John Lenon. Who hasn’t heard that name? If you are a big fan of every music, then you must have heard the name of the pop group “The Beatles.” The news came from one of the members of the group, John Lenon. John Lenon didn’t like a piece of music that came through his way. It was “Run for his life.”
According to the singer, this song is considered as his “Least Favorite song from the Beatles.” The song is known to borrow a lyric part from Elvis Presley’s hit song “Baby Let’s Play House.” The line references about wanting to kill a girlfriend if she’s unfaithful in her relationship.
In the year 1970, John gave an interview to The Rolling Stone. In the interview, he stated, “Run for Your Life, I always hated, you know. I never liked Run For Your Life, because it was a song I just knocked off. It was inspired by – this is a very vague connection – from Baby Let’s Play House. There was a line on it, I used to like specific lines from songs, “I’d rather see you dead,” “little girl,” “Than to be with another man,” so I wrote it around that, but I didn’t think it was that important.”
Though he recorded the song peacefully with his mind somewhere back in his mind, he had a different position and image for this song. John was assassinated in the year 1980. Not so long ago, his friends Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr joined each other for covering and recording one of John’s songs. This was their way to give a tribute to the band partner of the singer. “I sang it the best that I could. I do well up when I think of John this deeply. And I’ve done my best. We’ve done our best. The other good thing is that I wanted Paul to play on it, and he said yes,” as stated by Ringo in an interview for the work he collaborated with Paul.
