"Think for Yourself" is a song by the English rock band the Beatles. It was first released on the band's 1965 album Rubber Soul.[1][2] It was written by the band's lead guitarist George Harrison. Some people think that the song tells the listener to think independantly in a political way, but it can also be seen as a love song.[3] The song had influences from Bob Dylan.[4][5] The song also has a fuzz bass played by Paul McCartney.[6]
