“Tomorrow Never Knows” by the Beatles


song info

    “Tomorrow Never Knows” by the Beatles is a classic rock and psychedelic rock song. It was the first song recorded for the “Revolver” album, but the last song in track order on the album.
    The song is significant because it contains the first example of a vocal being put through a Leslie speaker cabinet to obtain a vibrato effect (which was normally used as a loudspeaker for a Hammond organ) and the use of an ADT system (Automatic double-tracking) to double the vocal image.
