      John Lennon and the Beatles: Abbey Road
      LENNON LIVE - ON THE NIGHT

      Stuart Maconie  took us through a night of very special artists performing their chosen Lennon songs in order to reflect on the power of the music and the influence of the man.

      Radio 2 broadcast from Abbey Rd Studio 2, the historic venue in which The Beatles recorded virtually everything they ever made, and from studios in the USA.

        Paul Weller remembers John Lennon

        Abbey Rd Studio 2 is full of atmosphere and nostalgia. Barring the occasional coat of paint, little has changed since The Beatles changed the musical world in there, for obvious reasons. In one corner is the old Bechstein upright piano used to record Lady Madonna. In another a newer, smaller upright which was allegedly used for A Day In The Life. Two chords on both confirm the myths instantly.
         
        Our guest artists and their chosen tracks:

          Katie Melua remembers John Lennon

          Katie Melua says: 

          "I chose Lucy In The Sky because it is so not obvious for a guitar voice
          version and it could come out either terribly or rather interestingly.
          In other words, it's a challenge! Cry Baby, Cry is one of the lesser known ones, as an interesting contrast of nursery rhyme naivety with typical Lennon cynicism."
