Some time ago I posted about a discussion between my brother and myself about who was the greatest American songwriter. (Part 1 of that discussion is here, and part 2 here). To sum it up we decided on Paul Simon. Actually, my brother told me it was Paul Simon, I was holding out for Bob Dylan. But we both agreed that John Lennon was the greatest songwriter of our era.
Today would have been John’s 80th birthday.
Happy birthday John.
