Help! track listing
I was in Kenwood and I would just be songwriting. The period would be for songwriting and so every day I would attempt to write a song and it’s one of those that you sort of sing a bit sadly to yourself, 'Here I stand, head in hand...'

I started thinking about my own emotions — I don’t know when exactly it started like 'I’m a Loser' or 'Hide Your Love Away' or those kind of things — instead of projecting myself into a situation I would just try to express what I felt about myself which I’d done in me books. I think it was Dylan helped me realize that — not by any discussion or anything but just by hearing his work– I had a sort of professional songwriter’s attitude to writing pop songs; he would turn out a certain style of song for a single and we would do a certain style of thing for this and the other thing.

—John Lennon, Rolling Stone Interview, RS74, 21 Jan 1971
