Chris Thomas on "Helter Skelter"

"The Beatles had been trying to do 'Helter Skelter' before actually. They were doing it much slower and it didn't quite work out. When we were sequencing the album right at the end, Paul decided that it had to be mixed again. I was listening to running orders with John while Paul was in there remixing the song with Ken Scott as engineer. Ken came in and said, 'Paul's gone to sleep. You've got to come and help me.' And when we did the mix, we faded out and just faded it back up again and sort of left it. Then we said, 'Yeah, it's all right. That goes on.' That's all it was. There was no hidden meaning."
