** One particularly {{egregious}} example of this is "Girl"; though it only uses one verse, the orchestration and out-of-context lyrics changes the song from a lament about [[YokoOhNo a man whose girlfriend's presence is putting serious strain on his social life with his buddies]], to a simple ballad about a lost love.

** Sadie and [=JoJo=] are very obviously [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed fictitious counterparts]] to Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. The former's performance of "Helter Skelter" is reminiscent of Joplin's singing style and voice.

Also along for the ride are (Sexy) Sadie, their landlady who is also an aspiring singer, Jojo ("was a man who thought he was a loner"[[note]]from "Get Back"[[/note]]), a talented guitarist who makes his way to New York after the events of the 1967 Detroit riot, and (Dear) Prudence, a closeted lesbian who crashes into their shared apartment after running away from an abusive boyfriend. Everyone falls in love and for the hippie scene present there. But the real world intrudes as UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar wages on, and the political involvement (willing and otherwise) of various members of Jude's TrueCompanions becomes more and more perilous. It threatens to pull Jude and Lucy apart -- she's involved, and he doesn't approve of that part of the movement she's in...
