Remembering John

It was 30 years ago today….yes, 30 years, hard to believe,
that some loser came up to the Beatles legend and asked him
to simply sign his album cover.
John Lennon obliged. A nice guy he was.
A few hours later that same loser….well, you know the rest,
and the world lost one of the greatest thought-provoking musicians of our time.

Today The Wit Continuum remembers John Lennon.
October 9, 1940 – December 8, 1980.

Imagine all the people…
Living life in peace…

Hope you are still imagining….wherever you are…

A Day in The Life

Posted in Current events, Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2010 by Mj Rains

John Lennon’s  A Day in The Life fetched $1.2m.

The double-sided sheet of paper with notes written in felt marker and blue ink was sold at Sotheby’s in New York.

The lyric sheet also contains some corrections and other notes penned in red ink.

The song – co-written with Paul McCartney – is the final track on the band’s 1967 Sgt Pepper album.

The buyer was an anonymous American telephone bidder. The lyric sheet had previously belonged to Mal Evans, the Beatles’ road manager.

According to the auction house, the previous record for a sale of Beatles lyrics was All You Need Is Love, which fetched $1m (£655,450) in 2005.

Rolling Stone magazine listed A Day in the Life at number 26 in its compilation of the greatest 500 songs of all time. The album went on to win four Grammy awards.

Ah….my favorite Beatles’ song.
