fJohn Lennon and Song Writing
John and Paul would write songs wherever they could
All they needed was an idea to get them started
They would both toss musical lyrics and riffs back and forth until they came up with something creative
John once said: "Lyrics didn't really count as long as we had some vague theme"
They were mainly going for a catchy hook
John would usually have a catchy, creative song in a couple of hours
They always came up with some sort of creative catchy tune and went from there

"It was like living in the eye of a hurricane. You'd wake up in a concert and think, 'Wow, how did i get here?'"-John Lennon
