John Lennon was killed on December 8, 1980. Lists of Note has unearthed a hand-written to-do list Lennon left for his assistant, Fred Seaman, just months before his death. Lennon composed the list on a yellow notebook paper with a black felt-tip ink. It revealed, among other things, that Lennon had a thing for chicken and organic carrots. So that’s the secret recipe for great songwriting. Chicken and carrots.

Here’s a readable version:


1) What was the result of taking Y’s spoiled blouse to cleaners?

2) Why not?

3) Chicken

4) Strawberries

5) Spinach


6) Carrots (Better Nature has some good organic ones)

7) Apples (?) Blueberries:

8 ) Try next to leave letters & mags in office all day/everyday.

9) Billy Graham (new book on him)

10) Get some nice white flowers and put on Y’s desk (in vase) from ‘Daddy & Sean’

11) 1 (one) Yogurt (Plain)
