Written by George Harrison and included on the Abbey Road album, Something is without a doubt George’s most famous song while he was in The Beatles and one of the stand out tracks from that album. Normally with an isolated track article I’d post the guitars or perhaps the vocals but what you have here is the isolated organ (played by Billy Preston) and the orchestral pieces. Both of them together form an incredible isolated track.
Have a listen:
Hearing the organ isolated the way it is but also alongside the orchestral pieces is nothing short of majestic. Listening to this isolated track really opens up the song and enables you to hear more of the background instruments which are buried a little deeper in the final mix due to the guitar, bass, drums and of course the vocals. It really is beautiful and one of the best isolated Beatles tracks you’ll hear, although I’ve been saying that in every isolated track article I’ve posted so far. You just can’t beat them.
