I've been really, really digging this song in the last few days, so I played it to my dad and he said 'it sounds like John Lennon is doing quite a good impersonation of Led Zeppelin.'

I quite agree with that statement, actually!

“You know it’s such a drag to face another day.” My favourite line from the song, which believe it or not I also listened to quite recently. I don’t think it’s a classic Lennon song or anything but I do enjoy the energy it has. Really fun.

Underrated sonng from Walls And Bridges . My ex girlfriend from highschool made fun of the lyrical content a few years ago for being cheesy and obvious, but the vocal delivery is one fore the ages and I didn’t let it get to me.

“You gotta hang on in!” That line has got me through some boring days. a-hard-days-night-george-9

Another line that sticks with me is “I know you know about the Emperor’s clothes.”

I love the way it opens “don’t want to be a draaaag!” Seriously one of my favorite John vocal performances

I'd never heard this one before, I'm definitely a fan. The Zeppelin comparison is a good one, but I'd liken this more closely to Stevie Wonder.

I do hear a bit of Stevie, not so much Zeppelin. (But "Trampled Underfoot" was a bit "Supertition"-ish,  so the comparison makes sense.)

John was big on those r&b records of the day! (As was Bowie, of course)

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr
