The Beatles,THE BEATLES (White Album)

さあ もうおやすみを言う時間だよ
おやすみ ぐっすりお眠り
ほら 太陽も沈んでしまったよ
おやすみ ぐっすりお眠り


ビートルズが1968年にリリースしたアルバムTHE BEATLES (White Album)のラストナンバー。クレジットはLennon – McCartneyだが実質的にはジョン・レノンの作品である。

1969年3月にアムステルダムで行われたジョンとオノ・ヨーコのベッド・インの期間中、彼はこの曲をアコースティック・ギターの弾き語りでラフに歌って録音し、同年11月に発表したヨーコとの3作目のアルバムWEDDING ALBUMのB面ラスト付近に収録した。

Ringo Starr (1968)
Everybody thinks Paul wrote 'Good Night’ for me to sing, but it was John who wrote it for me. He’s got a lot of soul, John has.

Paul McCartney (1968)
John wrote it, mainly. It’s his tune, uhh, which is surprising for John– 'cuz he doesn’t normally write this kind of tune. It’s a very sweet tune, and Ringo sings it great, I think. The arrangement was done by George Martin, uhh, 'cuz he’s very good at that kind of arrangement, you know– very sort of lush, sweet arrangement.

John Lennon (1980)
'Good Night’ was written for Julian, the way 'Beautiful Boy’ was written for Sean… but given to Ringo and possibly overlush.

Paul McCartney (1994)
I think John felt it might not be good for his image for him to sing it, but it was fabulous to hear him do it, he sang it great. We heard him sing it in order to teach it to Ringo and he sang it very tenderly. John rarely showed his tender side, but my key memories of John are when he was tender, that’s what has remained with me– those moments where he showed himself to be a very generous, loving person. I always cite that song as an example of the John beneath the surface that we only saw occasionally… I don’t think John’s version was ever recorded.
