I read somewhere online that Lennon's mom died in a red dress, is that true?

There's a mention of it if you read here: http://www.songfacts.com/detai.....hp?id=9759

The supposed source, the Anthology book, contains no mention of Yes It Is as far as I can tell.

If anyone goes to see Nowhere Boy, can they see what colour dress Julia is wearing at the time of the accident (sorry for the spoiler, but I suppose it's a well-known story)? Not that that means Yes It Is was written about her - I'm pretty skeptical about that.

I did read that her favorite color was scarlet, but that doesn't prove anything. He probably picked red as an opposite of blue. Actually, orange is the opposite of blue, but "please don't wear orange tonight" just doesn't flow the same.

Hello!!! could it be that Lennon  could be sub-consciencly  referencing  his first wife?  Lets think outside the box here.


It could also be   reference  to Jane Asher ( Peter Asher's  Sister / Peter &Gordon who also recorded at Abbey Road Studios

and who had a  hit with " A World without Love, written by Sir Paul)

I don't think he can hear you. Laugh He hasn't posted since April. I agree that it could have been subconsciously done.

I do what I can. ;) I think it's funny that you decided to adopt such an old thread!

8trackgdesk - Sorry, I misread what you wrote the first time. Ok, so he's asking Cynthia not to wear red. Doesn't really answer why. I'm not convinced that it is a deliberate reference to his mother. I like the song, but I think it's one of his work songs with no deep meaning.

I like delving back from time to time as there are some interesting threads that maybe some missed first time round. Not sure how I'd actually rate this particular one in terms of "interesting" but it caused me to go searching for an answer. And it's livened things up Laugh
