You Say It's Your Birthday

Today is John Lennon's birthday.

He would have been 71.

Very cool. Thanks for posting this video.

Missing John (and George too)

Lennon, Beatles ... well there it is. Impossible to get over.

This video, which like so much of the music on your site, I haven't seen before. It gets right at the Magic that was John & the Beatles -- that hint of what could have been is heartbreaking, and that the other 3 would work on the song with the scratchy demo vocal speaks real well of them all I think. I pick up not one hint of exploitation and John would be touched, I am sure of it. What a kick-ass band they were.

I'm likewise fond of this here video, which treats Yoko with the respect I (personally) think she deserves & hints at what we lost by not knowing that this wonderful couple was alive and well and living off the coast of Ireland ...

Thanks for remembering John's B-day, Alex; my day is better for it.
