458 – John Lennon – Watching The Wheels (1981)
Written by John Lennon
Produced by John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Jack Douglas
Label – Geffen
The most famous house husband of the 70s celebrates a life away from the industry in this moving piano ballad. Lennon was at his most self assured, fulfilled, and the lines, particularly the pronounced “I just had to let it go”, feel like the words of a man free of his shackles, ready to face the world on his own terms. The real tragedy is that this outstanding song was released posthumously.
