John Lennon: “Watching the Wheels”
ALBUM: Double Fantasy
WRITER: John Lennon
Peaked at number-10 on the Billboard Hot 100.
“Watching the Wheels” was the third and final single from John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Double Fantasy. It’s one that Yoko really appreciates. ”Very wise song, and for him to come to terms with his life in that sense it was a beautiful, beautiful moment, I think. No one else did it that way. It’s almost like a zen monk, you know, zen priest, saying something very wise. And he was wise, yeah.”
John Lennon and Yoko Ono entered the Hit Factory in New York to begin recording Double Fantasy on August 4th, 1980.
