Grant Morrison Sings a Song Given to Him by John Lennon in a Magic Ritual [Video]


Just what the headline says, people. Grant Morrison performed this song during a recent event at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles, thanks to the urging of My Chemical Romance frontman (and Umbrella Academy writer) Gerard Way. As Way explained, Morrison was given this song by the spirit of John Lennon, which Morrison communed with in a magic ritual while writing The Invisibles.

I think it says a lot about the wonderfully enigmatic Grant Morrison that the only reason this surprised me at all was that I didn’t know he played guitar. It actually sounds a great deal like a Beatles song, and we’ve typed up the lyrics to go along with the video after the jump.

Lyrics:

Keep taking the pills
Keep reading the books
Keep looking for signs that somebody loves you

Keep walking the dog
Keep taking the drug
Keep looking for signs that somebody loves you

One and one and one makes two
If you really want it to
Talking bout love
Talking bout love

Keep watching the skies
Just a word to the wise
When will you realize
That somebody loves you?
Somebody loves you

One and one and one makes two
If you really want it to
Talking bout love
Talking bout love

All I wanted to be
All I wanted to be
Was a Beatle like you
John Lennon like you
John Lennon like
John Lennon like
John Lennon like
John Lennon like you
John Lennon like you
John Lennon like you
