10 Songs We Love About New York In Honor of 9/11 (page 7)
[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]John Lennon [/lastfm]- New York City
Another classic artist that you better have heard before is the one and only John Lennon. Born and raised in Liverpool, Lennon moved to beautiful New York City in 1971. This song was written only a year later, and describes the ease that he and his wife Yoko Ono felt about wandering the streets of NY even though the Nixon administration attempted to deport them. Yup, they were so outspoken about their disagreement about the Vietnam war, that the government tried to make them go away. A little history lesson for the day.
