It was a night of ABC viewing tonight-even though i've got it floating around the house somewhere felt compelled to watch the john lennon making of imagine thing on telly tonight.But it was though tonight i watched it for the first time and really SAW john as an actual person-if that makes sense.Hard to believe that he was only 31 when that was made.And he was feeling every song-you can hear the emotion in his voice.For the first time ever i was moved to tears hearing "jealous guy"-it's never had that effect on me before.What's the difference??-maybe i'm just turning into a sooky old thing in middle age or something.How sad that yoko has had to spend these last 25 years without her man.Because if you take the whole"john and yoko" crap away they were just two people who loved each other immensely.
She was Yoko's friend and personal assistant and she basically insisted that she have an affair with John. It was only for a few months. It was when John went off the rails a little and moved to L.A. and took heaps of drugs and went to parties. I think Yoko figured that he needed to get away from her and be with someone else for a while. She probably decided that if he was going to have an affair with someone she'd rather it be someone she knew and was effectively controlling. John and Yoko referred to it as John's "Lost Weekend" (even though it went for a few months)
I haven't seen Imagine (or the making of) for years but it always used to make me cry.
ah,yes-the lost weekend-isn't it funny how when something's to do with music that it becomes something of interest,or an event-but let's face it-john lost the plot-he and harry nilsson together!But wouldn't you love to be a fly on the wall to hear what rubbish they were going on with just for fun?Well what a weird thought that is-perhaps i should go to bed .
