Remembering Lennon

Ever since I was a young girl my parents, especially my dad has en-grained in me what good music is. I truly was born in the wrong era because as a kid I never ever was able to understand or relate to music that was “trendy” or popular at the time. I was the kid who watch THE WHO’s TOMMY, The Yellow Submarine and The Labyrinth at such a young age. Movies that perhaps not many my age understood or bothered to even watch.

Today is the anniversary of John Lennon’s death. He died in 1980, before I ever was born, before my parents even met – before mom even was in high school, and yet his music speaks volumes to me. To this day I can’t listen to Imagine, Julia or Beautiful Boy without feeling some sort of sinking emotion in my chest.

I thank my dad for passing down his taste in music to us.
