5 On Friday - John Lennon

Today's 5 on Friday from Trav's Thoughts has a built in theme.  This would have been John's 70th Birthday. This music has been a part of my life for more than 45 years. Imagine that - Hapy Birthday John wherever you are.  To join in on the meme, simply go to Trav's and sign in.

Stand By Me

Many of the Lennon videos have disabled video and I really wanted as much separate from the Beatles as I could find. Here is one where you will have to go to the link.


Jealous Guy


And of course, with Blogblast for Peace only 27 days away:

Perfect post, Jamie! I'm a massive John Lennon fan, and Jealous Guy is one of my favorite songs evah. And even though it's technically a Beatles song, I love his 'Julia', for reasons I'm sure you can guess ;-)

I'm a Beatles fan. I have been since the first note I ever heard. I was born in 1964, so I kind of feel like I grew up with them, even though I wasn't really part of the whole invasion and hysteria. But Beatles music has always been in my life.

John Lennon's writing always fascinated me. Paul McCartney's vocals were always my favorites. George Harrison always seemed so quietly mysterious. And Ringo was too much fun.

The Beatles were so much more than music.
