One of John Lennon’s proudest songwriting moments was “Across the Universe.” It’s a song that came to him out of the blue, and it struck a chord with audiences upon its release. However, Lennon was “disappointed” with the final product, believing the song was “never done properly.”

John Lennon said ‘Across the Universe’ had some of the ‘best lyrics’ he’d ever written

“Across the Universe” was the first composition for John Lennon to be recorded in the five months since “I Am the Walrus”. In All We Are Saying: ​​The Last Major Interview With John Lennon and Yoko Ono by David Sheff, Lennon reflected on writing the song one night in Kenwood. While his wife was sleeping, words were flooding his mind, and he needed to write them down somewhere.
