Default Plastic Ono/Doube Fantasy reissued

'New' Lennon song features chilling lyric
A previously unheard John Lennon song completed shortly before his death disclosed a chilling pointer to his tragic fate.
The song, Help Me To Help Myself, refers to "the angel of destruction" hounding him around. The track is included on a reissued version of Lennon's final album Double Fantasy.

It was released today to mark what would have been his 60th birthday.

The lyric he penned for the track include the lines: "Well, I tried so hard to stay alive, but the angel of destruction keeps on hounding me, all around, but I know in my heart that we never really parted."

A spokesman for his record label Parlophone said it was "spooky" that his words could be interpreted as such a pointed reference to his impending death.

The reissued album also includes the last track Lennon completed on the night he died.

He and his wife Yoko Ono were working on the song, Walking On Thin Ice, shortly before they left their New York apartment and he was killed by Chapman.

Lennon's killer, Mark Chapman was last week turned down for parole. He was carrying a copy of the Double Fantasy sleeve which he asked Lennon to sign shortly before shooting him.

Walking On Thin Ice was later a minor hit for Ono when it was released in 1981.

Lennon's first post-Beatles solo album, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, has also been re-released with extra tracks.

Peace, Love, and Beatles,

Beatle Me This, Beatle Me That
