Love does crazy things to a man’s brain. Lennon wrote this song when he was suffering from insomnia. He blamed it being being apart from his wife Yoko Ono at the time. The song beautifully describes the frustration of wanting to sleep desperately, but your mind going crazy with thoughts.
3. I Didn’t Get to Sleep at All – The 5th Dimension
