Fair to Midland

I have had better days, but I don’t like to complain.  I watched the Netflix special Above Us Only Sky on what would have been John Lennon’s 80th birthday last night and I found it very enjoyable.  It started out as a middle of the road documentary on the making of his Imagine album, but it got better as I began to understand Yoko.  I was always told that she was responsible for the Beatles breaking up and I never liked her singing (if you can call it that), but she was the one person that completed John and without her, he never would have become truly happy.  I learned a lot and it was great to see John in the video singing this song that was voted the song of the century.  It is probably his best song and he is not just a medium songwriter.

Written for Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday where the prompt is “medium”.

  1. I’m glad to know this about Yoko. I hadn’t read a lot about her, but realize I got swept up in thinking of her as a villain. I’m glad there was happiness and love in their relationship and that she finally got credit.

      1. Yea he is probably telling you things you already know like a lot of Beatle books to me…but I still like reading them.
        His book reminds me of Keith’s … because both of them are so open.
