18/11/13 – John Lennon – #9 Dream

John Lennon

#9 Dream is one of John Lennon’s post Beatles great moments – it seems to actually be the dream as well as the song. The melody is out of this world, the production is magnificent, the chord changes Lennon’s genius.

Released in 1974, it was the second single from the Walls And Bridges album. It reached the Top 10 in the US and the Top 30 in the UK. The first single from the album, Whatever Gets You Thru the Night only reached the Top 40 in the UK, but it went to Number 1 in the USA, his only post Beatles single that did in his lifetime.
