John Lennon - Nobody Told Me (1984)

The video features a great quality stereo remaster of the original song which was released in January 1984. Nobody Told Me was incomplete before Lennon's death in 1980, but was completed by his widow Yoko Ono, and released as the lead single from the album Milk And Honey. The track was supposed to be used by Ringo Starr on his eighth solo album Stop And Smell The Roses, but Lennon died before he could complete it.

The lyrics are really worth listening to quite closely and my favourite line is "There's UFO's over New York and I ain't too surprised", which refers to a sighting of a UFO that John had in 1974.

Two more tracks were released as singles from the same album; Borrowed Time which reached #32 in the UK (#108 in the U.S.) and I'm Stepping Out which stalled at #88 (#55 in America).
