RE: Favorite Lennon Song

One of my favorite Lennon songs is "Here comes the sun", every time that I hear that song I fall to my knees because the song meens so much to me. Also "Lovely Rita Meater Maid" and "Lady Madonna." And "Let it Be" that song just makes so much scence to me, when i have to fight with people, i just need to tell myself "Let it Be"
Thatswhat I think

RE: Favorite Lennon Song

"Here comes the sun" isn't a John Lennon song, George Harrison wrote and sung it. Don't wanna be a wise as but you gotta give Harrison some credit too.

RE: Favorite Lennon Song

I think Ian b. purposely names those songs, knowing full well who wrote them. If not, I apologize for assuming such. But I think I'm write.

In any case, I do agree with him on "Here Comes the Sun." The others aren't my bag.

My favorite John song is "Mother." Its SUCH a powerful song. I can't remember when I first heard it, but I know I had no clue it was John Lennon's song and I thought, "Jesus, this person is tormented." And it totally, totally moved me. This coming from soneone with a rather stable family. But the song is so beautiful. I get emotional hearing it every time. It says so much about John as well. He liked to portray that hard-ass image a lot, but deep down he was an incredibly sensitive person. Such a song shows that. The singing is breathtaking, and I love the whole raw nature of the song. Perfect. Masterpeice.

RE: Favorite Lennon Song

Really, lan b., why did you name only songs which are not written by John? That's simply not fair - neither to John, nor to George, nor to Paul.
In my opinion it's not necessary to choose a favourite song by anyone of them. Each one is unique. As I'm writing this, I'm listening to "Sunday Bloody Sunday" - I mean, the "Some Time in New York City" album is always said to be nothing special; this is something I could never agree with. I was completely struck when I heard it for the first time some 8 years ago. By the way, somebody says that "Stand by Me" is not John's song - well, so f***ing what? It's the best version I've ever heard (and I've heard many). Just like "Please Mr. Postman" - anyone of you ever heard a better cover?? It drives me crazy, makes me shiver! I myself love every single Beatle song - no matter who wrote it, who sang it and so on. I get so irritated when someone asks me about my favourite - well, I say, it's Hey Bulldog. It appeals to me in the same way Help! does. That says it all, I believe.

RE: Favorite Lennon Song

submitted for your perusal:-
"Hey Bulldog"- not a song that got much interest, but for me one of the songs that defines the early years Lennon: the voice is sharp, the tone in those vocals has that growl developed by devotion to the art of rock vocals, with a hint of his later style shown in the ADT-(automatic double tracking)studio technique. This is so raw-and it has one of the poxiest piano intos ever, echoed greatly by George on guitar, then Paul on bass. The ad-lib Scouse vocals near the end give an "up-yours" finger to the meaning of "song",, but then that's completely in-character right? The lyrics should be political lessons:"What makes you think you're something special when you smile?" and the repeated"you can talk to me" (a premonition of the future rappers maybe??)
