Lennon remembered

No disrespect to John Lennon, but it's 2:55 p.m. and I'm already sick of hearing "Imagine" today.

Yes, he was a great musician. Yes, his death was tragic. I remember the day 25 years ago.

And yes, "Imagine" is a great song. But c'mon, he was resposible for plenty of other great music too. Can we hear some of that today too?

I heard a radio show today that interviewed a guy who was close to lennon and wrote a book, title I forgot, but he was saying that "Imagine" actually did poorly before his death and that he only had one #1 solo hit... something that we don't really hear because of "imagine"

I remember the event but not a whole lot about it. I do remember everyone making a HUGE deal about it. I also remember after that commercials for the Beatles that never seemed to stop. I even remember one of the tag lines in the commercial. It's Paul talking about that he and John sat down and wrote the first 50 songs or so...
