Chart success: Something

On November 29th 1969, George Harrison's Something topped the US Billboard Hot 100; the Beatles' 18th US number one. It only peaked at number four in the UK.

"I had written ‘Something’ on the piano during the recording of the White Album. There was a period during that album when we were all in different studios doing different things trying to get it finished, and I used to take some time out. So I went into an empty studio and wrote ‘Something’."
