Working Class Hero

John Lennon, Composer

... songs to live by ...




John Lennon / Plastic Ono Band

There’s room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill

I actually prefer Marianne Faithfull's version of this song. I know, I know...I'm a heathen.

Her version is a great one. David Bowie also did a fine job with the song. I'm just a Lennon freak.

I like all three versions, but John Lennon's feels so "soulful"(as always!)
