no way paul sabotaged it.  In anthology he says both he and john came up with the line.  that makes it nearly certain that John solely came up with it, cause if Macca had a part in it he would take sole credit.  especially cos it was controversial and he always wanted to be as conrtoversial as john ( i take acid etc).  chalk this one up to uptigh beeb execs

Its not Pauls fault that he was more witty of the two and had a darker sense of humor.

Just because some lines resemble an acid trip, they immediately ban it?

...What is this world coming to, nowadays?

A Day In The Life is one of the Beatles' best songs!

I seem to remember reading somewhere that John asked if Paul would contribute his bit to the song.  (Paul was working on that bit he sang in A DAy In The Life for a song of his own).  Paul agreed and the bit got added in.

Personally, I think it created a great transition between segments of the song and was perfect for it.

Not living in England I can't comment on the BBC, but they seemed to want to ban just about everything that seemed even remotely controversial.  Perhaps we should ban the BBC?

o________o Oh, boy. Something that VAGUELY represents a drug reference -- hide the children! </sarcasm>

Why would they ban it...? It's a great song! @_@;;

Then again, the BBC banned "I Am the Walrus" because it said "knickers". o-o;
