hi there, dear lunatics!
i would like to invite you for discussion one more time. i am rather exited for your comments!
let´s try to create a new john lennon:
what does he think and feel about the state of mankind?
how does he express this in lyrics and music?
how does he perform?
how does he work with the media?
does he act alone or does he cooperate with musicians in the global scene ( if yes- with whom) ?
after all, how can he touch people and unite them?

It's difficult to answer.
I think the magnitude of an artist is also in simplicity. Lennon was not complicated, his poetry touch still today all hearts of people also because he seems to speak to everyone , without dstinction.
. . . and then there is always that part of mystery where nobody can find answers, we can also listen to Lennon's music and let the music accompany us in a distant world, in dreams and thoughts. . . .away from our daily labours, i think this
. . i always moved by this song for ex, because he interprets our intimate feeling, when you love somone. . .
i agree, dolce. simplicity is important for those artists who want to bring their message not only to the elitish circles but make it reachable for all people.
simplicity as something to prevent that lyrics become a word´s game for the so called intellectual race which wants to be different from ordinairy people.
