Yeah, but doesn't that go all out the window with "Norwegian Wood"?

Wait. "Girl" and "Run For Your Life" are for Cynthia?

Also, "Nowhere Man" and "Good Morning Good Morning" weren't really about/for Cynthia. They were a pessimistic self portrait and a song that took its title from an ad for cornflakes, and John could have gotten his domestic experience from any other marriage. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Those sound more like individual interpretations. (Well, maybe not the "Run For Your Life" one. That sounds pretty accurate.) Anyway, "Girl" and "Run For Your Life" are two songs I, for one, could definitely do without.

To go slightly off-topic, I don’t get why a lot of people aren’t big fans of “Run For Your Life.” I love that song! Woot, Team RFYL!

John said the following about Girl: It wasn't just a song, and it was about that girl - that turned out to be Yoko, in the end - the one that a lot of us were looking for. Also, don't forget my new and Improved Run For Your Life!

The Lyrics are a little to graphic for our tastes

I think Yoko could have saved him from Cynthia, another (hypothetical) dead-end marriage, or any other situation.

My dislike of that song boils down to the lyrics. If you substitute Zig's version of the lyrics (see the "Run For Your Life" thread), it's really fun to sing along to.
