Thread Name: What's your favourite John Lennon song?
Subject: RE: What's your favourite John Lennon song?
I'm certainly not a Beatles fan - I found them soft-centred. I was a Stones man. Of the Beatles, I would have preferred Harrison or Lennon to the others. Starkey was simply barely competent, and McCartney was consistently twee.
Lennon's vocals were not bad at all - "I saw her standing there" is a fine piece of rock singing.
However, surely the thread seeks preferences amongs SOLO Lennon Songs.
I opt for "Cold Turkey" - but the best bit is the guitar line, and I have a little bell going off in my head that he did not play it and that it was Clapton - am I wrong?
