WHY ME?
ACOUSTIC.
Relax and enjoy six of the best acoustic songs from John Lennon.  𝗦𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗻𝗼𝘄 → 𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗸 𝗶𝗻 𝗯𝗶𝗼.
''Strawberry Fields'? It’s a name, it’s a nice name. When I was writing 'In My Life', I was trying 'Penny Lane' at that time. We were trying to write about Liverpool and I just listed all the nice sounding names, just arbitrarily. Strawberry Fields was a place near us that happened to be a Salvation Army home. But Strawberry Fields, I mean, I have visions of Strawberry Fields. And there was Penny Lane, and the Cast Iron Shore, which I’ve just got in some song now, and they were just good names; just groovy names. Just good-sounding. Because Strawberry Fields is anywhere you want to go.'⠀
⠀
Interview with Jonathan Cott; photo: Ethan Russell; 34 Montagu Square, London, 17 September 1968
'There’s nothing more fun than talking about your own songs and your own records. I mean, you can’t help it, it’s your bit, really. We talk about them together. Remember that.'⠀
⠀
Interview with Jonathan Cott; photo: Ethan Russell; 34 Montagu Square, London, 17 September 1968
'The ones that really meant something to me: 'Strawberry Fields', 'She Said', 'Walrus', 'Rain', 'Girl', There are just one or two others, 'Day Tripper', 'Paperback Writer', even. 'Ticket to Ride' was one more, I remember that. It was a definite sort of change. 'Norwegian Wood' – that was the sitar bit. Definitely, I consider them moods or moments.'⠀
⠀
Interview with Jonathan Cott; photo: Ethan Russell; 34 Montagu Square, London, 17 September 1968
'I just like Rock 'n' Roll. I mean, these are the records I dug then. I dig them now and I’m still trying to reproduce "Some Other Guy" sometimes or "Be Bop A Lula." Whatever it is, it’s the same bit for me. It’s really just the sound. I’d like to make a record like "Some Other Guy." I haven’t done one that satisfies me as much as that satisfied me. Or "Be Bop A Lula" or "Heartbreak Hotel" or "Good Golly, Miss Molly" or "Whole Lot of Shakin’."'⠀
⠀
Interview with Jonathan Cott; photo: Ethan Russell; 34 Montagu Square, London, 17 September 1968
'I used to write a book or stories on one hand, and write songs on the other. And I'd be writing completely freeform in a book or just on a bit of paper, but when I'd start to write a song, I'd be thinking: 'dee duh dee duh do doo do de do de doo'. And it took Dylan and all that was going on then to say, 'oh, come on now, that's the same bit, I'm just singing the words.' ⠀
⠀
With 'I Am the Walrus,' I had 'I am he as you are he as we are all together.' I had just these two lines on the typewriter, and then about two weeks later I ran through and wrote another two lines and then, when I saw something, after about four lines, I just knocked the rest of it off. Then I had the whole verse or verse and a half and then sang it. I had this idea of doing a song that was a police siren, but it didn't work in the end (sings like a siren) 'I-am-he-as-you-are-he-as...' You couldn't really sing the police siren.'⠀
⠀
Interview with Jonathan Cott; photo: Ethan Russell; 34 Montagu Square, London, 17 September 1968
'Rockers is what we really are. You can give me a guitar, stand me up in front of a few people. Even in the studio, if I’m getting into it, I’m just doing my old bit – not quite doing Elvis' legs but doing my equivalent. It’s just natural. Everybody says we must do this and that, but our thing is just rocking.⠀
