Tomorrow is John Lennon's Birthday...

...So have a peaceful day!  He would have been 70 years old!

Google made a little homage to him with their first ever video "doodle."


Gon't know who John Lennon was?  Here's a little bit of Information...

He was a member of The Beatles and was credited with much of their songwriting along with Paul McCartney.

Who are The Beatles?  (okay, first let me catch my breath...)

The Beatles were a rock band that created many, many, many songs together.  They were only together for around 10 years, 1960-1970, but are considered one of the most influential bands of all time!  (and one of my favorites!!!)  In fact, VH1 recently shared the results of the "Top artists of all time" list.  The Beatles ranked first on the list.  The list was compiled by hundreds of contemporary musicians...

The most famous Beatles performance was the first time that they played The Ed Sullivan Show on February 9th, 2010.

Obviously, they had many, many more songs... 

Write your favorite Beatles song in the comments!

Now back to John Lennon.  When the Beatles broke up in 1970, John worked on more independent music.  He was a pacifist who worked towards Peace.  Tragically, he was killed December 8th, 1980.  Thankfully, we still have his music!

One of the most famous songs by John Lennon, "Imagine," is below.

John Lennon Website.  They have lots of information about him on the site!

Have a lovely, peaceful weekend!

Homework:  None, Have a good weekend and don't forget to come to school on Monday!  :)
