Default Anyone Else a Fan of This Song?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wv3ic...eature=related

"God", by John Lennon

I really think it shows how John felt at the time after the Beatles broke up, and basically his entire outlook on life. He didn't need ANYTHING else, or believe in anything else outside of he and Yoko, as odd as that may seem to some. Great lyrics, great piano play, and the way the song makes you think, makes this song a 4.5/5 for me.

"God is a concept by which we measure our pain"

First line and it is so controversial, so strong, so brilliant in so many ways. This song is just one of many that shows his brilliance.

Very controversial, yet he says so much... Brilliant in a way that you really can't put words on.

Wow.

Never would have thought we would have anything in common. Until just over a year ago, for about 4 solid years literally all I listened to was classic rock. Anything from the Loving Spoonful, to the Animals, to Johnny Cash, to the Beatles, all of their solo stuff, John, Paul, George, and Ringo. Greatest hits on every one of them, lol. I could go on for hours, but I loved 60s and early 70s especially. My favorite bands from the 70s are CCR, Rush, Steve Miller Band, and ELO.

Good to know you have great taste in music.
