Strawberry Fields Forever, The Beatles (1967)

Strawberry Fields Forever is a song by the British band The Beatles attributed to Lennon/McCartney although it was written by John Lennon. This song was released in 1967 as a double A-sided single along with Penny Lane, a song by Paul McCartney which was also attributed to both of them. Also, both songs were recorded during the Sgt. Pepper sessions, being Strawberry Fields Forever the first song recorded for the album and they lead with similar themes since them both refer to locations that somehow recall their infancy. As for Strawberry Fields it was the name of a garden near Lennon’s childhood home which belonged to an Army of Salvation house where he used to play. This nostalgic song may refer to Strawberry Fields as a refuge from the rest of the world as at the time Lennon’s desire to isolate from the world was growing bigger.
