Good Morning, Good Morning (Lennon/McCartney)


The Corn Flakes jingle

A Kellogg’s Corn Flakes commercial inspired the chorus of “Good Morning Good Morning”: “Good morning good morning, best to you each morning. Sunshine breakfast, Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, crisp and full of fun.”


“It’s a throwaway, a piece of garbage, I always thought. I always had the TV on very low in the background when I was writing, and it came over, and then I wrote the song.” – John Lennon

“John said to me during one of the breaks that he wanted to have the sound of animals escaping and that each successive animal should be capable of frightening or devouring its predecessor! So those are not just random effects, there was actually a lot of thought put into all that.” – Geoff Emerick
