One of the lesser tracks on Rubber Soul, “Think For Yourself” contains a very dated, rather patronising lyric and rather bland melody, especially for the Beatles around this period. Indeed, although Rubber Soul contains arguably the finest collection of Lennon and McCartney songs, the two songs penned by George Harrison are rather weak. “Think For Yourself”, with it’s demand “you gotta think for yourself/’Cause I won’t be there with you” sounds very much of it’s time, although the song does contain an ingenious chord sequence and, typically, a great introduction. However, it’s marred by a poor melody and trite lyric. Not one of Harrison’s better efforts.
