gimme some truth

     John Lennon would have been 80 years old today. His songs and lyrics are still unfortunately frighteningly relevant, even more so than when he wrote them.

Yes he certainly was way ahead of his time. A Working Class Hero. Thoughts x

    Listening to his early post Beatles albums (particularly Plastic Ono Band and Imagine) and it is clear that almost every track could have been written today and be scarily relevant.
     Seems that Western politicians telling lies to invade and bomb countries aided and abetted by compliant media has been Standard Operating Procedure for decades.
     The song that you reference (Working Class Hero) is no less relevant now, than when it was released in 1970. Something to be, indeed. Enjoy, Lookout and anybody else.
