I think that falls more under "song I hate that everyone else loves." If you pressed him, I'm sure he wouldn't say it's a bad song, just massively overrated.
you did not read the article.

Quick note to anyone who doesn't actually read the article: This isn't anti-Beatles or even anti-Lennon. He states he is otherwise a fan of them/him. Just not this song... and I can understand why.

Because it's part of the AVclubs "HateSong" ... it's the entire point of the interview. Haha.
Haha, just read the excerpt and said WUT.
Kind of interesting feature.

Could be one of the most overrated songs of all time, the lyrics are dumb.

If anyone knows about cheesy lyrics and insipid songs, it certainly is Frank Turner

Harrison is easily the best Beatle.

The Best of George Harrison is a back to front solid album. I don't have anything against the other ones, and honestly need to expand my Beatles knowledge, but I loved that album.

pretty sure in the song john doesn't say anywhere 'we should all have no possessions' - he just says imagine a world without it. lennons solo stuff is amazing, and the song mother always makes me well up.

as for frank turner, go back to million dead. i liked you then.

Already one or two people who don't seem to have read the quote in Jason's post, never mind the whole article. This is all set to make the average news thread read like Mark Twain, hah.

i just really love the idea of this column.

as far as Frank's comment, I can totally see his point. honestly, I was never a solo Lennon fan and Harrison was my favorite Beatle and i'm already sick of this song at the age of 26.

soooo, I back you Frank!
It is a cool idea for a column...I'm late to the party and didn't know about it before this. But yeah, I also agree with Frank. That song is fucking annoying and yeah, patronizing considering the source. However, the source is also why people chose to put it on a pedestal. A much beloved artist, killed well before his time, it's hard for fans not to have "blinders" on I guess.
