This site covers the original British Beatles Albums plus analyses of the lyrics of non-album tracks.
Information on how the Beatles wrote the lyrics to the Rubber Soul album songs can be navigated from below.
John Lennon wrote the first Beatle song whose lyrics were not about love, nowhere man.
The song was part of a great transition that the Beatles were going through and from this point on their songs were much more philosophical in nature. John says that he came up with the song after struggling to come up with new material, he sat down exhausted and thought to himself I’m a real nowhere man and I’m sitting in a nowhere land, now that’s great lyrics.
John sings lead vocals on nowhere man, and Paul and George harmonise with him.
