A Day In The Life, the greatest song ever written. Crank that one up loud in the car and embarrass your 'cool' friends, and then proceed to yell at them to get the f*ck out as they can't appreciate genius. I just got his Acoutist cd too, although I've already got heaps of demos and they really weren't the best selection.

That's not the point. The point is I love John, but I think I finally got over the fact that he's dead. Still I plan to be at Strawberry Fields (the fake one) next year on his 25th anniversary.
wow, lux thanx 4 sharing that~ really!!!~ & i agree w/ u about "a day in the life", i f_ckin' LUV that song~ i was 12 when he was so *bleeping* senselessly murdered & it was the only time i saw my father cry, it was when he was telling me after i got home from school about what had happened~ i love john too, i saw strawberry fields when visiting NYC in '95, it was very surreal yeat so peaceful, was an awesome experience~

again lux, thanx 4 sharing ~

John Lennon was such an incredible person. Not only was his music so unique and beautiful, but John himself was such a beautiful human being. 20 years ago, I came across a book that featured the entire transcripts of the interviews Playboy Magazine did with John and Yoko, in September of 1980. That book forever changed my life, as did he.

To this day, I cannot listen to 'Woman' ~ it just breaks my heart. To hear the songs he recorded in 1980, full of hope and vision of his future...it all just breaks my heart...it's just not fair.

It's so great to see how John touched others here too ~ thanks so much for posting.

Much Love ~
Claudia

Marty and I went to wander around NYC one or two years ago (we try to go every year but it doesn't always work out), and we happened to find ourselves right by the Dakota so we stopped there to sort of look it over. A non-English speaking doorman happened was standing nearby, and I made eye contact with him. He looked at us, and I suppose he assumed we were about to ask him what most people ask him (although we weren't going to ask anything, of course the question was in our minds...)-- he then proceeded to make a 'gun' with his hand and held it to his head, then wordlessly pointed to the archway/area where John was shot, and nodded to us. It was creepy and moving and incredibly sad.

It's such a shame, what happened to him.

Wow - that is incredible. I have been by The Dakota and even in it (GO if you ever have the chance - it is something out of a dream) - I totally got a vibe of Lennon. He was just great. He was a true legend. I wish him to RIP!!!!! Hugs to you Mr. Lennon

I got a weird vibe just standing there looking at that spot. Very odd feeling.

My sister and I went to NYC a couple of years ago (my first time) - we went to see Paul McCartney at MSG - and were only there for a couple of days - but one of the things on my agenda - the first thing I wanted to see - was the Dakota and Strawberry Fields - so yep - it was amazing - and such a vibe in that area - it was profound experience in my life...

I can remember the night that I heard he'd been shot like it was yesterday.

It's funny though--as many times as I've been to NYC, I've never been to the Dakota (seen it--been never been right up to it). I don't really know why but I guess it was that I just didn't want to go to a place associated with the death of such a great man.

Here are a few photos that I took outside of the Dakota on Oct 9 2004 which would have been his 64th birthday. I was in NYC for Columbus weekend.

R.I.P. John Lennon.

I was only just 3 when he died. I don't remember it.

But he is a part of my life, of everyone's life. His music and message are just a part of our everyday exsistance.

Thank you everyone for sharing your thoughts.

People say I'm Crazy doing what I'm doing
Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin
When I say that I'm o.k. they look at me kind of strange
Surely you're not happy now you no longer play the game

People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away
Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me
When I tell them that I'm doing fine watching shadows on the wall
Don't you miss the big time boy you're no longer on the ball?


I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go

People asking questions lost in confusion
Well I tell them there's no problem, only solutions
Well they shake their heads and look at me as if I've lost my mind
I tell them there's no hurry...
I'm just sitting here doing time

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go

Unhappy Man....

I hope the shooting of Dimebag Darrell tonite wasnt a copycat of some twisted a*hole who wanted to get the same attention that David "Waste of humanity" Chapman received 24 years ago when he murdered our beloved John Lennon.

The day that John Lennon was taken from us was the day my childhood ended.
Other than 9/11, it was the most heavy & dark day in my life.
