Imagine This: John Lennon Should Be 70 Tomorrow

 

Give me some tiny glasses & I've got this look down.

 

Tomorrow should be the 70th birthday of John Lennon. Of course, he was unjustly robbed of his life by The Scumbag Asshat Killer Who Shall Not Be Named, who was recently denied parole for the sixth time. So let’s all celebrate that he will probably be incarcerated for the remainder of his life. That is a good thing.

Regardless, Lennon’s murder no doubt robbed the world of several more years of music, not to mention robbing a family of a loving father. For me, one of the most endearing things about Lennon is the fact that, no matter what everyone said, he stuck with his wife Yoko Ono through thick and thin. I mean, the world accused her of breaking up the biggest band the world has ever seen. He easily could have bailed on her, but he didn’t. That makes him a big time stand up guy in my book. Do I particularly like Yoko? Not really, but I really respect their life together.

While I think many people were a bit underwhelmed with Lennon’s solo work, there are quite a few gems to be found in it. There’s “Imagine”, which is truly a beautiful piece of music but in my book, not in the top five. What is in the top five? Glad you asked.

The Cinematically Correct Top Five John Lennon Songs

5. “Jealous Guy”

4. “#9 Dream”

3. “Watching The Wheels”

2. “Instant Karma”

1. “Mind Games”

Honorable mention: “Woman”, “Stand By Me”, “(Just Like) Starting Over”, “Imagine”

    I can really relate to Watching the Wheels right now:
    “When I say that I’m o.k. well they look at me kind of strange/
    Surely you’re not happy now you no longer play the game”

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is important and
    all. However think about if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts
    more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with
    images and videos, this site could undeniably be one
    of the most beneficial in its niche. Fantastic blog!
