In tribute to John Lennon on the 40th anniversary of his death….
John Lennon – Love
Originally released in 1970 on ‘John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band’, this song was one of the most “upbeat” songs from the rather dark and emotional album.
“Love” was released again in 1982, on a new compilation of some of his most memorable solo songs, ‘The John Lennon Collection’.
I chose this for a hew reasons:
- Today is the 40th anniversary of his passing
- Lennon always spoke of peace and love (Love Is All You Need)
- It was originally released 3 days short of exactly 50 years ago (Dec. 11, 1970)
- It was also one of the prominent songs in my Beatles themed wedding (Yes, John Lennon “sang” at my wedding)
Listen to these lyrics or look them up… He really describes what love is, better than anyone else, that I know of….
