John Lennon on "Across the Universe"

"I like 'Across the Universe,' too. It's one of the best lyrics I've written. In fact, it could be the best. It's one of the best. It's good poetry, or whatever you call it. Without tune, it stands. The ones I like are ones that stand as words, without melody. They don't have to have any melody. It's a poem, you could read them."

Cold Spring Harbor said...

In the late 1970’s, John Lennon owned a house in Cold Spring Harbor area. This is where he stayed until his assassination in 1980. Due to the time he spent here, this place influenced for sure his compositions, or at least, his way of being.
