What's your least loved vacation song

This was John Lennon's least loved song that he has ever made

According to John Lennon, "Run For Your Life" was directly influenced and inspired by Elvis Presley's 1955 B-side "Baby Let's Play House". The latter was a slightly modified cover of a 1954 song by Arthur Gunter about a boy who longs for a girl. However, the catchphrase Lennon used for "Run For Your Life" took a much darker turn.

Lennon reportedly said that a certain line from Presley's tune caught his ear: "I'd rather see you dead, little girl, than be with another man." The Beatles track was written around that line, said Lennon Rolling Stone in 1970.

It shows: "Run For Your Life" is about a man who tells his girlfriend that he will kill her if she ever becomes unfaithful. (Not really a subject that ages well, to be honest.) The fact that Beatle Paul McCartney described the song as a bit "macho" is perhaps an understatement.

"I never liked Run For Your Life because it was a song I just turned down," Lennon told the music magazine. Fortunately for him, this infamous tune released as part of the album in 1970 Rubber soulwas far from the last song Lennon would write. While his life was too short too soon, the songwriter produced memorable hits for almost a decade until his untimely death on December 8, 1980.
