RIP: Maharishi Mahesh Yogi 1918-2008

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, once a spiritual leader for the Beatles and certainly a big influence on their later music, has reportedly passed away.

Out of respect for the deceased, I'd like to post an MP3 of Sexy Sadie, which is one of my favourite Beatles songs and was inspired entirely by John Lennon's not-so-positive experiences with Maharishi. Replace the name 'Sexy Sadie' with 'Maharishi' in the lyrics, and that's pretty much how John had originally written the song.
