Something Come Together


“Something” by George Harrison was released, with Lennon’s “Come Together,” as a double A-side in the US on 6 October 1969 (it was released in the UK at the end of the month). It was the first Harrison song released as an A-side by the Beatles (John Lennon thought it was the best song on Abbey Road and lobbied for the song to be released as a single) and was the band’s 18th #1 single, breaking the record held by Elvis Presley. It was also the first single by the Beatles to include songs that were already available (Abbey Road had been released a week earlier).
