BEATLES WHITE ALBUM
For Beatles fans, in 'Savoy Truffle' on the White Album, "Montιlimar" is a French city famous for its white nougat.
Here is some additional information sent in by a website visitor:
George wrote the song "Savoy Truffle" after recording "while my guitar gently weeps" with Eric Clapton. Clapton was consuming vast amounts of chocolates (being a junkie at the time) and preferred a particular brand ( Good News - made by Nestle, if I recall correctly) - they were a variety box of chocolate candies - there is a line in the song "yes, you know it's Good News".
Another side note is that Claptons teeth were going bad because of the junkie diet and he was having lots of dental work at the time (yes, you'll have to have them all pulled out after the Savoy Truffle!).
The names of each of the chocolate candies was listed on the inside of the box lid. The lyrics are basically a reading of the box lid - coconut fudge, crθme tangerine, Montelimar, Savoy truffle, apple tart, etc. (although that last reference may well refer to the girls who hung out outside the Apple offices). As kids we used to give out Mum a box at Christmas or birthdays - wish I'd kept one of the boxes - BTW its a favorite Harrison song of mine - I could wax eloquent about the horn section!
