John Lennon's Real Love


It's been a John filled day but thats what happens when one of the greats is taken from us too early. This post is something i've been wanting to do and share for sometime now and today seems like an appropriate time to do so.
John Lennon's song Real Love which was ignored by Lennon and forgotten until the sixth take was used on the 1988 Documentary Imagine and was later re-imagined by the remaining Beatles as a tribute to Lennon and used fore the release of the Beatles documentary, is actually comprised of three original Lennon songs. I believe it all happened around 1977 with a hand held recorded at his home, Lennon began writing and as it happens with writing fragments arise and then are pieced together for the final completion. These three songs are Real Life, Baby Make Love To you, and Boys and Girls. This is some of John Lennon's realest and rarest work and i wouldn't take this post for granted. Download these songs, listen to them, cherish them, and keep them with you for long, long time. Put it on with the lights low for some lady and she might just want to marry you, use with caution. Just remember who hooks up for real for real.
