Saw Styx last night. Good show.

John Lennon wrote some totally unlistenable garbage.
But he also wrote some touching songs.

This one is simple, and somehow the tune leaves you hanging.. I think.. in some way I can't quite describe (a music expert might be able to say)

But something about it is beautiful to me.
It's the music I just know I'm going to hear as I lay dying some day.

This next one must have been from his "primal scream therapy" days. It disintegrates into complete nonsense by the end.
But the first half is sublimely lovely. I can't think of many phrases sung so lighter-than-air.

Conclusion: John Lennon didn't know how to finish songs.
If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on Harry Potter's face, forever.
