Default Wheels/Karma

Is The John Lennon Collection the only place I can get instant Karam and Watching the wheels? I have a feeling thats going to be expensive, is that my only option?

I'll assume thats a no. If I had mentioned John Lennon when I first showed up here, people would have posted for 3 strait months, now not a post, remarkable.

I've seen it on Amazon going for as little as $0.24, (cheap enough?) second hand.

If it's just the two tracks you want, then I can e-mail them to you from my media player.

Lennon Legend, the CD, has both of those songs.
I could send it to you

Ok so I ended up buying Lennon Legend and im severly disappointed. It came down to a choice between "Instant Karma" and "Woman is the ****** of the world" (off of Acoustic)

Seeing as I'd never heard the latter, I bought legend. Songs like "love" and "beautiful boy" made me cringe they were so bad. I don't know how many of you parade around here saying his some supernatural immortal. I can't say they were all bad, I really enjoyed a few "Mother" "Karma" and "Wheels" but I really don't think, on a CD called Legend of all things, this should have been the kind of stuff they threw on it.

I'll think twice before picking up stuff again.

Dude, give it another listen. The more you dig into it, the more stuff you will find. The begining of the CD is great, and so is the end. The middle is average. Listen to (repeatedly until you love them)

Woman
(Just Like)Starting Over
Nobody Told Me
Stand by Me
Mind Games
Borrowed Time
Working Class Hero
Jelous Guy

If after repeated listens they don't grow on you, then I guess you just don't like it. I bought it, was disappointed but listened to it while falling asleep one night, and now I love it

this might not be a good idea saying this.. but what the hell

i like all of those songs.. that bill is saying give another chance to.. and i agree try and try until either you love it and or hate it..
but....as much as i love the lyrics to "working class hero" i think the song its self sucks.. the way he sings it, the instruments everything just bugs me.. but the lyrics are good.. odd really.. but thats about the only song by john lennon that annoys me..
