      The psychedelic Beatles song written about John Lennon’s extra-marital affair

        Title should have been "about one of John Lennon's extra-marital affairs." 😂

          What?! He lit the fire and burned it down? Never realised that. Was that a joke?

            Dylan whined and complained that Lennon ripped him off with this song, claimed it emulated his songwriting style to the point of stealing, LOL.  Do you agree that's what happened?  I don't--this was John's original song.  And it's excellent.

              Yes, Paul suggested burning the place down for the song. John never burned anyone's place down in real life.

                Dylan may have influenced him, but John didn't rip him off or plagiarize anything.
