John Lennon and Paul McCartney had a habit of writing songs about each other. Although they worked closely as songwriting collaborators during the early years of The Beatles, their partnership began to fracture as each man found his unique point of view. Beatles songs occasionally made reference to each other (Lennon’s ‘Glass Onion’ was a meta-take on The Beatles’ catalogue, including making the claim that “the Walrus was Paul”), but Lennon and McCartney really started to write about each other once the band was over.Across their first solo studio albums, Lennon and McCartney traded jabs in the form of songs. McCartney took umbrage with Lennon’s preachy ways and wrote ‘Too Many People’ to take him down a peg. Lennon responded with the vitriolic ‘How Do You Sleep?’, the most direct attack that either man would create.
