John Lennon was born in Liverpool on October 9, 1940. Then his father, Fred Lennon, off at sea. His father didn”t turn up again until five years later, and when he did he tried to take john away from his mother, Julia, when she refused to restart her life with him. Instead, he grew up in the Liverpool suburb of Woolton, with his Aunt Mimi and Uncle George Smith, at 251 Menlove Ave, which became nicknamed Mendips. Julia died in 1958, in an automobile accident practically in front of Mendips, when John was seventeen.
It was at Liverpool Art College, in 1956, a friend played him Elvis “Heartbreak Hotel, and John”s musical interest was piqued. Then he heard Lonnie Donegan”s Rock Island Line on Radio Luxembourg, and became part of the new Skiffle craze by begging his Aunt Mimi until she broke down and bought him a guitar, although she forever told him he would never get anywhere with it. He had already learned to play the harmonica during his childhood, and he taught himself the guitar by applying banjo chords that his mother had taught him. In 1955 he started his own band, the Quarrymen, with his long time pal and fellow troublemaker Pete Shotton, singing all the popular songs, sometimes making up the words when he couldn”t”t get them all off the radio. Also in the Quarrymen were Nigel Walley and Ivan Vaughan, the rest of John”s gang. It was Ivan Vaughan who introduced John to his friend, Paul McCartney, in 1957. John married his girlfriend of four years, Cynthia Powell, in 1962. She was pregnant with their son Julian at the time, who was born in April, 1963.
Hey, Jude, don’t make it bad Take a sad song and make it better Remember to let her into your heart Then you can start to make it better Hey, Jude, don’t be afraid You were made to go out and get her The minute you let her under your skin Then you begin to make it better. And any time you feel the pain, hey, Jude, refrain Don’t carry the world upon your shoulders Well don’t you know that its a fool who plays it cool By making his world a little colder
Hey, Jude! Don't let her down You have found her, now go and get her Remember, to let her into your heart Then you can start to make it better. So let it out and let it in, hey, Jude, begin You're waiting for someone to perform with And don't you know that it's just you, hey, Jude, You'll do, the movement you need is on your shoulder Hey, Jude, don't make it bad Take a sad song and make it better Remember to let her into your heart Then you can start to make it better
It was a silent night. A father and his son were sitting next to the fireplace. It had been a long time, but the son still could not get out from the shadow of the broken marriage of his parents. In order to make his son cheer up again, the father told him a story…… Many years ago, I was still single. God showed mercy to me, so he gave his most beautiful angel -- your mother to me. Since your mother came to our family, we had had a happy time together and then gave birth to you.
I know you still remember the happiness we had together. But now, God let his angel bring the same happiness to other people, leaving you only sadness. But the fact that I must tell you is that she didn't leave us! She is praying for you no matter when and where you are. “ So my dear son, don ’ t make it bad. By making your world a little colder. You should know that the movement you need is on your shoulder. Then you can start to make it better…… ” his father said.
The song is not only beautiful but also meaningful. We learn a lot life philosophy from the song. When we were in trouble, we must try to solve them. We would get better sooner or later. We are in the world that is full of hope. A kind-hearted person always helps you if you are in trouble. So wherever we are that we never give up! A man can never have too many dreams. It ’ s lucky that a person can find them. If you have already caught it, you should do your best to make it come true. On the way that you run after your dream, more difficulties you have, more gain you ’ ll get. There ’ s no difference between persevering and success.
Perseverance to the end, you will certainly lead to success. Just as John sang in the song “ remember to let her into your heart, then you begin to wake it better ”. I was also moved by the love inside. It makes me know no matter what happened, there are still friends and families loving you and consorting with you. This song leads to a brand mew view of our life and can give us energy to face the difficulty bravely!
