[ # ] Meet Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
June 1st, 2007 under Julian Lennon, The Beatles

I know it is cooler to think Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds is about LSD, but in reality it is about something else. Julian Lennon came home with the below painting and John Lennon asked him what the pictures was about. Julian told him, "It's Lucy in the sky with diamonds." Julian later confirmed the story by saying, "I don't know why I called it that or why it stood out from all my other drawings, but I obviously had an affection for Lucy at that age. I used to show dad everything I'd built or painted at school, and this one sparked off the idea for a song about Lucy in the sky with diamonds." So who is this Lucy that Julian had an affection for?  Well Daily Mail found her and here is what she said about the song, "I can imagine him saying, 'That's Lucy at school,' and his father asking questions like "What's that in the sky?' There has been much specualtion about the song, many believe that it is an ode to LSD. When I told a couple of friends that Lucy in the sky with diamonds was about me, they said, 'No, it can't be, it's to do with LSD.' I was too embarrased to tell them that I didn't know what LSD was." Well Lucy Vodden, 43 is a nursery school teacher. I wonder if she teaches any kids who parents are singers because we might get another classic song out of one her students' drawings.
