"Look at Me" is a song written and performed by John Lennon, from his solo debut album John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band. Written during the White Album period which was from 1967-1968. It was shelved until 1970, when it was chosen to be included on his debut album. It was later released, but in a different form, on the John Lennon Anthology and his compilation album Acoustic.

The pattern of the song is fairly prominent throughout the song. It was built from a finger-picking technique that Lennon used throughout his previous songs while with The Beatles, Dear Prudence, Happiness Is a Warm Gun, and Julia, all of which were also written during the White Album sessions. Lennon learned the song's finger-picking guitar style (known as 'Travis-picking') from the Scottish musician Donovan. who was with Lennon at the time at Rishikesh, India.[1]
