Lennon later expressed his dislike of the song, saying he "always hated" Run For Your Life. In he described it as his "least favourite Beatles song", although he did claim that it was one of George Harrison's favourites. It has a line from an old Presley song: "I'd rather see you dead, little girl, than to be with another man" is a line from an old blues song that Presley did once.
After four incomplete attempts they recorded the backing track on the fifth take. Onto this they overdubbed tambourine, acoustic guitar, electric guitars and backing vocals. The session took four and a half hours from start to finish. Basic Track: 1 acoustic guitar John , electric guitar George , bass Paul , snare drum and tambourine Ringo.
Overdubs: 2 lead vocal by John, harmony vocals by Paul and George 3 additional backing vocals by John, Paul and George 4 electric guitars George, lead for breaks and first ending; John, rhythm; both play on the duet and coda. They did a straight take with John on the acoustic, and George did all of the overdubs. Also, did Ringo just hit the snare? The drums are just so low in the mix that it sounds only like the snare is being played. Interestingly, George has the high harmony and falsetto.
A little note Martin must have liked it. A life. I agree. Not of my favorites either. I tolerate. Such an odd song at the tail of such a groundbreaking album. I would have thought that George Martin could have convinced John that this bit of misogyny was not a particularly good thing to broadcast to the world. The tambourine just makes it better. And the bassline. The harmonies are great too. I feel like once in a while John would just come up with a song to see what he could get away with…and his voice is so good on this song that they definately get away with the rather malicious lyrics.
Is this a weak song? Absolutely not, but compared with the rest of Rubber Soul? Oh but that is the pure beauty of their music. They, especially John, would just throw whatever they could out in the studio. They had something really special that no one else has ever been able to replicate, and why would you? Such a creepy song. The lyrics always make me think of old blues songs, but even more overt and aggressive.
I heard a rumor at a record fair that this song and Norwegian Wood were part of a group of 5 or 6 songs in the same vein that were either never recorded or just not released. People were saying it was a whole weird series of songs by John that had really possessive lyrics, mostly about his wife. Does anyone have any more info on this, like song titles, or where I could find copies of these songs or any information at all? Horrible song. I tolerated it until I realised that Lennon probably would have done this to Cynthia if she cheated. This is one of my favorites. I agree with Matt. An underrated song.
I lot of people dislike it because John, in one of his passive moods, said he hated it. He liked it well enough at one point to deliver one of his finest vocals. Many rock songs have the same sentiment.
If you asked John at another time he probably would have said it was his favorite song on Rubber Soul. The music is great and the lyrics are awesome. Very underrated in my opinion. I listen to it over and over in my truck, turning it up each time.
Run for Your Life
John you were wrong, this is a great song. Perhaps Johnny Cash did his own version? This song is good because its honest. Although John, or the character whom John is speaking through in this song, would most likely NOT kill his love interest, the words are effective because it blatantly states whats going through his mind, rather than censoring it to be more reasonable.
John captures the frantic, jealous, passion the speaker feels by giving an honest stream of consciousness. I believe that John always kind of considered this song somewhat of a throwaway. This song is insanely underrated. Michelle is the worst song on Rubber Soul? You are entitled to your opinion, of course, but you may be very much alone in it.
