Watching the Wheels (3:06)

Cover of Lennon Legend

From Lennon Legend and 24 other releases

“Watching the Wheels” is a 1981 single by John Lennon, released posthumously after his assassination the year before. It was the third and final single released from Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Double Fantasy album, and reached #10 in the U.S and #30 in the UK.

“Watching the Wheels” concerns Lennon’s dismissal of those who were confounded by his “househusband” years, 1975-1980. During this period, he stayed away from the music industry and raised his son Sean with Yoko. The song’s second verse seems to contain an allusion to Plato’s “Allegory of the cave”.
