Forgotten Favorites: John Lennon’s “Nobody Told Me”

John Lennon - "Nobody Told Me" (Polydor, 1984)

“Most peculiar, mama…”

For whatever reason, the conversation around the dinner table last night brought up the expression: “mama told me there’d be days like this” (though I’m not sure exactly why).

In my music-addled brain, the natural progression was to counter with “nobody told me there’d be days like this.”

Just as my dad would use unfamiliar words at the dinner table — and make us look them up in the dictionary — the kids were required to step up to the iTunes and set [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]John Lennon[/lastfm]’s posthumously released song to rolling…

They prefer that over me singing the song to them, for some reason.

“Strange days, indeed…”

    Another classic song I remember and I believe I still have this single I originally bought when it first came out (with the above jacket; now that’s nostalgia). How many also remember the song “Woman” which came out just before he was shot in 1980. “Strange days indeed!”
