Lennon’s original version of In My Life was based around a Liverpool bus route, which he later referred to as: “the most boring sort of 'What I Did On My Holidays Bus Trip' song.” McCartney helped rework it to what would later become your fifth favourite Beatles song. The pair argued over who wrote the melody, but its undoubtedly one of the most beautiful in The Beatles' catalogue.
Mojo magazine went as far as to name it the best song of all time in 2000.
