The Songs of John Lennon by : John Lennon : John Stevens


An essential guide for all songwriters and Beatles fans; this book explores John Lennon's songwriting genius with a guided tour through 25 of his Beatles-era hits. Author John Stevens explains Lennon's intuitive talent from a technical point of view; through the lens of songwriting's three basic elements: melody; harmony and lyric. He shows how Lennon fashioned songs that were at once politically and socially relevant during the '60s; yet remain ageless and timeless today. Features in-depth musical analysis of: A Hard Day's Night • Ticket to Ride • Norwegian Wood • Strawberry Fields Forever • Come Together • and more.

John Stevens is a songwriting professor at Berklee College of Music. For more than 20 years; he has taught “The Music of John Lennon;” one of the most popular courses in the Berklee curriculum.

“You've got the Beatles' records and the John Lennon records; now with this book; you can have the Owner's Manual. This will tell you how the songs are built and how they work. Good stuff.”

– Marshall Crenshaw; Singer/Songwriter
