The Beatles: John Lennon tells of Bob Dylan influence in ICONIC ‘Help!’ song

Speaking to David Sheff on All We Are Saying, Lennon spoke about this song, and detailed how it came about – citing influences from Dylan mainly.

“It’s one of those that you sort of sing a bit sadly to yourself,” he explained, before going on to recite some of the lyrics.

“‘Here I stand/Head in hand.’ I started thinking about my own emotions.”

On when he started writing with his emotions rather than his business sense, Lennon went on: “I don’t know when exactly it started, like ‘I’m A Loser’ or ‘Hide Your Love Away,’ or those kind of things.

“Instead of projecting myself into a situation, I would just try to express what I felt about myself which I had done in me books.
