Working Class Hero by John Lennon

John Lennon Week comes to an end today at The Lost Soul of Rock and Roll.The song of the day for October 12, 2012 is 'Working Class Hero' by John Lennon. This song was released in 1970 on the John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band album.

'Working Class Hero' is one of those songs that fuels the fire for the John Lennon haters. They think he's some sort of Communist minstrel, but John's just telling the truth. I find it interesting that the truth tellers are viewed as problematic. John's not telling people to break the law or do something unethical. All he is saying is that you can become part of the machine or be your own person. You can be miserable in life doing some mindless task or you can find happiness. A working class hero is something to be. Thanks. John. You are missed.
