'Something' was written on the piano while we were making the White Album. I had a break while Paul was doing some overdubbing so I went into an empty studio and began to write. -George Harrison George Harrison first introduced "Something" at a Beatles session on 19 September 1968. At first George Martin considered it "too weak and derivative". Lennon and McCartney were also unimpressed, that is until they all began to work thru and rehearse the composition together. The song is almost unrecognizable when they begin. Then little by little you can hear the genius that was the Beatles, from seed to flower. Pretty special stuff I think.
