"Watching Rainbows" is an unreleased song by The Beatles recorded on 14 January 1969 during the massive Get Back sessions at Twickenham Studios. It features John Lennon on lead vocal and electric piano, Paul McCartney on lead guitar, and Ringo Starr on drums; bass guitar is absent from the song because Paul McCartney is playing the absent George Harrison's usual role as lead electric guitar. George Harrison had temporarily left the group at this stage of the sessions.
Famous quotes containing the words rainbows and/or watching:
“The lover never sees personal resemblances in his mistress to her kindred or to others. His friends find in her a likeness to her mother, or her sisters, or to persons not of her blood. The lover sees no resemblance except to summer evenings and diamond mornings, to rainbows and the song of birds.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“Before I was shot, I always thought that I was more half-there than all-thereI always suspected that I was watching TV instead of living life.... Right when I was being shot and ever since, I knew that I was watching television.”
—Andy Warhol (19281987)
