John Lennon's Thighs

John Lennon's Thighs
© 2009 by EllaRegina

It was the way they moved—legs spread apart, pulsing steadily, strongly—bouncing with the beat. She could imagine them through his narrow black pants, musculature toned and tense, well-shaped—almost girlishly-curved but manly without a question—Paul and George undeveloped by comparison. And John seemed to know what he was singing about—And when I touch you I feel happy inside... She wanted him to touch her. She wanted to make him happy inside—those thighs gripping her like a nutcracker as she leaned her mouth towards the microphone pointed at her from his groin. He could make her sing—and she would make his heart go boom.

On an index card she noted the exact timings where John's thighs appeared throughout the YouTube clip—including a solid twenty-one seconds during "I Saw Her Standing There," coming in strong and steady from 1:13; and twenty-four seconds at the final strums, from 2:36. In motion again beginning "I Want to Hold Your Hand"—especially nice between 4:56 and 5:11.

She played those bits repeatedly, the other Beatles non-existent—Ringo atop his circular platform, Paul, George—extraneous. John Lennon's thighs, over and again, just for her. And, if she concentrated hard enough, she thought, she could find the secret YouTube button to click: after shaking Ed Sullivan's hand, John would emerge from the screen—alive once more—and lie down with her on the living room couch, his thighs enveloping, pulsating. He would still be in out-of-focus black-and-white but she would not care—and she would let him be her man.

Insert big grin here. I loved this story before over at ATs and still love it! Nice to see you posting it.

What an "Imagine"-ative take on Lennon! I love it (yeah, yeah, yeah)!

Thanks, guys!

Btw, the video referenced in the story is no longer available on YouTube so I substituted this shorter one. It's not in sync and of course the stated timings make no sense because they refer to the other video but at least it's something. And the thighs are there...

Ella, see I always had the hots for Paul. I, fact, when I was thirteen, I had a poster of him on my bedroom wall (and this was the eighties) and I drew a pink, lipstick heart next to his head. I loved him. And I love this flasher. I love your sexy take on Lennon. Marcy Sheiner once wrote a hot piece about Mick Jagger. I love hot stories about rock stars.

A Paul girl, eh? 'TsOK. More John for me. ;-)
