Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Written by lead guitarist George Harrison , it was Harrison's second composition in the Indian classical style, after " Love You To ", and was inspired by his stay in India in late with his mentor and sitar teacher, Ravi Shankar. Recorded in London without the other Beatles, the song features Indian instrumentation such as sitar, tambura , dilruba and tabla , and was performed by Harrison and members of the Asian Music Circle. The recording marked a significant departure from the Beatles' previous work; musically, it evokes the Indian devotional tradition, while the overtly spiritual quality of the lyrics reflects Harrison's absorption in Hindu philosophy and the teachings of the Vedas. The song was Harrison's only composition on Sgt. Pepper , although his endorsement of Indian culture was further reflected in the inclusion of yogis such as Paramahansa Yogananda among the crowd depicted on the album cover.
A song will usually capture your attention for one of two reasons: a catchy tune, or lyrics that really resonate with you. This is why, when writing a song , you need to pay attention not just to the melody line, but also the words that you use. If you are a beginning songwriter, you can actually practice creating melody by using placeholder lyrics. This can be any existing set of lyrics, such as other songs or poems.
