The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: January 25, 1965 (Monday)

“Norwegian Wood” began to be written by John Lennon while on a skiing vacation in St. Moritz in the Swiss Alps with his wife Cynthia and producer George Martin and his wife between January 25th and February 7th, 1965.  “It was during this time that John was writing songs for ‘Rubber Soul,’” George Martin recalls, “and one of the songs he composed in the hotel bedroom, while we were gathered round, nursing my broken foot, was a little ditty he would play to me on his acoustic guitar.  He’d say, ‘What do you think of this one?’  It had a slightly sick lyric, which was very apt to me nursing my injured toe.  The song was ‘Norwegian Wood.’”
