The song, while credited to ” Lennon_McCartney “, was primarily a John Lennon composition.Contents;1 Background;2 Personnel;3 Covers;4 Notes;5 References;6 External links;Background The song’s lyrics establish a threatening tone towards the singer’s unnamed girlfriend (referred to throughout the song as “little girl”), claiming “I’d rather see you dead, little girl, than to be with another man.” The line was taken from an early Elvis Presley song, ” Baby, Let’s Play House ” (written by Arthur Gunter). Lennon designated this song as his “least favourite Beatles song” in a 1973 interview and later said it was the song he most regretted writing. He also stated that the song was one of George Harrison ‘s favourite songs on Rubber Soul at that time, despite Lennon’s dislike of it.Lennon would revisit this theme in a more apologetic fashion with his post-Beatles song ” Jealous Guy “.Personnel John Lennon _ vocal, acoustic rhythm guitar;Paul McCartney _ harmony vocal, bass;George Harrison _ harmony vocal, lead guitar;Ringo Starr _ drums, tambourine;Personnel per Ian MacDonald ;MacDonald criticised the vocal performance and added these comments about the guitar: “The guitar-work, some of which is badly out of tune, is similarly rough, the piercingly simplistic blues solo suggesting that the player was not Harrison but Lennon himself.” ;Covers A 1966 version of “Run for Your Life” performed by Nancy Sinatra was released on her album Boots. Although it did not chart nationally, this version experienced regional success at such stations as WPTR in Albany, New York.The song was also recorded by Gary Lewis & the Playboys on their album, “She’s Just My Style”, which was released in March 1966. Johnny Rivers also released the song in 1966 on his live album…And I Know You Wanna Dance. Thee Headcoatees also covered it on their album “Girlsville” in 1991.In the early 1990s, the song was banned by Ottawa radio station CFRA for its misogynistic message. When the radio station was asked if it had also banned Presley’s ” Baby, Let’s Play House “, the program director confessed to not being familiar with that song. Upon listening to the Presley song, however, the program director banned it as well.
