I was in college when Double Fantasy came out, and frankly I couldn't stand it. This acoustic version is much preferable to the studio one. Of course, I remember the day John was shot -- it was a Monday night, I remember hearing it from Frank Gifford. Every so often I go to Strawberry Fields on the anniversary, if you have a chance go do it -- it's a wonderful thing to be surrounded by Beatles' fans singing songs.

Thought he reached a creative peak on double fantasy.. had he lived he would have given paul a helluva run for his money.. and the world would have
reaped the benefit..wha t chapman robbed from our generation is up there with what oswald robbed from his..

So real, raw, and poignant this version. Heartbreakin g to hear it, because just months after he played this he was dead. Along with Muhammad Ali and MLK, Lennon was my hero.

Love this acoustic version! I too cannot believe I never heard it. That day his life was ended horrifically was a sad sad day indeed. I was on a subway in NYC crying as if he were my family/best friend!

What the hell, can't believe I haven't heard this version yet! I've got a bunch of his solo work. I like this version better.

There are no problems, only solutions! Words to live by, if we only try. Much like Harrison's, When you've seen beyond yourself you may find peace of mind is waiting there. And the time will come when you'll see we are all one.

Funny how the acoustic guitar reminds me of The Only Living Boy in New York and Bridge Over Troubled Water by Simon Garfunkel, it is possible that is all running into one another at this point.

I love John Lennon and have since I was 12. It's too bad he was before my time because I would've loved see him perform. He lives on through his music and still strong and still touching people after all these years.

Another example of John's awesomeness right here!

It does, but then for a lot of artists, they peak in their 20s then begin a long, slow creative decline. Had he lived, he may have ended up like McCartney - a bit of a has-been who throws out a crappy record every three or four years then makes a gazillion dollars on tour singing songs he wrote when he was in his 20s. Who knows for sure, though. I'm sure Lennon would prefer being a has-been to being dead.

Great acoustic version. This song says so much about who John was, and why we miss him so much. Doesn't it make you wonder what all those greats we lost too early would have done later in life. Think of where music could be today?

Wow - never heard this version before. Probably my favorite post-Beatles John Lennon song. Awesome!
