Do You Know Now, Mister Show?

Attracts Me Like A Pomegranate

The Beatles working out an arrangement and the words to "Something."

I want to hear the alternate-universe version with the cool harmonies this hints at (around 1:20 to 2:00).

"Just say whatever comes into your head each time, 'Attracts me like a cauliflower,' until you get the words."
-- John Lennon

A promotional film for this song, directed by longtime Beatle confidant Neil Aspinall, features separate footage of each of the four Beatles (with the four Beatle wives). The musical closeness and shorthand in the session is nowhere to be seen in the clip, which hints that the band had basically already broken up (but couldn't yet be bothered to let anyone know).
