i often wonder this about some folk.

Apart from a babyish flick of the finger to Paul - it's just not good music. imho.

How Do You Sleep?

John Lennon

So Sgt. Pepper took you by surprise
You better see right through that mother's eyes
So Dick was right when they said you was dead
Your one mistake you made was in your head
Tell me, how do you sleep?
Tell me, how do you sleep at night?
You live with straights who tell you you was king
Jump when your momma tell you anything
The only thing you done was yesterday
And since you're gone you're just another day
Tell me, how do you sleep at night?
Tell me babe, how do you sleep at night?
You was king.
Oh, how do you sleep at night?
Oh, how do you sleep at night?

A pretty face may last a year or two
But pretty soon they'll see what you can do
A sound you make is muzak to my ears
You must have learned something in all those years
Oh, how do you sleep? Brother.
Oh, tell me how do you sleep at night?
Jump when your mama tell you anything.
But pretty soon you'll see what you can do.
Oh, how do you sleep at night?
Tell me, how do you sleep at night?
Tell me, how do you sleep at night?
Okay, okay.

Welcome home dad. I know it's going to be a long road to recovery, but you're strong & we'll all be right there with you. Played your favorite..."In My Life" as you were wheeled in & it was go

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn

Well, he was angry at Mr. Beatle the Pop Star & he let him have it. One thing about John...he didn't suffer fools very well. So you think that one's a dud?...Well, y'know...that fella from New Jersey's written his fair share of duds too. Just sayin'...They all do.

Didn't George play guitar on this track?  That says something.

Yes....He played rhythm guitar on it & then overdubbed a lead part in. George actually plays on almost every track on that album. He used George & Ringo extensively on his first two records. Ringo played on the entire Plastic Ono Band album.

Wow...Was anyone else aware that Jesus was a member of the Plastic Ono Band? And...why would he be wearing glasses? I mean...he could easily self-correct any vision discrepancy, could he not?

O'Boogie...do you know anything about this?

I love Jim Keltners drumming

I have always loved Alan White's drumming on the early JL LPs and was surprised to make the connection some years later that he was the drummer in Yes...a very different style

Where's Band On The bloomin' Run?

Might be a problem because of all the other people on there.

I'm sure it used to be the case that living people other than the Royal Family couldn't appear on stamps.

the ONE record in his catalog that actually deserves to be on there isn't....Cheeky

Well, at least they didn't put Broad St on there...Worst solo album made by any of the four.
