Savoy Truffle – The Beatles

The Beatles,THE BEATLES (White Album)

composed by George Harrison ©1968 Harrisongs 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27曲目。ジョージ・ハリスンの作品。

甘党でことさらチョコレートが好きだったエリック・クラプトンをネタにした曲。歌詞にある"Good News"というは、当時発売されていた英国Rowntree Mackintosh社のチョコレート詰め合わせの名前だ。
歌詞のうち"You know that what you eat you are"のくだりはアップルの広報担当だったデレク・テイラーによるもの。

George Harrison (1977)
'Savoy Truffle’ on The White Album was written for Eric (Clapton). He’s got this real sweet tooth and he’d just had his mouth worked on. His dentist said he was through with candy. So as a tribute I wrote, 'You’ll have to have them all pulled out after the Savoy Truffle.’ The truffle was some kind of sweet, just like all the rest– cream tangerine, ginger sling– just candy, to tease Eric.

George Harrison (1980)
'Savoy Truffle’ is a funny one written whist hanging out with Eric Clapton in the ’60s. At that time he had alot of cavities in his teeth and needed dental work. He always had a toothache but he ate alot of chocolates– he couldn’t resist them, and once he saw a box he had to eat them all. He was over at my house, and I had a box of 'Good News’ chocolates on the table and wrote the song from the names inside the lid. I got stuck with the two bridges for a while and Derek Taylor wrote some of the words in the middle– 'You know that what you eat you are.’
