I know this is a very unpopular opinion, but this has always been my least favourite track on the whole album. Maybe becaus I am just not into folk.

Another of John Lennon's Bob Dylan inspired songs after, I'm a loser, and, you've got to hide your love away, Norwegian wood, is a superb song, obviously inspired by a night of infidelity on Lennon's part(although the song is actually a little unclear as to whether anything really happens between the couple, considering the opening line about,'i once had a girl, or should i say she once had me', to the fact that Lennon, or at least the narrator, has to end up sleeping in the bath!). Anyway, the song/music has a nice smokey feel with George Harrison's lovely sitar the icing on an already brilliant cake. Lennon was already past writing conventional love songs by this time(does he burn the poor girl's house down?), and, Norwegian wood, is another of his excellent contributions to, rubber soul.

One of John's many 10/10s. Just a perfect song. The melody, the witty story with a surprising twist at the end, the gritty vocal/soft acoustic guitar clash, the John/Paul harmony in the chorus, and then you get that extra sitar touch from George.

That's what she gets for turning John down!

Could be Lennon's finest moment. Beautiful song.
