A Day in the Life is a song by the British rock band The Beatles. Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, it is the final track on the group's 1967 album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The song comprises portions originally authored independently by Lennon and McCartney, two cacophonous, part-improvised, orchestra crescendos, and a sustained final piano chord. While Lennons lyrics were inspired by contemporary newspaper articles, McCartneys were reminiscent of his youth. The decisions to link sections of the song with orchestral crescendos and to end the song with a sustained piano chord were made only after the rest of the song had been recorded.

The supposed drug reference in the line Id love to turn you on resulted in the song initially being banned from broadcast by the BBC. The song is highly regarded by critics and is considered one of the most influential songs of all time. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked "A Day in the Life" at number 26 on the magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Since its original album release, "A Day in the Life" has been released as a B-side, and also on various compilation albums. It has been covered by other artists including Bobby Darin, Neil Young, Jeff Beck, The Bee Gees, and since 2008, by Paul McCartney in his live performances
