The Beatles - I'm a Loser
"I'm a Loser" is a song by The Beatles originally released on Beatles for Sale in the United Kingdom and on Beatles '65 in the United States. Written by John Lennon, and credited to Lennon/McCartney, it was considered for release as a single until Lennon wrote "I Feel Fine".
According to music critic Richie Unterberger, while the lyrics tell a story of romantic rejection, "I'm a Loser" is one of the first Beatles' compositions that "goes beyond young love" including "the hypocrisy of keeping up a happy face when your world's falling down".
In his 1980 Playboy interview, Lennon said the song was "me in my Dylan period" and added, "Part of me suspects I'm a loser and part of me thinks I'm God Almighty. [Laughs.]" Unterberger said the song was "notable for being perhaps the first Beatles' song to directly reflect the influence of Bob Dylan, thus nudging folk and rock a little closer together toward the folk-rock explosion of the following year." Musicologist Alan Pollack said the song contained "a stronger blend of folk elements than almost anything else The Beatles had done to-date."
