The Beatles -- ‘Its Only Love’

It’s Only Love (1.59)

John Lennon: Double-tracked lead vocal, acoustic guitar; Paul McCartney: Bass guitar; George Harrison: Lead guitar; Ringo Starr: Drums, tambourine;

John disowned this in 1969 because he was “ashamed of the abominable lyrics. That’s the one song I really hate of mine,” he said. “I was so ashamed I could hardly sing it. That must have been the worst thing I ever wrote.” Paul said: “Sometimes we didn’t fight it if the lyric came out rather bland. If a lyric was really bad we’d edit it, but we weren’t that fussy about it because it’s only a rock ‘n’ roll song. I mean, this is not literature.”

It turned out to be the last song that John ever wrote for the teenie-bopper market – after this he started concentrating on more personal stuff.
