In the middle of a cloud

This being the 25th anniversary of Mr Lennon's murder, they've been discussing him and playing his songs this morning on Radio 2. Since I was born sometime in the 60s, he was a huge influence on my life. Because he was the intelligent one, of course he was my favourite Beatle. I was in school when I found out he'd been killed. There was a note on the bulletin board. For weeks later a lot of the guys wore black armbands. All this time later, it still seems impossible of a thing to have happened. He gave us some great music, with and without the Beatles. In alphabetical order, here are the solo songs I like best:
  • #9 dream
  • Dear Yoko
  • Gimme some truth
  • Give peace a chance
  • God
  • Happy xmas
  • How do you sleep
  • Imagine
  • Instant karma
  • Mind games
  • Nobody told me
  • Power to the people
  • Watching the wheels
  • Whatever gets you through the night
  • Woman is the nigger of the world

    We've been talking about that a lot in chorus lately. We're going to be singing his "Happy Christmas" song at out chorus concert next week.

    That's so cool. That song is beautiful. Other than that and "Imagine," do you know any of Lennon's other songs?

    I don't recognize any of the other songs on your list. Of course I know quite a few songs from the Beatles, but I'm not sure if I've heard any others just by Lennon. If I have, I can't think of any right now.
