A Day in the Life, the final song on The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album features a special section just for your dog!
Written by John Lennon and outspoken animal activist, Paul McCartney, the song has a short section of audio that only dogs can hear. And, we just love their reason for putting it into the song!
Following “A Day in the Life” on the Sgt. Pepper album is a high-frequency 15-kilohertz tone and some randomly spliced Beatles studio chatter. The frequency is best understood as what we know as a dog whistle as the frequency is picked up by a dog’s ear and was part of their humor. They joked about picturing barking dogs should they be present when the album would finish.
The whistle appears at about 5:05 in the video below (or so we’re told – we can’t hear it to confirm!).
Hit play, enjoy the song, then watch for your dog’s reaction just after the 5-minute mark!
So, did your dog react? Tell us about it!
