What does John Lennon mean to me?
The first time I heard The Beatles even as a kid I knew they had something different to all the other records and artists my parents and my brothers from Jamaica were playing. John Lennon's 'Imagine' as a song always stood out for me, the quality, simplicity, truth and heart its lyrics contain touched me then, as they still do today. You can't help but sing along. The ultimate pop song...
What does the song you're singing mean to you?
I love John Lennon's song 'Living On Borrowed Time' it's sentiment effortlessly maps out my basic journey through life. As much as I may plan for tomorrow, we really only have the here and now, as tomorrow isn't guaranteed. I try my very best not to worry about things too much, as we're all living on borrowed time...
