Happy birthday John Lennon, on the behalf of the internet

DHello ladies and gentlemen, today, on October the ninth, we're celebrating the 70th birthday of John Lennon, so I figured a couple of songs would suit the occasion.

Imagine if Lennon still were here with us, I'm sure he and Paul would do some pretty kick-ass concerts together. Speaking of Paul, let's start with Paul's ode to John, from McCartney's 1982 album Tug Of War, I bring you Here Today:




Don't be fooled by the title, it is not Lennon-co-written song, it is a song McCartney wrote after he learned of Lennon's cruel fate.
But hey, we are here to wish John happy birthday, so let's do it in George Harrison fashion with It's Johnny's Birthday, from George's massive 1970 album All Things Must Pass:



You might be thinking "well, aren't we going to listen to some of John's music? Well absolutely! Let's look at two major Lennon songs, Strawberry Fields Forever and Imagine:



Found a pretty sweet live video of John preforming Imagine.



So yea, that's all for me for now. Hope you'll join me again for some more celebration of the great and unreleased Beatles music.

On behalf of the whole internet, I wish you a happy birthday, Mr. Lennon
