QotD: John Lennon

No. No musicals. I loathe musicals. I never did have a plan for doing one. My cousin made me sit through some fucking musical twice. I just hate them. They bore me stiff. I think they’re just horrible. Even Hair. And they’re always lousy music.

— John Lennon, from The Lost Interviews by Ray Connolly

    Oh so well put. As the only musical I ever liked was ‘Oliver!’ (with Jack Lester, Ron Moody, Oliver Reed et al) I empathise with John’s words. As an avid Beatles fan I would though, wouldn’t I?

    This is probably why I find most of his work so boring. Some of the best stuff I’ve ever sung is from musicals. They’re fantastic. Or can be – I wouldn’t claim universal satisfaction.

  3. So glad to know I’m in good company!

    ah, so he never got into “The Harvey Girls” or “42nd Street”, no wonder…. 🙁

  5. Across The Universe (as in the musical) was quite cool.
