It may have been the sound they were looking to have, which is that sort of soul feel, that the Beatles were looking for in this song.

@gary davis - back in the day when someone said something was heavy it meant mind blowing, cool, far out if you will.

May well be the best instrumental track they ever recorded. All four of them just kill this sucker. How sweet would it have been to be in the studio watching this take shape?

Other similar phrases are "carry that weight" which is from 'Golden Slumbers' which is an experiential reference. Heavy in this context IS a reference to her overwhelming influence on John ... if not all of them in some sense ... during those times/days/m o m e n t s ! You had to be part of it to know it fully or at least that is my take!

Love this song and I've always particularly enjoyed the bass lines.

OK, perhaps I misphrased it. What I meant was that this is probably my least favorite of the Beatles songs that I've heard (or remember hearing).

choirgal1, I think you may be preaching to the choir.My response, Help her lose some weight, tone up, tighten up, improve her hygiene, sending her packing, help her save up to buy a mirror to defend herself from you. She's SO HEAVY., lol. Society and their idiotic double standards.be f o r e that profile was closed was in regards to the irony of this song. I understand what the song is saying, however, I want whomever who may want someone so bad to realize after their degradation and humiliation

of Suzy has made this person run AWAY. This person ( Suzy) has been destroyed by a very close and special friend. I wanted someone so bad at one time, but they hurt every part of my being and wanted to make my feelings in to a game.

I have always loved the Beatles I'm 58 I can't believe some people would actually think they are referring to a woman's weight. I don't know all the current slang but I am always interested in what's current and even slang before I was born like gadzooks yowza c'me on people....!! ! !

One might even argue it was the first heavy metal song, and you know Ozzy and Sabbath as well as Zep were likely huge fans of The Beatles during this time period. Without a doubt the most influential band of all time, at least in my book.

haha @ Davenportjr. m i k e . . . . H e a v y means she has deep thoughts and meaning. Another phrase used back then was, That's really deep, man. Heavy. Everyone was a philosopher back then and into existentiali s m even more than today. Today's existentiali s m is very self-focused whereas the attitude back then was looking at the world/univer s e and finding a meaningful place in it. (At least that's what my rose-colored glasses keep telling me.)
