Something-Come together
Come Together is a song by The Beatles written primarily by John Lennon and credited to Lennon/McCartney. The song is the lead-off track on The Beatles' September 1969 album Abbey Road. It was intended to be a song for Timothy Leary's campaign for governor of California, but the campaign ended when Leary was sent to prison for possession of marijuana. Some lyrics were changed and reworded, leading to the song being one side of the group's twenty-first single (a double A-side with George Harrison's "Something"). The song reached the top of the charts in the U.S., while becoming a Top 10 hit in the UK. It is also featured in the video game The Beatles: Rock Band. The song contains elements of blues rock and swamp rock.

LOVE versionEdit

The song was included in LOVE, mashed-up with Dear Prudence (as an instrumental fade in at the end) and Cry Baby Cry (as a transition).
