Covid Island Discs
Day 152: Salt water wells in my eyes, Julian Lennon
He certainly inherited his Dad’s voice. Kind of sad that John Lennon really never connected with Julian. I wonder what Julian made of John’s song “Beautiful Boy” which was about his other younger son Sean that he had with Yoko Ono (Covid Island Discs Day 176). Another thought about this song is it was written in 1991 and contains the lines:
I have lived for love, now that’s not enough.
For the world I love is dying (and now I’m crying)
Time is not a friend (no friend of mine), cause friends we’re out of time and it’s slowly passing by.
Wow this was written in 1991 so quite along way ahead of its time. If Julian thought we were out of time then, imagine what he must think now as we watch the worst-case predictions of global heating come to pass.
