John Lennon didn’t like one of the songs from The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
He said creating the song was “a job of work.”
Despite this, John garnered some joy from making the song.
The Beatles‘ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is one of the most acclaimed albums of all time. Despite this, John Lennon criticized one of the songs he wrote for the album. Notably, the track was partly inspired by a Kellogg’s cereal commercial.

The book All We Are Saying: The Last Major Interview with John Lennon and Yoko Ono is an interview from 1980. In it, John was asked about “Good Morning Good Morning.” “Good Morning’ is mine,” he said. “It’s a throwaway, a piece of garbage, I always thought.”
John explained what inspired some of the song’s lyrics. “The ‘Good morning, good morning’ was from a Kellogg’s cereal commercial,” John recalled. “I always had the TV on very low in the background when I was writing and it came over and then I wrote the song.”
The book Lennon on Lennon: Conversations with John Lennon includes an interview from 1968. During the interview, John was asked about “draggy tracks.” “It’s not draggy tracks,” he said. “It’s like draggy tracks as opposed to just completely enjoying it. And that’s the job I’ve chosen to do, is to record and write songs.”

John then commented on “Good Morning Good Morning.” “I mean, when I say I wrote ‘Good Morning Good Morning’ or something like that, and I didn’t like it and I didn’t enjoy it, I mean I didn’t enjoy it as a whole; it was a job of work,” he revealed. “But I got enjoyment from doing it.”

The track’s parent album, "Sgt. Pepper", reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for 15 weeks, staying on the chart for 233 weeks in total.

"Sgt. Pepper" was No. 1 in the U.K. for 28 weeks, remaining on the chart for 277 weeks altogether.

“Good Morning Good Morning” had an impact on pop culture. The Monkees’ Micky Dolenz covered it on his album Remember. Meanwhile, The Flaming Lips recorded the track for the album With a Little Help from My Friends.
