Across the Universe, what key?


What key was Across the Universe recorded in?  All the books, every one of them, including The Complete Beatles, have the song in the key of D.  But when I play along with it, it isn't D.  It appears to be D flat.  Why would the books have it in a different key, especially The Complete Beatles?


Spector slowed down the initial version.  John played it in D, but Phil slowed it to C#.

yep, second that. the version on 'let it be' sounds slowed down. listen to the gorgeous version on anthology 2, that's the best i think and that's in D.
