johnlennonpeace John Lennons Day In The Life Go Up For Auction

[lastfm]Beatle[/lastfm]maina is about to hit the auction block because[lastfm]John Lennon[/lastfm]’s handwritten lyrics to “Day In The Life” are going up for sale.  Probably you’re not going to sell everything you own to be able to purchase this, but in case you’re just crazy enough to do that, keep reading for the details.

“Day In The Life,” is widely considered one of the best Beatles songs of all time, ALL TIME!  It’s the last track on the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album. Perhaps you can argue the merit of this statement, but then Sotheby‘s would retort by saying exactly what they said to describe the song to begin with, “the revolutionary song that marked the Beatles’ transformation from pop icons to artists.”

Now comes the estimated ticket price of the manuscript at only  $500-700,000.  JUST A MERE HALF MILLION DOLLARS.  So scrape up your pennies and get ready for June 18th, when the lyrics finally go on sale.

In the meantime, watch the trailer for the Beatles Rock Band because the Beatles attorneys are such incredible ninjas that there are no [lastfm]Beatles[/lastfm] videos online.
