The Beatles Connection

The Beatles Connection
0 June 9, 2015

As some of you may know, my office is a Beatles museum. Some people ask me why. Why not, I say. But beyond my being a fan of the music, there is another Beatles connection to dentistry. On the White Album, there is a song calledSavoy Truffle about toothache. George Harrison wrote it for his friend Eric Clapton who was suffering from toothaches. I guess he had a sweet tooth. Most of you know about Whitman Samplers with the names of each chocolate under the lid of the box. In England, they have the same thing except it is called Good News. Basically, Georges’s lyrics list the chocolates. The lyric is: “Cream Tangerine, Montelemar, a Ginger Sling with a Pineapple Heart, Coconut Fudge yes you know it’s Good News. But you’ll have to have them all pulled out after the Savoy Truffle.”
