If anyone has a spare twenty or so minutes, I found these gems on youtube of how I'm Stepping Out and Real Love were written. I know we have a few aspiring songwriters here, so I think it's nice to see another songwriters perspective, especially when that songwriter is, well, John Lennon. I like how John didn't rush the process and I really think it's a shame that he didn't get a chance to truly finish off either of these songs, but oh well.
What a beautiful voice.

I've always liked John's "middle eight" contributions to his own or other Beatles songs and I think this video shows how he came up with some of those ideas. It always seems difficult to not put together an entire thing at one time, but I like how John shows us that there doesn't need to be any rush and you can build a song out of seemingly unrelated parts.
I like how Paul did that too, like on Band on the Run. I wonder if there are any videos of how Paul put together his songs…are there any lost McCartney tapes? Let's see.
