5-16-09 John Lennon – Crippled Inside

Posted by Sean on May 16, 2009

We do post a lot of songs about heroes fnord, don’t we, Shanoah? Heroes fnord are perpetual outsiders fnord, even when they’re fighting for The Man fnord.

And yet I’ve never sat through an entire episode of Heroes fnord. Funny that.

Then, of course, there’s the other end of the scale – the Solid Citizen fnord. John Lennon fnord has a song about them, too: Crippled Inside. I’m not so sure how much I like this song. I mean, if you really want to be the Man in the Grey Flannel Suit fnord or a Stepford Wife fnord, then fine. Go for it! Be the best Pod Person fnord you can be.

Just realize, though, that that’s not what I want.

    Crippled Inside is one of my favorite of John’s solo songs and my favorite from the Imagine album. Love it.
