Thread Name: What's your favourite John Lennon song?
Subject: RE: What's your favourite John Lennon song?
Hmmm ...

Well I'm just sittin here watchin the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch em roll ...

I picked that one and not Imagine, because after years and YEARS of it being my favourite Lennon song, the Conservatory now has it on their repertoire list for Grade 8 piano exams. Which means that now, everybody and their next door neighbour wants to play it. As a piano teacher, I've hear it played so awful - sorry, that's often - that now I can only lay back and dream of this perfect enchanted world ... one where NO ONE WILL EVER EVER MASSACRE THAT LOVELY PIECE AGAIN!!!

I just got back from a performance class where it was executed (quite literally) half a dozen times. So I apologize for the rant, but *whew* it was fun to vent this in a semi-safe place far far FAR away from my innocent students. They are improving and they do love it, after all.

Thank you Mudcat
