This track sounds, much more than the other songs on "The White Album", like the work of a real band. The collaboration is audible in the composition but especially the arrangements. It is particularly unfortunate that - compared to "The Magical Mystery Tour" for example, little remains of humor, and I mean the kind of humor that makes "I am the Walrus" so incredibly strong and unique.
Ambitious and successful
Am I the only one who thinks this song could have been good if it wasn't so badly produced? I mean, the guitar sounds awful and the drum is mixed very badly. This is very weird, considering how well tunes are normally produced with The Beatles. But it fits with the rest of disc one of The White Album, not polished and raw.
My favorite song about John Lennon's penis. Likely to be the best song off of The White Album, as well as one of Lennon's best vocal performances.
Since I have first heard this it instantly became one of my favourites! Interesting sounds and very complex. Happyness is a warm gun, yes it is!
A bit like Bohemian Rhapsody but 7 years earlier and actually good.
Brilliant and foreboding!
One of my favourite Beatles songs and certainly one of the highlights of the White album. John Lennon manages to cram about four or five songs into three minutes or so. It's a beautiful song suite, great lyrics and some sublime melodies put together to help make Happiness is a warm gun John Lennon's greatest contribution to the White album.
The highlight of the album for me. A symphony in less than 3 minutes during which it changes like 5 times. Breathtaking.
