I had been thinking about it up in the hills in India. I still had this 'God will save us' feeling about it: 'It's going to be all right.' That's why I did it: I wanted to talk. I wanted to say my piece about revolutions. I wanted to tell you, or whoever listens, to communicate, to say, 'What do you say? This is what I say.' There were two versions of that song, but the underground left only picked up on the one that said 'count me out'. The original version which ends up on the LP said 'count me in' too. I put in both because I wasn't sure.. I didn't want to get killed. I didn't really know much about the Maoist, but I just knew they seemed so few and yet they painted them-selves green and stood in front of the police waiting to get picked off. I just thought it was unsubtle. I thought the original Communist revolutionaries coordinated themselves a bit better and didn't go around shouting about it." ~ John Lennon. - (see more).
