**I often say if you want to study how to construct a song you should study the Ballad of John and Yoko. It is simply a masterpiece.
**Listen how John and Paul build the song by adding instruments and harmony - it is simply staggering/genius. You'd almost think the tempo was faster as the song progressed but it's all about how John and Paul built the song.
**I just love it - no harmony, harmony on the end of a word, on the word and then the phrase to the whole line - beautiful
**the song just builds - somewhat like Don't Let Me Down
**As for Old Brown Shoe - it is one of my favourites - highly under-rated
**Gary Brooker - Old Brown Shoe - Concert for George Harrison
**and the song itself by The Twotles
**Ballad of J&Y cover
*Nowhere Man
*Love the guitars
*Love the Harmonies
*probably in my top 5
"Lennon wrote the song about himself after racking his brain in desperation for five hours trying to come up with another song for Rubber Soul. Lennon told Playboy magazine:

I'd spent five hours that morning trying to write a song that was meaningful and good, and I finally gave up and lay down. Then 'Nowhere Man' came, words and music, the whole damn thing as I lay down.[7]

McCartney said of the song:

That was John after a night out, with dawn coming up. I think at that point, he was a bit...wondering where he was going, and to be truthful so was I. I was starting to worry about him."
