Covid Island Discs
Day 10: Watching the Wheels, John Lennon
As I watched the video to this tune it made me feel really sad. Lennon, like McCartney, was an amazing talent and this song appeared on the album Double Fantasy which was release after his assassination in 1980. The album is only half decent in that all the songs he did were great while all Yoko’s contributions were ?? (well perhaps it is an acquired taste).
I also relate to this tune because in 2017, after leaving Imagen, I also spent a long time watching the wheels go round and round while writing my book. My conclusion: we live in mad world that’s for sure.
