It is rumoured that during the musical part at the end of the song that someone (possibly John) says, "I buried Paul", which is thought to be a clue to the Paul is Dead conspiracy theory, though it can be argued that he was merely saying, "cranberry sauce", and John himself denies the "I buried Paul" statement quite blatantly. It is featured on LOVE, the soundtrack to the performance. It is also covered in the film Across the Universe by the characters of Jude and Max during a scene in which you see Jude throwing strawberries at a wall and Max fighting in the Vietnam War.
One of the Bond Girls in the James Bond Movie "Quantum of Solace" is called Strawberry Fields. Agent Strawberry Fields is an MI6 agent who works at the British consulate in Bolivia in the 2008 film Quantum of Solace. She is portrayed by Gemma Arterton. She is later killed by Crude Oil.
The song was recorded 24, 28-29 November, 8-9, 15 21 and 22 December 1966 in Abbey Road Studios. Early records Takes 1 and 4, full version Take 7 and orchestral version Take 26 were included in the Anthology 2 and Anniversary Edition Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
