Hoy John Lennon hubiera cumplido 64 años Oct 9, 2004

When I'm Sixty-Four
(McCartney/Lennon)

When I get older losing my hair,
Many years from now.
Will you still be sending me a valentine
Birthday greetings bottle of wine.

If I'd been out till quarter to three
Would you lock the door,
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four.

You'll be older too,
And it you say the word,
I could stay with you.

I could be handy, mending a fuse
When your lights have gone.
You can knit a sweater by the fireside
Sunday mornings go for a ride,

Doing the garden, digging the weeds,
Who could ask for more.
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four.

Every summer we can rent a cottage,
In the Isle of Wight, if it's not too dear
We shall scrimp and save
Grandchildren on your knee
Vera Chuck & Dave

Send me a postcard, drop me a line,
Stating point of view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say
Yours sincerely, wasting away

Give me your answer, fill in a form
Mine for evermore
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four.

If he were here today... Oct 10, 2004

"You may say I´m a dreamer, but I´m not the only one"...

Y seguro que no se hubiera imaginado que 24 años después de su muerte en todos los rincones del mundo, miles de personas, entre los que me incluyo, beatlemaníaca confesa y perdida, se nos iba a poner la piel de gallina al pensar cuánta falta nos hace, que pensaría si volviera por un ratito y viera toda la violencia que invadió al mundo, la que sale en los diarios y la que no. En fin, yo viajé a Londres dos meses después de que lo mataron y todavía recuerdo como si fuera hoy estar sentada frente al televisor mirando el video de Imagine mientras llorábamos todos, los ingleses y los argentinos, fue en el ´81, y pensar todo los que pasó acá después. En fin, John, por siempre en nuestros corazones.

All we have left is his music.... Oct 12, 2004

Twenty four years have now passed and gone,
Since that young fanatic done what he done.
Tore the heart from a world in need of a beat,
Broke the dream of millions out on the street.
Put an end to a man who declared war had to cease,
Who dreamed of love, of freedom and peace.
The working class hero who rejected class,
This-isms, That-isms and all other trash.
No-one quite like him has taken his place,
There's a Lennon sized hole in the human race.
