“Yellow Submarine”

Recorded at Abbey Road Studios in 1966, the Beatles taped the music and vocals first then returned a week later to dub on all the sound effects. ¬†According to writer Ian MacDonald, “Lennon filled a bucket with water and blew bubbles in it while the group’s chauffeur Alf Bucknell rattled chains in the bath and Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones clinked glasses.” ¬†This is also the theme for the animated film released in 1968.
