Is it compulsive listening? not for me, no; It's stifled by its own sluggish inertia. Does it have merits? certainly - Lennon's peerless vocals are perfectly showcased here. To quote the great Carr & Tyler (with whom I sometimes strongly disagree - they preposterously trumpet this as "Lennon's best song on the album" and overrate it as "magnificent"): "The voice control and dynamics displayed on the later bars of each verse are quite astounding and reveal him as by far the most gifted vocalist in the group."

I think his vocal is what makes the song. He was a terrific rock singer.

When the album was new I considered this a speed bump. Kind of a downer and skip-worthy.
Ha! Beautifully chosen words!!!!!

This song always used to play in my head when if was in university (as often I got not much sleep). It's a fun song, I reckon, and makes you sympathise to John with his lack of sleep.

Sorry, I missed that one somewhere, somehow!

I do like Georges guitar part in there.

My favourite line from this song is "I'd give you everything I've got for a little peace of mind". It's very relatable and the way its sung reminds me of being in the bedraggled, strung-out-on-emotions state of being.
