Those who know me, know of my love for the Beatles.  Today would have been John Lennon's 70th birthday.  Imagine is hands down my favorite Lennon tune, but Beautiful Boy is on my favorite list.  I loved when this song is used in Mr Holland's Opus.  Makes me cry every time I see it.   Here are two videos, first of John Lennon singing Beautiful Boy and the second is the scene from Mr Holland's Opus.   

John Winston Lennon
9 October 1940 - December 8, 1980

Were any of you alive at the time of Lennon's death?  Do you remember where you were when you heard the news?

I love Beautiful Boy too (and Mr. Holland's Opus).

Have you visited the Imagine spot in Central Park?

Yeah I was alive. I think I was in 5th or 6th grade. I remember thinking "wow he must have been more famous than I had thought". He had some early 80"s solo career going on at the time.
