and now for the songs — September 11. 2021

113) John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band — “Love”

On this 20th anniversary of 9/11, the only thing I could think of to play that was remotely appropriate was John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band‘s “Love” from 1970, one of the most beautiful, delicate and consoling songs ever written. Even if it is about Yoko. No primal screaming here!

“Love is real, real is love. . . . Love is wanting to be loved. . . . Love is asking to be loved. . . . Love is needing to be loved.”
