I always hate delving into the "what could have been", however, John's lost album, "Between the Lines" could have been his best effort yet. It would have been the "Walls and Bridges" follow-up and it seemed to have so much potential, but then John reunited with Yoko, then Sean was born, and obviously his 5-year hiatus also ensued. "Tennessee" more than likely would have been the lead single and I would rank it up there w/John's other top-notch solo efforts.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2VdGMsuMNQ" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Yes, there's a touch w/"Watching the Wheels" (which is top-5 John solo song of mine), but this album could have been incredible.... Again..what could have been!

I watched/listened to this - I wonder if he took a liking to Jarvis after the BRITS incident with Michael Jackson in 1996?

Louie - I sometimes wonder how John would have prospered had he been musically active in the later 70s, during the emergence of New Wave.

John was actually channeling his New Wave self through Yoko and some of the acts like B52s acknowledged the influence she had on them at the time. "Walking On Thin Ice", some of Yoko's tracks on "Double Fantasy" and IICR on "Milk & Honey" was how John was more experimental compared to John's track at the time which seemed more nostalgic or easy listening.

Regarding "Between the Lines", "Nobody Told Me" apparently dated back from that period which was early-mid 1975 and he even intended to give that song for Ringo to record. I keep on reflecting what if he never returned to Yoko because more than likely with the immigration issue eventually behind him, he would have been more at liberty to meet up with Paul, George, and Ringo, but some believe George would have declined because evidently he had a lot of disdain towards Paul at the time.

John had a fondness for rock n roll of the period just prior to The Beatles. This was evident immediately prior to his musical hiatus with 'The Rock n Roll' album (1975) and with elements of 'Double Fantasy' (1980).

I like 'Nobody Told Me' with its kind of amazement (or bewilderment) at the world through the eyes of a middle-aged person. I can well imagine Ringo singing a good version of it.

First, you already know what my reaction to this was after my long FB rant, but just to summarize in one mere word.... RUBBISH!


Mallard No. 22, I have never been a fan of John's "Rock N Roll" album. "Stand By Me" was great, but the other songs just seemed so force. But I know he dealt with a lot during that project, including conflicts with Phil Spector and all the substance abuse during that "Lost Weekend" period didn't obviously make any matters better.

It seemed by the early-mid 70s there was this sudden 50s nostalgia, but I wish John continued to push the envelop more and I believe he would have if it wasn't for the inevitable. He in fact was hoping to embark on a 1981 solo tour and rework a few Beatles tracks to modernize them. Now that would have been fascinating! But obviously I can go on and on about what else was pending if 12/8/1980 events never happened. Oh well....

"Nobody Told Me" with Ringo's delivery would have been so perfect and I believe George had originally written "All Those Years Ago" for Ringo as well, but then got altered after John's death. It is unfortunate that during this time Paul and George were at odds, but thankfully Paul put that all aside to help contribute during the recording sessions.

While Louie knows of my hatred of this song, the rest of you don’t. So now you do. I hate this song.

And over a week later I am still trying to completely forget about this abomination!

Anyways, where is everyone? I guess we need Blur to reunite for this entire board to have more consistent activity again!

Yeah.. is it that everyone is simply just busy or there is no longer interests to discuss the Beatles and other music? Or is the main reason that several are disappointed w/"Humanz" and perhaps "Now Now" that has not generated enough traffic/posting? Perhaps "GB&Q" sequel would accomplish that but definitely if Blur reunited in some form, but this is the least activity on any of these forums that I ever can recall!

No I’m here. Did you guys see the Paul James Corden special on Monday? I wished they didn’t show as much as they did on the original carpool karaoke, but it was still a cool little show.

I finally got around to listening to Fuh You. Wow. One of the worst songs Paul has ever written. That was terrible.

I know a couple of you disagree, but my least favorite Beatle track is "Wild Honey Pie" and I never thought Paul could possibly get lower than that and he did with "Fuh You". I know several did not like his mid-80s solo effort, which true was substandard for him, but again "Fuh You" is such an all-time low!

I hope this forum gets active again real soon!
