"Tomorrow Never Knows" is the final track of The Beatles' 1966 studio album Revolver but the first to be recorded. Credited as a Lennon--McCartney song, it was written primarily by John Lennon. The song has a vocal put through a Leslie speaker cabinet (which was normally used as a loudspeaker for a Hammond organ) and uses automatic double tracking (ADT) to double the vocal image. Tape loops prepared by the Beatles were mixed in and out of the Indian-inspired modal backing underpinned by Ringo Starr's constant but non-standard drum pattern. The song is also one of the first uses of a flanger effect on any instrument. It is often considered one of the greatest songs of all time, with Pitchfork Media placing it at number 19 on its list of "The 200 Greatest Songs of the 1960s", and it being featured in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All-Time.
