GEORGE MARTIN ON 'BBC RECORD PRODUCERS' BROADCAST 2009 TALKING ABOUT JOHN LENNON

John, you see, John always thought in his mind the music was there and reality never pleased him. It was so much better in his head and I don't think he was ever satisfied and in fact we were having a chat one night just before he died and he said "you know George if I could I'd record everything again that we did" and I groaned, and I said "you can't be serious", I said "we did some great stuff John", he said "no, it could be better", I said "what about Strawberry Fields Forever?" and he looked at me, lowered his glasses and said "especially Strawberry Fields", so I thought "Oh God!". (Laughter)

Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see
It’s getting hard to be someone, but it all works out
It doesn’t matter much to me
— The Beatles - Strawberry Fields Forever 1967
