In My Life (Lennon/McCartney)

Quotes

"It was the first song I wrote that was consciously about my life. [Sings] "There are places I'll remember/all my life though some have changed..." Before, we were just writing songs a la Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly -- pop songs with no more thought to them than that. The words were almost irrelevant. "In My Life" started out as a bus journey from my house at 250 Menlove Avenue to town, mentioning all the places I could recall. I wrote it all down and it was boring. So I forgot about it and laid back and these lyrics started coming to me about friends and lovers of the past. Paul helped with the middle eight." - John Lennon, Playboy, 1980
