The song 'Strawberry Fields Forever' is actually two versions of the song mixed together by George Martin. One was a half-tone higher and slightly faster. When it was slowed down it somehow fit together with the other version perfectly. The Beatles liked both versions and couldn't decide on one and asked Martin if he could put them together somehow. When he tried it - it worked!
