5) WORKING CLASS HERO

This represents how John was. It's just him, playing the guitar beautifully and singing so well. He was a good guitar player, singer and songwriter which all comes together in Working Class Hero. And he's saying something that's so important for that class of people, and for everybody.

 

4) MOTHER

If Working Class Hero was about where he came from, this speaks of his childhood, how he was created as a person - Mother left him, father left him, and that line - Don't do what I have done - is a message to others. A very very strong song.

 

3) IMAGINE

People say, Oh this is simple, the chords are simple. Yes it is! On a very basic level were all very simple beings. How do we breather, do we breathe in waltz time? This is like breathing, its a very simple but very important song.

 

2) WOMAN

Woman means a lot to me because he's talking to me. I get very emotional when I hear it. After Johns passing, not straight after because I was sitting at home, but afterwards when I would go out, I would hear it in a shop John singing loud, on the radio. It would make me feel very choked up.

 

1) WATCHING THE WHEELS
This is something that everybody should hear because its saying that its alright not to be competitive. Just relax baby! And I really like that. Hes saying hes relaxed, for the first time. His whole life was very driven, and now he's saying, I'm just watching the wheels.
