Song of the Day: John Lennon – “Mother”

On this day in 1970, John Lennon released this song as a single in the U.S., and it eventually climbed to No. 43 on the Billboard Hot 100. Despite the title, the song is written about both Lennon’s parents, each of whom exited his life while he was young as his father left his family while he was still a baby and his mother died in a car accident when he was 17 years old. The first track off Lennon’s first solo album, the classic John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, it’s such a powerful, haunting and even disturbing song.
