Is that correct?

 

Well anyway. I have The John Lennon Collection. and I upload it into my mp3 player to change a bit my Beatles music and I just can't get out of my head (Just like) Starting over and Watching the Wheels.

 

How about you guys??

(BTW So many beautiful pics of John and they chose one of his less flaterring ones. I hate it so much that I threw away the cover) a-hard-days-night-john-7

"I'm just a Jealous Guy..."

 

Beautiful piano intro.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

Awesome. You can almost see John with his hands in his back and his head down saying "I'm sorry".

I've been thinking of the right time to mention this, but now seems as good as any. Here's what I've been working on since the Lennon remasters were announced in June: http://www.beatlesbible.com/pe.....non/songs/

It's a work in progress, and there will be broken links here and there. I've just started work on the Mind Games songs; I'm working chronologically through the back catalogue, so Walls And Bridges, Rock 'N' Roll, Double Fantasy and Milk And Honey are currently missing.

Your feedback is always welcome. When it's finished it'll be a fully-contained John Lennon section, with discographies, trivia facts, quotes etc, so stay tuned.

Most of the Mind Games pages don't have any content yet, but yeah, I try to do an article each day. It's not so hard if you set your mind to it, though some days it's a drag. I have a deadline though - I want it to all be ready for when the Lennon remasters are released.

I know I would probably end up giving up on that. I start things and never end up finishing. Plus I have stuff like homework occupying my time. 26 page English booklet, Science assignment and Humanities assignment all due on Friday. Oy vey

Is it particular song that makes it a drag or finding the time?

A bit of both, plus fatigue. Some days I get home from work and I don't feel like going anywhere near a computer, and others I get a bit of a creative burst and can write three or four in one sitting. But the Some Time In New York City articles took me ages because I really don't like the songs all that much, and I had a holiday in the middle of it. I find it definitely helps to actually enjoy what you're writing about.

Also, some of the more significant titles I put off because I know they're going to take a while. I approached Revolution 9 with some trepidation, for example, but once I get started it's usually not too bad. It's the same with all the Lennon/Ono avant garde stuff - I'd like to write about it all, but at the moment it's right at the bottom of my list.

Good work Joe! Right now I'm on more of a Paul solo kick, I've listened to Mull of Kintyre at least 20 times in the last few days. John-wise, I suppose my favorite song right now is Look at Me because really, who am I supposed to be?

Holy Moly, Joe - you have been busy. Can't wait to see the article on Woman.

That is the one I can't get out of my head currently.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Hey, thanks all. Glad you like it so far. The banner needs a bit of work but I'm happy with how the concept turned out. The 1940-1980 lettering needs to be smaller as it clashes with the Beatles Bible logo.

Right. Onwards. Bring On The Lucie!

That's a good idea. I'll keep an eye out for some suitable ones.

Anyway, JL songs I'm on a kick on right now: Beautiful Boy I really love. It's been buzzing around my head for a while now. The lyrics are (aptly enough) beautiful, and I love the way the melody in the chorus tumbles down. It's a shame he never wrote anything similar for Julian.

Actually I thought the same when I heard Ringo with Good Night.. it was like "Let's play with this song it doesn't matter I wrote it for Julian". *But* he can claim Hey Jude is about him. a-hard-days-night-paul-5

 

The famous line of "life is what happens..." is used by many teachers as inspiration to students, and it's incredible that they don't believe it was written by a "rocker". My favorite version is in the movie Mr. Holland's Opus.

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.
