Oh, I agree. I always think of Lennon's murder when I hear that, also. I know David wrote it much earlier, but I wonder if he dug it up again and included that lyric in "It's No Game" in part DUE to Lennon's murder.

In reply to:

if David was prognosticating, he was predicting shit WAY in advance.


Well, that hasn't stop people writing about that song saying that he was predicting something. But yes, that is pretty stupid assumption.

Vanity is all

Is "Pretty thing" on Tin Machine a reference to Michael Jackson's "Pretty young thing" ?

By the way, part of the lyrics for "It's no game" on TW are wrong.

The true Dadaists are against Dada.

Re: Lennon quotations in DB songs new [re: new_homester]  

Thanx to all. I've remembered a couple more:
- "You really got a good thing going" (Hang On to Yourself) taken from "A Good Thing Going", somebody's blues covered by Rolling Stones on their first album ('really' added),
- "All things must pass" (Heathen) is in fact a title of George Harrison's solo album.

And, believe it or not, one of TM1 songs is a complete reproduction of "Working Class Hero" lyrics... ;)
