Song: Nobody Told Me
Artist: John Lennon
Favorite Lyric: Always something happening and nothing going on
There’s always something cooking and nothing in the pot
Significance: This is off John Lennon’s posthumous album Milk and Honey. I’m noticing a theme within my selections of juxtapositions. This versus that, is versus isn’t. This is a great example of that. Yesterday I called McCartney’s lyrics inconsequential, and John Lennon’s lyrics are never so. Even within this tune, which is pretty light, the wordplay is intriguing.
