BEHIND THE GROOVES: a music blog by Jeff Harris

On this day in music history: February 21, 1966 - “Nowhere Man” by The Beatles is released. Written by primarily by John Lennon (with assistance from Paul McCartney), it is recorded October 21-22, 1965 in Studio Two at Abbey Road in London, UK. Lennon will come up with the song after spending five hours trying to write a song without success. Finally, the words and melody come to him all at once. In the US, the song is left off of the “Rubber Soul” album and instead is released as a stand alone single (b/w “What Goes On” #81 Pop). “Nowhere Man” will peak at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 on March 26th.
