The Beatles - In My Life 1965

"In My Life" is a song by The Beatles written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney. The song originated with Lennon, and while McCartney contributed to the final version, the extent of his contribution is in dispute. Released on the 1965 album Rubber Soul, it is ranked 23rd on the Rolling Stone article "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time", and placed second on CBC's 50 Tracks. Mojo magazine named it the best song of all time in 2000.

According to Lennon, the song's origins can be found when English journalist Kenneth Allsop made a remark that Lennon should write songs about his childhood. Afterwards, Lennon wrote a song in the form of a long poem reminiscing on his childhood years. The original version of the lyrics was based on a bus route he used to take in Liverpool, naming various sites seen along the way, including Penny Lane and Strawberry Field.

The song was recorded on 18 October 1965, and was complete except for the instrumental bridge. At that time, Lennon had not decided what instrument to use, but he subsequently asked George Martin to play a piano solo, suggesting "something Baroque-sounding". Martin wrote a Bach-influenced piece that he found he could not play at the song's tempo. On 22 October, the solo was recorded at half-tempo (one octave lower) and tape speed was doubled for the final recording, solving the performance challenge and giving the piano solo a unique, harpsichord-like timbre.

* John Lennon -- double-tracked vocal, rhythm guitar

* Paul McCartney -- harmony vocal, bass, electric piano[A]

* George Harrison -- harmony vocal, lead guitar

* Ringo Starr -- drums, tambourine, bells[B]

* George Martin -- piano

In other news, I have added the lyrics to this song so you can sing along, or perhaps learn the song! This is how I learned my first Beatles song! Enjoy :)

This is such a tender evocation of love, lost love and everything beautiful. It makes me quite depressed.

I sang this song while behind bars in Narita, Japan. It was well received by those behind bars and the staff. Peace and Love! It was in 1987.

Back in high school we got the opportunity to vote for our class graduation song. The choices were "In My Life" by The Beatles, "I Will Remember You" by Sarah Mclachlan and a third song I can't remember. I voted for "In My Life" but "I Will Remember You" ended up winning. I hate my graduating class. You guys suck.

In the song "Julia", John Lennon says, "Half of what I say is meaningless, but I say it just to reach you." This clearly means that half of what they say is meaningful, and the rest is just there to reach us. ~~► *I suggest you to read "The Present" at TruthContest·Com if you are a Truth Seeker.*

I've specified in my Will that this is to be played at my funeral - for my beautiful children, my grandchildren and those I've loved and lost. I saw the Beatles when I was 16 and they were starting out - wonderful memories
