See other formats The American magazine Hit Parader prints an extended interview with John in which he discusses who wrote what parts of which songs from the Lennon-McCartney catalogue. The royalties may be shared but sometimes not the worklode sic on a particular piece. To find out how much was written by who Pepper and the break up. Paul McCartney saw the list and came up with one correction. I think I had something to do with the middle. But I think we helped him a bit. It was meant to be a Shirelles kind of song.

This was just a silly song we knocked off. We wrote it together on tour. This was mainly mine though, I think. I wrote this for George. This was early Paul. I wrote it for Billy J. I wrote this on the second album. It was the song with the so-called Aeolian cadences, the same as in the Mahler symphony, at the end. This was one of his first biggies.

This was a knock-off between Paul and me for Ringo. I helped him finish it. This was for Billy J. One of his very early songs, but I think he changed the words later for Cilia [Black]. I wrote it for the Fourmost. A nice tune though the middle is a bit tatty.

An early one he wrote when he was about 16 or That was a terrible one. This was the first time feedback was used on a record. Though I helped with the middle, I think. A nice one — one of his early compositions. I think we wrote this when we were trying to write the title song for "Help" because there was at one time the thought of calling the film "Eight Arms To Hold You" or something.

Terrible lyric. But I think Paul helped with the verse. I wrote the middle with him. A very early song of mine. Ringo and Paul wrote a new middle eight together when we recorded it. I think I was trying to write about Penny Lane when I wrote it. It was about places I remembered. A nice song. Jose Feliciano did a nice version of it. Another one I never liked. I think I might have helped with some of the lyrics. Yes, I did. I wrote a good lot of the lyrics, about 70 percent.

Ray Charles did a great version of this. This was a great one of his. Paul wrote the catchy chorus. I helped with the blunderbuss bit. But I think maybe I helped him with some of the lyric. Another of his I really liked. Another horror. I think Paul helped with the middle.

This was my first psychedelic song. I helped him with the lyric. I think I helped with some of the words. In fact, I did. Hunter Davie sic was there when we did it and mentioned it in the book [the authorized biography The Beatles, published in ]. It was nothing to do with LSD.

I think Paul helped with the last verse. I think I helped with some of the words in the middle. Paul had the basic theme. But all of those lines like "We sacrificed most of our life We gave her everything money could buy.. Never a thought for ourselves.

Those were the things Aunt Mimi used to say. It was easy to write. KITE: Me. I got some of the words off an old circus poster. I have it in the billiard room. The story that Henry the Horse meant heroin was rubbish. A bit of a gobbledegook one, but nice words.

That was the time when I was putting Hare Krishna and all that down. I helped with some of the lyric. It started off as a song about my son Julian because Paul was going to see him. Then he turned it into "Hey Jude. I should never have put that in about Chairman Mao.

I was just finishing off in the studio when I did that. They all said it was about drugs but it was more about rock and roll than drugs. The title came from an American gun magazine. Yoko helped me with this one. We wrote it in the studio. Fats Domino did a great version of this one. That was about the Maharishi. This is a terrible arrangement. One of my best songs. Not one of the best recordings but I like the lyrics. A list of songs, according to Lennon, written by himself, about which he had no comment.

Songs which Lennon attributed directly to Paul McCartney, again offered with no comment. Songs attributed jointly to McCartney and himself by Lennon and offered again with no comment.
