Today would have been John Lennon’s 74th birthday. It SHOULD have been his 74th birthday. The Beatles have always been a really important part of my life, so his birthday and the anniversary of his death are always a little difficult for me. He didn’t overdose or commit suicide, he was taken away. Creating some of his best work and living life with the love of his life, his talent and his legacy were cut short.
I’m really sorry my blowdryer didn’t work during this trip….
So today, dear John, I’m celebrating you.
If you’re not familiar with his work, here are some of my fmavorite John Lennon songs (in no particular order and probably missing a ton because, obviously).
Honorable Mention: Anything else Lennon/McCartney.
Any big ones I’m missing? Let me know in the comments!
