(#2) In this portrait of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Annie Leibovitz relies on intimacy for effect. Her aim was to immortalise the couple's deep love for one another. But within hours of taking this photograph John Lennon was shot dead. Distributed around the world as a 'Rolling Stone' magazine cover, the photograph was instantly transformed. It became a memorial to Lennon and a symbol of the vulnerability of human passion. (Source: Quoted from website of National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburg, UK)

約翰·連儂
本名: John Winston Lennon
出生: 1940-10-09 英國利物浦
逝世: 1980年12月8日(40歲)被謀殺於美國紐約州紐約市
職業: 音樂家、創作歌手、藝術家、和平主義者、作家、唱片製作人

約翰·溫斯頓·小野·連儂,John Winston Ono Lennon, 是一名英國搖滾音樂家、創作歌手、作家與積極的和平運動家,以身為披頭四樂隊創團團員揚名全球。連儂與保羅·麥卡尼的合作是20世紀最成功也是最具影響力的創作組合之一,並創作了搖滾史上最受歡迎的歌曲,他在單曲榜史最有成就的作曲家中名列第二,僅次於麥卡尼。因其在音樂界的活躍和貢獻,在1965年獲英國女王頒發大英帝國勳章。連儂在他的音樂、電影、書作中,甚至在記者會與專訪時,總是顯露出一種桀驁不馴、反抗權威的性格與尖刻而諷刺的才思。與他的妻子小野洋子同為激進和平主義者與視覺藝術家,所以其作品亦是極具爭議性。在披頭四樂隊解散後,連儂發行《約翰連儂/塑膠小野樂隊》與《想像》等備受讚譽的專輯,也創作了Give Peace a Chance, Imagine等傳唱度極高的經典歌曲,順利開創了單飛生涯,為陪伴兒子尚恩成長而自願「引退」,之後連儂以專輯《雙重幻想》復出樂壇,但發行不到一個月的時間便遭到槍殺!!!!

《Let it be》Lyrics 歌詞

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be


And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right it front of me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be


Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be


And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer
Let it be


For though they may be parted there is
still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer
Let it be


Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
yeah, there will be an answer
Let it be


Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be


And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine until tomorrow
Let it be


I wake up to the sound of music
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be


Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
There will be an answer
Let it be


Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
There will be an answer
Let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be


今日心緒不寧嘗試減壓聽聽 Let it be
可惜收效不大!
