“Strawberry Fields Forever” is a song by The Beatles, written by John Lennon and attributed to the Lennon/McCartney songwriting partnership. It was inspired by Lennon’s memories of playing in the garden of a Salvation Army house named “Strawberry Field” near his childhood home. “Strawberry Fields Forever” was intended for the album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967), as it was the first song recorded for it, but was instead released in February 1967 as a double A-side single with Paul McCartney’s “Penny Lane”. “Strawberry Fields Forever” reached number eight in the United States, with numerous critics describing it as one of the group’s best recordings.
