Classic Rock



Presented, after a 20-second pause, as an untidy after-thought, Her Majesty was originally conceived as a buffer between Mean Mr Mustard and Polythene Pam, but ultimately edited. In essence it’s an affectiona­te observatio­n that while The Queen’s ‘a pretty nice girl… she doesn’t have a lot to say’, knocked out by McCartney. Inserted into the Long Medley, it didn’t work, so was set aside to be discarded, but was tagged on to the end of the album for safety by cautious second engineer John Kurlander.
