In a recent newsletter published on Paulmccartney.com, The Beatles bassist Paul McCartney has revealed the song which John Lennon wrote during a crisis.

Paul said that ‘John started writing ‘Help!’ during a crisis at that time in his life’. You can read the entire statement below.

Interviewer asked:

“Do you have a song that you put on if you’re ever having a hard time or a bad day, and it instantly makes you feel better?”

Paul responded:

“There’s a track on Egypt Station that came out of a hard time I think would fit the bill now! Alternatively, it would be old music like ‘All Shook Up’ or ‘Don’t Be Cruel’ by Elvis Presley. Or ‘What’d I Say’ by Ray Charles.

The track from Egypt Station: it’s funny what inspires you to write songs. For instance, John started writing ‘Help!’during a crisis at that time in his life, which is often a good motivator ‘cause there’s a therapy aspect to writing songs sometimes – but not all songs! It’s almost as if you’re telling your guitar your troubles and a lot of composure can be found through that.

So you sort of say what you might say to a therapist, but you put it into a song and you might feel better afterwards. You don’t have to be going through terrible times, just something that’s frustrating. So there’s a couple of songs like that on Egypt Station funnily enough!”
