I really enjoyed the album Acoustic. I never knew John had such a natural talent for playing the guitar, but he obviously did. He composed these songs in the 70's after the breakup of the Beatles. These tracks sound better when performed acoustically, because I could really understand the lyrics and message behind the song. My favorite track is John Lennon's anthem for peace entitled Imagine. It is one of the best songs ever written and it brings tears to my eyes. I loved the song Watching The Wheels. I haven't heard this song in years. It reminded to cherrish my time on earth because life is short.
My Mummy's Dead is a very touching song about John Lennon losing his mother as a child and the pain he still felt as an adult. Dear Yoko is a very pretty love song from Lennon to his wife. I liked this track very much.
Woman is a Nigger of the World is a song that some people may get offended by because of the title, but I hope they listen to the words before judging it. The lyrics are very powerful. This song is about the urge for equality and respect for women after being treated so badly and unfairly in the past.
Working Class Hero is another great track. This song is about praising how hard it is to make a living with all the distractions in the world and remain true to your principles. I think this is something John Lennon understood well. It amazes me that John Lennon's music is still popular today over twenty years after his death. His songs and the messages in them are timeless.
