"Come Together" (1969)

Originally written for Timothy Leary's short-lived gubernatorial campaign, "Come Together" was released on the Abbey Road album in 1969. The song was also the subject of a lawsuit by Chuck Berry's music publisher, who claimed that a line from one of Berry's songs had been stolen for use in The Beatles' tune. The suit was settled out of court. The song reached number one in the States and number four in the U.K.
