Whatever gets you through the night it's alright, it's alright
Lennon’s lover May Pang told the Radio Times in 2005
At night he loved to channel-surf, and would pick up phrases from all the shows. One time, he was watching Reverend Ike, a famous black evangelist, who was saying, “Let me tell you guys, it doesn’t matter, it’s whatever gets you through the night.” John loved it and said, “I’ve got to write it down or I’ll forget it.” He always kept a pad and pen by the bed. That was the beginning of ‘Whatever Gets You thru the Night’.
