It's All Too Much was written and sung by George Harrison and appeared in the Yellow Submarine soundtrack album. Originally intended for the 1967 release of Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and then for Magical Mystery Tour, the song was deferred twice until its release in 1969. The song is classifiable as "psychedelic rock," using a G major chord as a drone. According to its composer, It's All Too Much was conceived and written from apparitions stimulated by an LSD trip. This song is notable for several unusual facts: Harrison took a line completely from Sorrow, sung by The Merseys: "With your long blonde hair and your eyes of blue." Harrison borrowed liberally from Jeremiah Clarke's Trumpet Voluntary in D (Prince of Denmark's March) for the instrumental flourishes. In the recording, Harrison does not play lead guitar. That task is shared between McCartney and Lennon. Instead, George played the organ and the bass harmonica. Like I Feel Fine, which was recorded previously, It's All Too Much uses audio feedback as a special effect. One of very few tracks produced outside of Abbey Road, It's All Too Much was recorded at DeLane Lea Studios. The version of the song that appeared on the soundtrack album is 6:28 minutes long, making it one of the longer cuts in the Beatles' catalog.
