Lennon Obsession With Number NINE

This may be proof-

As we celebrate what would have been the 78th birthday of John Lennon,  I love sharing these theories of the reported Lennon obsession with the  number 9. Let's take a look:

Born October 9

The first home he lived in was at 9 Newcastle Road, WavertreeLiverpool – three names which each contain nine letters. Newcastle Road was his grandfather's house, and while living there Lennon later wrote One After 909.

Lennon claimed he first met Yoko on 9 November 1966

#9 Dream was a song on Lennon's 1974 album Walls And Bridges. The album was his ninth non-Beatles album, and was issued in the ninth month of the year.

When released as a single, #9 Dream peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States. The refrain in the chorus – 'Ah! Böwakawa poussé, poussé' – featured nine syllables.

Mind Games and Rock 'N' Roll, the albums released before and after Walls And Bridges, each contained 9 letters in their titles.

After he was shot, Lennon was rushed to Roosevelt Hospital on 9th Avenue, Manhattan. Roosevelt and Manhattan both have nine letters. Take a listen to #9 Dream-

John Lennon and the number nine

The long-awaited digital remasters of The Beatles' back catalogue were finally released on 9 September 2009, along with the group's Rock Band video game. The choice of 09-09-09 was no accident, for the number has had a recurring association with the group - and John Lennon in particular - over the years.
