I think it's John's song.
It's very 'Lennon-ish' to me, too.

I was actually there when he wrote the song, but that's most definately another story for another time (hides from the hounding press)...

It's a little hazy to me now, but I think I remember the exact situation...

We were sitting in a room (God knows where!), and he looked up to the bunch of us who were hanging out with him (why no one brought a camera, I don't know... it just wasn't really that big a deal back then), just before his pen started moving... He said, "I want to write something... something... real... something lasting..." someone mentioned he write about the government, but others said nah, it was not him... then he said, "I'll write about liverpool. About my life" We sat in amazement as he wrote out the entire song in front of us... Then he picked up the guitar, fiddled around a bit, then suddenly, he got this look in his eyes... Then, bum bum, bumbumbumbum (the opening riff to the song)...

And a hit was born... It was really a great experience! And a beautiful song that Paul had nothing to do with whatsoever.

Quote from: opportunityknocks
McCartney: I recall going off for half an hour and sitting with a Mellotron he had, writing the tune,

Hmmmm did John or even EMI have a mellotron in 1965? I don't think so! I think Macca's memory is a bit hazy there! :)

Whoever created this song is a musical genius. Actually, they both are anyways, so that won't change how great this song is.

I love the harmony in it, it's a really sweet sounding tune and quite nice to listen to.

The only song that comes close to rivalling In My Life is The Beach Boys God Only Knows. It's important to remember that hardly nobody were introspective in music at this point. John Lennon could be classed a genius solely for this track. Completely underrated in what it did for music and songwriting.

Do you mean rivalling in introspectiveness, or beauty, or just being AAAAAAAAAA quality?

As in they rival each other for the title of best song of all time. Both are beautiful.

I think A Day In The Life is kinda overrated. Great song, just not one of my favorites.

yeah man it's pretty Lennon-ish !! John loved talking about himself, look "Girl" for instance, he  has always something to tell, he's so nostalgic sometimes, always looking back to the past, to the old memories !! Paul didn't have this "inner-self" aspect reflected into his songs...dont know maybe i'm messing up, but that's what i feel!
