I really like (Just Like) Starting Over, and Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy) but the last time I listened to it, I had a crying upwelling right after "I cant wait to see you come of age" or whatever it says.


Agggh...I first heard that song on Mr. Holland's Opus and was getting all weepy for his performance of what was turning out to be a beautiful song for his son, but when he got to the part "I can't wait to see you come of age," my thoughts turned to John and I just lost it.

As for me, I can't ever see myself getting tired of Watching The Wheels. I like the whole "yeah, you just keep talking, I'll be over here moving on with things" attitude of the song.

It is *so weird* to read his article dated Nov. 29, and have it focus on John.  I'm not asking for a bank holiday, but...

I Personally hate the sequencing of Imagine, But I liken the first 3 songs on side 2 to The 2nd disc of the White Album

Beautiful Boy just gave me some serious goosebumps. That's sad, we all see him as John Lennon the musician, but Sean probably has no memories of his real father outside of the music. You'd also figure he wouldn't be able to connect with John's music like we can because it's probably too emotional for him.

It can't be that bad. I think it's entirely possible Sean has memories of his father, and anyways, there's Yoko there to fill in the gaps. This is all conjecture, anyways, but even if John's music stirred a lot of emotions within Sean, I can't imagine him turning his back completely on it, because it came from a different point in John's life for one (before Sean),  and for another, it's one of the finite things that Sean has to remember his dad by. So if the emotional attachment might not be there, the curiosity about his dad might be.

I'm not saying that he completely turned his back on his music, but I read something somewhere, maybe in John's bio by Philip Norman, where Sean talks about not being able to listen to Sgt. Pepper if a friend were to put it on or something because it would be too emotional for him. I'm sure Sean has heard ALL of John's music, but he was still robbed of a father, so it can't be easy for him.

The music of the Beatles and his solo work, especially Double Fantasy, Probably bring up mess loads of Emotions that he Frankly think he would prefer not to feel and alot of Memories he would rather forget
