Written by George Harrisonit was the last new track recorded by the band before their split in April The song's musical mood alternates between waltz -time verses, during which Harrison laments the ego problems afflicting the Beatles, and choruses played in the hard rock style. When preparing the Let It Be album for release inproducer Phil Spector extended the track by repeating the song's chorus and second verse, in addition to adding orchestration. The original version of the track, at just in duration and without the orchestral overdubs, Rasheed Miller - Just For You (Philly Time) on the Beatles' outtakes compilation Me Mine (Including John & Yoko Waltzing) - The Beatles - Cinelogue Let It Be 3introduced by a mock announcement from Harrison referring to Lennon's departure.
Harrison titled his autobiography, I, Me, Mineafter the song. The set of pronouns that form the song's title are a conventional way of referring to the ego in a Hindu context.
This is the supreme state. Attain to this, and pass from death to immortality. I, me and mine is all ego orientation. But it is something which is used all the time All through your life, I me mine.
Harrison wrote "I Me Mine" during the second week of the Beatles ' filmed rehearsals at Twickenham Film Studios in Januaryand drew inspiration from the divisive atmosphere in the band. Harrison completed "I Me Mine" that night and performed it for the other Beatles the following morning. The Let It Be documentary film features a segment in which Harrison plays the song for Ringo Starr and describes it as "a heavy waltz".
The group recorded 16 takes of the song, the last of which was deemed satisfactory. The extension was carried out on 23 March. A similar edit, without Spector's orchestral overdubs but retaining the repeated section, was made available on the Let It Be Naked album in Although a session on 20 Augustto oversee the creation of the master tape of their Abbey Road album, marked the last time that all four Beatles were present in the recording studio,  "I Me Mine" was the last new song recorded by the Beatles until sessions for their Anthology project in It Triste - Laura Fygi - The Best Of Laura Fygi not the group's final recording session before their break-up, however, since McCartney, Harrison and Starr continued to carry out various overdubs on the Let It Be tracks.
Among contemporary reviews of the album, Alan Smith of the NME derided the release as "a cheapskate epitaph" and a "sad and tatty end" to the band's career,  but he admired the "Russian-flavoured 'I Me Mine'" as "a strong ballad with a frantic centre".
George put a lot of strength into this. Harrison titled his autobiography after the track. According to Harrison's foreword to the book, he titled it I, Me, Mine to acknowledge that it "could also be seen as 'a little ego detour'". Beatles author Ian MacDonald wrote that, given the song's subject matter, it was a "poetic stroke of fate" that "I Me Mine" was the final track recorded by the Beatles.
He said that "it hinted at the egos at play within the group that would eventually signal their demise. In a review for MojoJohn Harris wrote that "[Harrison's] vocal, frequently pitched just short of falsetto, is a delight" and admired the string arrangement for "manag[ing] to tease out the sense of camp" underlying the song. In an article for Billboard commemorating the album's 45th anniversary, Kenneth Partridge described Let It Be as "the sound of four grown men with shared histories and diverging futures trying to squeeze blood from stones".
He added: "'I Me Mine' famously stands as the last new Beatles song recorded before the group's split. One of the members of the indie rock band Gengahr commented: "When exploring music at a young age I remember this song's weird change of time signatures and rhythm Me Mine (Including John & Yoko Waltzing) - The Beatles - Cinelogue Let It Be sections confusing me as to how it was able to exist as one song, but it just does.
The sound of the drums and the rhythm reminds me of an early hip hop sound, I'm surprised I haven't heard it sampled yet. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

There are two "I"s: the little "i" when people say "I am this"; and the big "I" — is duality and ego. There is nothing that isn't part of the complete whole.
