Hans Hot 100 Beatles Songs: #85: ‘ Yer Blues’- ‘Yer Blues’ is a John Lennon song [credited to Lennon- McCartney] on The White Album – one of 13 songs from that album to crack the Hans Hot 100. This parody of blues music- was written by John during The Beatles trip to India- which turned out to be a very productive trip at least musically. A lot of songs which ended up on The White Album were written in India. Like with ‘I Want You [She’s So Heavy]- this is a song which took a few years to grow on me. I wasn’t used to such rawness at the time.
