MMT: Flying
« on: August 15, 2011, 07:07:21 PM »

Have any of The Beatles talked about the song Flying before?

I really enjoy that song but I never came across any mention of it from any member.

I've found this:

PAUL circa-1994: "'Flying' was an instrumental that we needed for (the film) 'Magical Mystery Tour' so in the studio one night I suggested to the guys that we made something up. I said, 'We can keep it very, very simple, we can make it a 12-bar blues. We need a little bit of a theme and a little bit of a backing.' I wrote the melody, otherwise it's just a 12-bar backing thing. It's played on the mellotron, on a trombone setting. It's credited to all four (Beatles), which is how you would credit a non-song."

In that page you'll find Beatles quotes about almost every official song they did.
