Sexy Sadie – The Beatles

The Beatles,THE BEATLES (White Album)

composed by John Lennon & Paul McCartney ©1968 Northern Songs Ltd.


ビートルズが1968年にリリースしたアルバムTHE BEATLES (White Album)の22曲目。クレジットはLennon – McCartneyだが、実質的にはジョン・レノンの作品。彼らが教えを請うたインドの導師マハリシ・マヘシ・ヨギに対する失望、怒りがテーマになっている。

当初のタイトルはズバリ “Maharishi"で、初期のテイクには、"Maharishi, you fucking cunt. Who the fuck do you think you are?"という歌詞が入っており、ポール・マッカートニーはこれに乗り気だったがジョージ・ハリスンの説得で撤回された。Sadieというのはヒンズー教の行者Saadhu(サドゥー)をもじったジョンの造語。


John Lennon (1980)
That was inspired by Maharishi. I wrote it when we had our bags packed and we’re leaving. It was the last piece I wrote before I left India. I just called him, 'Sexy Sadie,’ instead of (sings) 'Maharishi what have you done, you made a fool…’ I was just using the situation to write a song, rather calculatingly but also to express what I felt. I was leaving the Maharishi with a bad taste. You know, it seems that my partings are always not as nice as I’d like them to be.
